You know I am curious about this statement.How old is (was?) your gymmie when you switched to homeschool. I already have a registered home school because our oldest had some issues with high school that made it a necessity, so I understand what it means to do it... and how much more parental commitment is needed for the younger kids (4th grade in our case). In NC we have an online school program that is somewhat of a hybrid... I don't know a lot about it yet, but I am hoping it could bring that same balance you see with your DD.
Did you do the actual homeschooling or split it with your wife? Or did your wife do the actual home schooling?
Because if you didn't actually do the homeschooling, you understand the committment but you do not understand the actual day in day out, boots on the ground experience of it. I think its odd that you didn't mention your wife suggesting it.
Sounds like she has a pretty full plate as it is............................. And it circles back around to her feeling overwhelmed and resentful and gym is taking the hit.
This is so not about gymnastics for your wife, but in her eyes looking at statistics and odds, cutting gym hours to give her a break and more time with daughter just makes sense.
Again, not knowing you wife or actual family dynamics, from what little you have shared. Your wife is clearly sending a signal she spread too thin. I am guessing she perhaps has tried telling you this and you have not heard her, she is making the decision and letting you know in a way you will notice. You guys really need to start talking, or actually listening. Perhaps a third party like a therapist can facilitate.
