I have not read many of the posts, but I know for a fact that I don't have the patience to homeschool, teach in a public school, or any other learning environment. Some people are excellent at taking the time to explain concepts and introduce new materials and ideas. I am not one of those. I spent some time as a corporate trainer and I had to constantly keep from telling people to figure it out for themselves.
Even when DS asks me something that phrase comes to the front of my mind. I don't ask people for help when I need it, because I am better at teaching myself. In fact when I explain things to others I often end up confused and frustrated.
All of my friends who want to homeschool and are making plans to do so in the next two to three years have either taught or are in school for teacher education. They know that "I could never do that", because I say it, but they also know that I support them 100% in their decisions. If I did not want foreign language immersion for my son, I would truly find a way to contirubute to their co-op so that they could teach DS.
Having such self awareness is an admirable quality, and it sounds like you've weighed all of your options. Thus, you are very very different from those who make flippant comments while knowing nothing or next to nothing about homeschooling, have never met homeschooled children before, and have never even considered homeschooling as an option. It is bizarre to me that there are people who make comments like "I don't have the patience to homeschool", when they don't even know what it means. THAT is the frustration that many of us are venting about.
The best comment that I've gotten to date is "Oh, I could never homeschool. My husband thinks homeschooled kids are weird" , and a close runner up goes to "I wouldn't want to homeschool because I want my children to learn that they can make it in this world without me." What would one say to those kinds of remarks?
