I do not home school, but I wanted to make a suggestion(for whether
you homeschool or not). My daughter who is in 3rd grade(also gifted)
started kindergarden with a strong self-esteem and after the girl
bullies got done with her, her self-esteem was terrible! The kids
were awful. Nine months ago, my daughter started Kempo Karate. Her
Sensi is amazing! Not only does he advocate standing up for
themselves (verbally first, self-defense only if necessary), but by
progressing from one belt to another and learning how to defend
herself, she has now stood up to many bullies in the school(verbally
only) and her self-esteem has skyrocketed! She doesn’t come home
crying everyday and she is even standing up for other kids in school
that are getting picked on. And not once has she ever laid a hand(or
foot) on anyone! Is there a Karate school near you? It is wonderful
disipline and even though it costs $99/month for 3 days a week, it is
well, well, well worth it to see my daughter happy and confident!
Good luck and email me off line if you want to talk more.
