I probably read too much but in my latest travels through posts here and in several HS books, I find the term "bad homeschooling" used. To be clear, they are not referring to overt cases of neglect, isolation, abuse, etc. but never have I seen this term defined, nor do I think it can be readily done. There just seem to be SO many ways of HS'ing and one might style might be "bad" to one family but perfect for another. Being a recovering perfectionist and grade-hound, I really struggle with the idea of failing as an HS mother and reading too much (which I do) and following too many HS blogs (which I do) is starting to make me feel like a failure before I begin. My usual self-defeating thoughts are: i would never have come up with that, i don't have those supplies/toys/games/curricula, etc., my kids will never do that, i could never do what those people are doing every day. I don't want to be a "bad homeschooler" but I also don't want to define myself by others' opinions.
So what is bad homeschooling to you?
And how/when do you know you're doing it right?
I LOVE reading what people have to say in this forum, hope this will bring up some interesting experiences and thoughts.
