Im reading through the poll "Were you bullied in school" Im almost in tears!
But if so many people got so hurt in school-- why do so many want to send their kids into the same battlefield!
If so many were bullied in school, why is homeschooling such a bad idea for most?!
Does everyone have the "I lived through it so can they" or "Ill protect them" mentality! Parents getting into the situation usually makes it WORSE.. and thats even if you ever have a clue your child is being bullied!

First of all it isn't surprising that most of the people that would post on a poll about bullying would be those who have been or know someone that is or was.Â We tend to answer the posts that focus on things that affect us personally.Â For example, I'm not as likely to reply to a poll on what it's like to be a teen mother because I wasn't.Â Also you are going to get the worse horror stories for the same reason.Â
Second, homeschooling to avoid bullies isn't the best reason to home school.Â At some point in life we will all encounter someone who just doesn't like us, it is far better to teach your child how to deal with things than to hide your head in the sand, or to isolate your child.Â I have always told my children, remember for every one bully there are five people that like you.Â So you may prevent kids from being bullied but you also isolate them and prevent them from making as many friends.

you also isolate them
only if you set out to. school is not the only place to socialize, in fact it's often said in school that the students AREN'T there to socialize.
