This thread makes me laugh. I was thinking about it this morning - how it seems very acceptable for people to make negative comments about homeschooling, but how most of us would never say anything negative to someone whose kids were in public school. Yet, sometimes I think it might be funny to make the comments to the other person before they have a chance to make them to us, lol. Something along the lines of
"You actually send your kids to school??? Oh the poor dears. I don't know how you do it. I could never do that. Well I guess they'll get a taste of the real world once they're out of school."
And no, that is NOT how I feel about public school, but it's kind of what many hear about homeschooling, just in reverse.
