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!
