This is Why I Homeschooled

When my son was young he was, as he is today, nonverbal. At that time he was also hyperactive and had difficulty focusing causing him to often be in trouble with the teaching staff. This was at a time when kids with significant special needs were still in self contained classes. Today, most children are integrated into regular classrooms, some with one on one aides, depending on their needs. If my son had been in this situation I know he would have caused his teachers great grief. Some of my son’s schoolmates also had difficulty controlling their emotions. Anger is particularly challenging with special needs children.

In our case, we decided we could do better at home and chose to homeschool.

Today as I watched this video of a padded room in the Seattle area I am reminded that most often moms do know best. Yes, sometimes our special needs kids need a time out, a chance to regroup. But I cannot believe putting a child into a padded room without well trained supervision can ever be the best choice.

Conservative Daily News allows a great deal of latitude in the topics contributors choose and their approaches to the content. This is due to our approach that citizens have a voice, not only the mass media. Readers will likely not agree with every contributor or every post, but find reasons to think about the topic and respond with comments. We value differing opinions as well as those that agree. Opinions of contributors are their own and do not necessarily reflect those of CDN, Anomalous Media or staff. Click here if you'd like to write for CDN.

    Thank you for helping keep issues like this out where they cannot be forgotten. I’ve always believed that it takes a special person to have these special challanged children. Like so many others I get so wrapped in my own little space, I forget…Parents of special need children are a blessing to the child & to us. Through them, we remember what is really valuable…

    I do cherish the manner when you have framed this particular difficulty plus it really does present us a lot of deacyed plant material for thought. On the other hand, via what precisely I’ve truly witnessed, I simply wish if your actual suggestions stack upon that people today keep on issue and not start upon the soap package of the announcement of the day. All the same, thank you for this unique exceptional element and whilst I do not concur with all the idea in totality, I respect your perspective.
