Hi,

I think that part of the great thing about homeschooling is that your child is exposed to an intelligent adult and therefore learns to think and act like one, instead of learning to think and act like the immature kids he is surrounded by school. So, I think a graduate school environment is ideal. The environment rubs off on the child.

I say take him to class with you with some books and activities for him to do during class, if the professor allows it. If not, leave him in the school library with books and activities. I don't think a librarian would kick him out if he wasn't bothering anyone. If they did, you can always find some spot- hallway or empty classroom or with a secretary in an office where he can wait.

But, I don't think that will be necessary since I think the professors will let you bring him to class.

I think you should get independent curriculums so he can work without you. Only get curriculums that are designed for homeschoolers- not ones adapted from schools, which tend to be more dependent on teachers. Give him a choice of a couple of different ones so he has some buy-in and will be more interested in it.

I suggest you go to homeschoolreviews.com for ideas. I also suggest that he only do a 2-3 subjects at a time with the curriculums because more than that leads to burnout, in my experience. Then, he can spend his time reading for pleasure, writing, playing games, doing activities, etc.

I think grad school is not only good for you, I think it will be great for him also, but it will be hard during the transition for him to get used to it.

Best wishes

Ron
