So…how did you break it to your parents?

17 Jun

Having spoken to lots of families thinking of taking the Home Education route, among the many questions, and thoughts, the main one is how to persuade a father round to the mother’s way of thinking 😉  Another big leap is breaking the decision to your own parents. Some people have lovely supportive families from the off, others have to persuade their’s round, some just never understand!

So…how did you break it to your parents?  Did you take the defensive, with arguments/statements ready to play?

What did you find hardest in starting your journey into home education? Was the decision easy to make?

    I told my parents and one was supportive, one was not so much!

    Both were a little bit uncomfortable with the idea, but after a few months they realised that the kids were the same kids so they relaxed a little bit. Of course I am now getting questions about whether my 10 year old will go to secondary school….which is up to dd.

    Mmmm parents are funny creatures 😉 Mine were initially a bit confused by our decision, but now try to be as supportive as they can, while asking why my second dd isn’t going to preschool…! B’s parents are quietly non-understanding, and am quite sure think I have a screw loose!! My granny remains our biggest supporter which has surprised me in a nice way!


I would love to hear what you think! Please leave a reply
