What is it to be social? To know there are different "ranks" of other children. The popular clique, the nerdy group, all it is is separation.
We are all humans that should all be equal.
Society teaches whats "cool" and whats not.



I have plenty of friends that are mothers like me, our children play together and he gets social interaction.



Most every child I see thats in daycare comes home bring back bad habits that OTHER children taught them while no one was watching.
I like the idea of knowing what is going on with my son all the time.

I don't feel qualified enough to teach my kids, especially as they get into high school age academics. For example, I suck at math. I also don't want to put our kids in front of a computer for several hours to teach them, like many home school programs offer to do now days. I believe kids need to be interacted with other humans more then a computer.



That being said if people feel they are qualified to teach all ages at home then go for it. As long as laws are being followed, and they make sure to do different activities for socialization then sure why not.

We home school. For now. The only reason we do is because we want to travel. It's very competitive getting leave over here since so many are bound by the kids' school calendar.

I only know two people who were home schooled through high school, one is now a lawyer and his sister is 22-23 and will be starting her medical residency next year.

its really a bold statement to be against homeschooling cause your friend failed at it.
Not all adults will fail at homeschooling like your friend did.

right, because bad habits are exclusively picked up in school.



Nowhere else where there are other children.



Do you have any idea how ignorant you sound right now?:lol:

Perhaps lol. I've seen her in other posts and she is definitely the type that falls into that category.

It's called a small garden on our apartment porch. I work at home, my husband works outside of home. We both still manage to have time for our kids. Besides it's quality not quantity that matters.

You are making a really bold statement against public schooling because you had a bad experience.



Not all children will fail at public school.

Um, they will be in school because teachers are people that went to school specifically to educate a young mind and are qualified to do that. Im not. You sound really ignorant.

Quoting Spacetits:" Grow their own food? How is sending them to school stopping that? The logic of this post is just... wow."


Because like I said, most parents think their child is getting all they need from their school setting so they never bother teaching them basic human skills like growing their own food, building solar panels, or filtering their own water. It basically teaches them to rely on other sources instead of doing it themselves.
Which is why we are such a reliant society, and dont do much on our own.

You can teach your kid to garden at any point. I mean I've planted seeds in a cup with my toddlers. Do I think that's more important than teaching them how to read or write? No I don't. Implying that makes you sound a little nuts. :)



Also, I've been home with my kids all day every day. I don't send them to school because I don't care. I want them to be able to have experiences outside of our family. I want them to be exposed to ideas/subjects that I don't know about. I want them to make friends with people outside of their brothers/neighbors/relatives. I want them to go to college one day and not end up being a farmer because that's the only thing my boys parents thought was important for them to learn.
