Subject:         Considering HSing a 7th grader

I am considering homeschooling my upcoming 7th grade son. I homeschooled my older two boys for four years and when I got divorced, I put them all in school. At that time, my youngest (the one I may homeschool) went into kindergarten, so I never really homeschooled him. He struggles a great deal with reading and is very disruptive in school. I get calls regularly from the assistant principal about his behavior. He is your typical, very active, doesn't want to sit still boy! My older two boys do very well in school and do not have any discipline problems and are great readers. I feel my youngest's problem, is that I didn't homeschool him and he did not get a good foundation from the public school system.

I am remarried now, but feel in respect to homeschooling I'd be a single parent, as my husband isn't crazy about the idea and I don't think he would be very supportive. I think he just doesn't really know much about homeschooling. My ex-husband thinks it is a great idea and says he would be behind me in this endeavor.

My dilemma is that I am in my last year of college and attend full-time. My fall semester will be pretty rough, but the spring semester will be less demanding and then I'd graduate in May of 2008. Do you think it is doable? Anyone in a similar situation? Any suggestions for homeschooling a struggling 7th grade reader? If I do homeschool him, I would concentrate mainly on reading for a while until he gets up to speed, incorporating other subjects around his reading difficulties.

Thank you in advance for any advice.
