 Hey moms-

I recently read a featured post on CM and it amazed and disgusted me how many people were saying the most hurtful, ignorant things about parents that homeschool, as if their way were the only way. I am thrilled homeschooling my boys, and they are at or above grade level in EVERYTHING, have a bunch of friends, and are so much happier than most of them! I guess the ignorance and cruelty still shocks me- how can moms be so MEAN??

Was this the one on how hs'ing parents should be able to write a "coherent sentence"?  My response to that was this:

How many college graduates with average grades or lower are teaching in the public school system? 

Ultimately, for me, I understand the many reasons people homeschool, and every family has their own priorities.   Just like in ps, everyone has their talents and it might not be in the field of language arts.  I understand what you mean though.  If anything, ps advocates should be thanking homeschoolers because classrooms are already overcrowded.

People attack HS because when we say, "i HS and we love it!" what they hear is "i care about my children and it is obvious you do not." so they immediately go on the defensive and start attacking with the most ridiculous things in order to say, "see, you are screwing up your kid. I obviously love mine more!"

Ignorant is right! I posted on that thread in defense of homeschoolers.

 they dont really know what homeschooling is, the public school did its work on those people, corupted their minds!

really if its something we are not sure of or maybe heard someone else saying they didnt like or agree with it, well then it must or might not be the thing to do! ive noticed some people that speak out against hsing, turn into homeshcoolers themselves!  watch want we criticize, cuz we will probably be doin it ourselves!hahahaha
