You can also teach your child these things by doing them yourself and leading by example while they go to school

I think she's the kind of person you were referring to when you said "However, I think there are a ton of people out there who have no business homeschooling their child(ren) what so ever." ... right? :wink:

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:

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.
