Don't feel too bad, I got into a heated "discussion" with my bachelor brother in law about homeschooling, vax, etc. Apparently I'm doing my kids a disservice because they're "not learning social skills," which is hilarious to me because said bro-in-law is rather socially inept- and went to school his whole life. (He's a computer geek, just like my husband- smart but lacking social skills.)
My brother always tells me how I can better raise my kids. He and his wife have none.
My dad constantly asks my ds if he's looking forward to going to school (and has been aware of our choice to homeschool since ds was about 2, and he's 5 now). Ds finally asked him to stop talking to him about it because it's bothering him.
Some people just...don't...get...it. It's not up to us to homeschool our relatives about the prospects of homeschooling. Some people had such wonderful school experiences that they can't understand why you'd want to "deprive" your child/ren of those same experiences. I was not one of those people. My kids already are ostracized all the time (by strangers, nonetheless, ie- at gymnastics open gym, never having been there before, a group of kids decided to ignore my son- all he did was walk out onto the floor, sigh...) and I am not going to make them suffer for their entire childhood just to please people who THINK they know what's best for my kids.
Cheer up and ignore the woman. She can send you whatever she wants, but if she truly wants to learn about it, it's up to her to learn on her own, suffice it to say.
Leave a bunch of homeschooling books in visible places. They're welcome to read if they'd like.
(I looked further and saw things are better, so good for you guys, I'm glad. I still stand by what I said, lol!)
