Going Against the Flow

Just had to share this extremely relevant cartoon:

This is so true for so many homeschool families I have seen, including the one I grew up in. The parents step out against the flow of society, homeschooling, doing things differently, exercising their independence and autonomy, but they somehow can’t tolerate their children doing the same. “Get back in like with the rest!” they order any child who acts autonomously, embraces independence, and dares to be different from them. And they don’t even recognize their own hypocrisy.
