I haven't read the other replies yet (I will!) but I have some family members that are PS teachers. One in particular, upon finding out about our homeschooling, says "well, what did I go to college for?" She spreads that around and of course my family is thinking "You are right! you went to COLLEGE to be able to teach children! She has her high school diploma and didn't even GO to college...no WAY is she qualified to teach her own kids!"
is what I find insulting. These people only know my children from visits at Christmas, who are they to judge? They have no idea what our family life is like at home...let alone would they even begin to see how much better off our kids are here, at home with the family that loves and adores them.
