I need a change

My 13 year old son does not do well in school. Over the years he has mentioned that when he is alone in the hall doing his work or in the office and is doing daily work he enjoys it. He says he can concentrate better. He says he feels he can get more done without all the pressure and distractions. He has ADD. He has mentioned this throughout his elementary years on several occasions. He is now starting Jr High. He is behind in his education. I hate sending him to school almost as much as he hates going. What should I do? Im a single mom. I work full time running my own company. Should I consider some kind of alternative education??

You can do it!

You have several options open to you. You can choose some type of online school that your son could use while you are at work. Here are some choices - https://www.homeschool-how-to.com/online-homeschool-programs.html.

Or you could work with your son in the evenings when you come home. He could go with you to work possibly and help there and then do his schoolwork in the evenings.

If you are committed to making this work, you will be able to make it work. Check out the pages on this site. There are over 300 pages of information. Let me know if you need any other advice.
