Why I Withdrew My Kid From School by The HillJean
As a product of home and private school this whole public school thing is brand new to me. My own lack of experience may be why I ignored the sick feeling that coincided with my daughter’s first day of Transitional Kindergarten. I let that feeling hang onto me for two weeks. I ignored that feeling just like I ignored the pressing thoughts that kept clamoring inside my head.
Sometimes the voice inside your head just isn’t enough. Sometimes it takes the crying voice of your child to tell you the thing that your mind, body, and soul are ignoring. I had to learn in a very painful way that my little girl wasn’t ready for school. I could no longer ignore my child’s tears and my own heart.
ABOUT HILLARY: I’m basically a goof-ball who likes cute clothes. I do things by trial and error and get lots of chuckles along the way. My blog and YouTube channel showcase the goofiness. I married my high school sweetheart and he morphed into a philosopher grad student when I wasn’t looking. Our two kids are wild and sweet, funny and frustrating. I like to talk a lot about the exhausting task of parenting. I like to share yummy recipes and horrible disasters. I do serious, too. I’ve battled rheumatoid arthritis and a vicodin addiction. So if you’re in the mood for something a little more murky you can check those things out. Otherwise, come on over and have a laugh.
