I hear people all the time say they "couldn't homeschool" and hear them complain when it is spring or summer vacation because their kids are driving them nuts. I apologize to anyone who I may be offending here, but since when is it someone elses job to raise your kids? Did *you* have them, or adopt them? Then YOU are the one responsible for them until they are 18.
I also hear my neighbor often say "it's the school's job to teach my kid to read, not mine!" or "that's her dad's job, I don't care if she (for example rides a bike) ever!"
I personally feel I am responsible for everything regarding my child! And if someone helps me out, that's a total bonus, but never would I expect someone else to teach my kid without me helping, even if they were public schooled. I can see if they are wanting to learn about something and I have no clue, then I would ask for help if I couldn't figure it out, but the amount of people who expect other's to teach/care for their kids amazes me.
Sorry, but I keep hearing how people can't stand being with their kids all day and it's driving me insane! haha
