Frugal, food growing mama to my four loves
Bit of Back Story:
DS's paternal grandpa (Boots) (step dad to ds's dad) is a teacher. I mean I had always known that he is a teacher, but I just realized that all this time me or ds's dad have brought up homeschooling (we plan to unschool, but I just say homeschool to save a lot of time of explaining unschooling) many times. Well Boots has never made any comments what so ever that would appear that he disagrees with homeschooling or that he is offended by it, and trust me he is a very blunt person. I was homeschooled and my mom new people who were teachers that were offended by the fact that she homeschooled her children, so I am really thankful that it appears that Boots won't be saying anything negative about it, so hopefully it won't be a common thing even though it was for my mom.
Do you find that teachers are offended when you say you homeschool/unschool? Is this a common thing?
