Homeschooled kids.......

Michelle's brother had this to say, he said that he hasn't " met a "normal" homeschooled person yet."
Homeschooled kids not normal? Huh? Well, I am definitely not normal, but that's just me!
My Aunt was an elementary school teacher for many years. She was frustrated with how disobedient and disrespectful the fourth-graders were. Fourth-graders?

Are all school kids bad? No, but what is considered "Normal" today, is horrendous to me.
Now are all homeschooler's good and brilliant? No, but they have a better chance to be.

Imagine, no peer pressure! The chances of you kid ever being offered alcohol or drugs are practically nil. The only profanity they hear will be what you allow on your TV or out of your mouth.

Here's what I say to anyone considering homeschooling. Try it for a year. If its not great then send them back to school. What do you have to lose, except for some blogging time?


PS. Even if I lived in the States and had access to Christian schools, I'd still homeschool. I like the freedom!

We have been homeschooling for 10 yrs. now and we wouldn't put our kids back in public school if we had to. Our kids have enjoyed...well there's probably a better word than that...being homeschooled. They have been separated from other children...but we are thankful for that!! They had a better education and better peers to be around...their siblings!! It has been a struggle at times but both my girls are in 12th grade this year and this will be the last year for us. They are excited and so am I!! It has been worth every minute we have invested into it. I haven't been the best teacher in the world but they did learn a few things...LOL!!
