So my 14 y/o daughter is being told by her friends that she will be 'dumb' and not learn anything homeschooling for high school
Most of her knows this is bulls@%*#, but I can tell at least a little of it is taking hold and causing doubt and worry in her mind. I know her friends truly don't mean harm; they honestly don't know what homeschooling looks like- Side note- One of her friends actually told her that she will sit at the dining room table all day doing worksheets! Thank goodness my girl was able to scoff and laugh that one off! We had a good laugh about that at home too, but it just goes to show how little they understand about homeschooling.
Anyways, any recs for maybe teenage blogs and stuff from homeschoolers she could look at and follow? How have your kids responded to this sort of stuff?
I am planning on buying her that 'teenage liberation handbook' thing/ book at the end of this school year. Any other suggestions to help her gain confidence in her choice to homeschool? (It was her choice).
