"The Bitter Homeschooler's Wish List" - Page 3

post #41 of 51
Heh... yeah, the prom thing. I confess that *in theory*, I would have liked to go to a prom--wearing a beautiful dress, on the arm of the man I loved, sipping something sparkly from a glass. But then... I never *met* the man I loved until I went to Uni... I hate champagne... I'm clueless about hair and makeup... and I can think of nothing worse than spending an evening with my third-form highschool class (I went homeschooling halfway through highschool). So really, in all probability I would have had a miserable time! NOW, if the opportunity arose to don a fancy evening gown and accompany my husband to some manner of shindig... well, that might be fun.

There was a homeschoolers' prom in my city as well, but my sisters and I all went 'meh' one year after another. Clearly we're not prom material...

9. Stop assuming that if we're religious, we must be homeschooling for religious reasons.
Heck yes. I can't count the number of times I've been asked 'Did your parents homeschool you so you wouldn't learn evolution?'. In fact, sometimes it wasn't even asked, just stated--because of course, a religious homeschooler couldn't possibly have any better reason for educating her kids at home... Gah. Not to mention that there's not always 'a' reason for homeschooling--my response to 'Why?' simply can't be condensed into neat bumper-sticker form, and any lengthier explanation is probably going to offend the questioner on some level. So don't ask! I don't ask 'Why are you sending your kids to school?', do I...?

16 Don't ask my kid if she wouldn't rather go to school unless you don't mind if I ask your kid if he wouldn't rather stay home and get some sleep now and then.
YES! Classic.

Loved it! I loved it enough that I decided to purchase the 1st issue of the magazine to see what it's all about.

That is PERFECT!

I think I might carry that list around with me to hand out as needed.
