Okay, so here is my story~ Me, my husband and twin girls live in an apartment complex. I home school my girls who are almost 12. We have a curriculum that I do everyday with them, but also allow them to take short breaks during the day. This might include a short bike ride together, walking the dogs, or catching bugs. So, here is my question....if people see my girls outside without me during school hours, can they call cps? If so, is there a way that I can make it obvious that I home school? Has anybody actually been through this, or know someone who has? Oh, and sometimes I might have them walk to the store to get a couple of things, which, the back of Albertsons is probably less than 100 feet from our front door, and I know they get looks in there as well.Answer Question

Who cares what anyone thinks?? I home schooled our son until he was 9. I got a few looks "but no one ever said anything....ever". As long as you have a curriculum and they are registered never mind what anyone thinks. Good for you by the way. The 1st 7 years are the formative years. I did what I felt comfortable with for those years. Sounds like you have decided for important reasons as well. Good luck.

I don't think anyone can say anything. Its not like your not educating them. People tend to look and stare when they don't know their situation.
