 I here it from many people so, I like everyone else here don't vent to just anyone.

We have a lot of bad days here but it has nothing to do with homeschooling. I have an 18y/o son that has Autism so he is more like an 11 - 12y/o. Then I have an 8y/o that has no problems she is just stubborn & bossy. And last but not least I have a 6y/o son that has Autism that is like dealing with a 2-3y/o that has very good command of his verbal skills until he gets P.Oed Then he just screams. Not to mention that we are a one income family & with the price of everything going up but our income not going up makes me stressed almost all the time about money.

I feel you!

I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels this way. A lot of people think I've 'brought this on myself'. Oh, and my mom is good at chiming in with, "You're the one who wanted such a big family." blargh

LOL Some days are just harder than others. I want to whine with no judgements or feeling like I'm letting the homeschool flag droop. Who is going to want to try it, if I whine too much? You know what I mean?

I seriously hate that.  Not right at all.  So from now on when someone has a bad day at work I should be sure to tell them they should quit immediately.  LOL.

Been there! Now that my oldest 2 are done homeschool and at college they've shut up a little, but I still get comments and insinuations about it on occasion.

Right?! I read a good blog recently that talked about perspectives. No one has the same perspective unless they're looking at it from your exact point if view, & that soooo makes sense when it comes to education. Everyone has their opinion & are so very quick to give it. But there's no way they can see it as you do unless they're you! Vent all you need, just be careful who you chose. And to those unsolicited remarks, well, just ignore them if you can.
