7 Myths About Homeschooling


I homeschooled my kids.

What I got for my effort was straight A college students who also hold down jobs, make friends and think for themselves. No drugs. No arrest records. No unhappy memories of eye-rolling, back-talking teen-aged rebellions.

Try it.

    Maybe a little over-acted…

    Seriously, a few years ago I was around some home-schooled kids and public school kids about the same time. One group was generally insecure, cliquish, unable to relate to adults, and often sullen. The home-schooled kids were the opposite, which matched my other experiences with kids.

    Yep, I was homeschooled. My cousins thought we didn’t do anything (they were jealous), our aunts worried we weren’t learning anything (bro and I graduated college, most of our cousins didn’t), and were too sheltered (we didn’t do drugs, make babies, or get arrested. ever. darn). Yeah, it was terrible, going to college and knowing about classical poets and art and science and history and modern geography and how to study, but not which pop star had put out which song (yes, we knew who Madonna and MJ and Aerosmith were, we just didn’t listen to them). If hubby and I are blessed with kids, there’s no question in my mind where they will be getting their education. :)

    Great job as a mother and teacher Rebecca. That was probably when homeschooling was less common than now. My wife and I don’t personally feel qualified to homeschool, so we are sending our son to school. It’s only pre-school right now, but I can see so many bad habits he’s picked up it makes our blood boil. Come next year, he’s going to Catholic school.

      Good move Manny. Protect your child. I didn’t want to homeschool. It was something I had to do for my kids. I am very glad I did.

      Good luck, Manny, but as you know, there are Catholic schools and Catholic schools. Just remember, your mileage may vary. :-(

        Thanks Ken. I realize that. I think the one by me is good. If not, I’ll have to look further.
