Hey there, I am sorry your in this spot. You are not whining, you are in need of support and that is why we are here. Please remember I am not an expert on homeschooling and many people love it. But just looking at your individual situation this would be how I would make my decision.
If you honestly don’t want to homeschool your child, if you suspect that you will resent the time and effort that is involved in homeschooling, or if you believe that the socialization aspect of public schooling is at least as important as the academic aspect, then you should not allow yourself to be talked into homeschooling. Most likely, the result will not be satisfactory for either you or your son.
It’s possible to homeschool without research, but that’s like parenting without thinking about why you make your choices. So, once you’ve decided to homeschool, you will be spending just as much time as your son with your nose in a book, or doing on-site research. In fact, in the beginning, you’ll probably be learning a lot more than your son is. That is a very tiring.
I think looking into the alternative school may be your best choice first.
I know this is a decision you will have to make yourself as your son is sold on the idea of home schooling. It looks more appealing to him than struggling in a social situation.
I hope this has helped some. Bless you and keep posting. You are a great Mother..................
