Hi all. I hope you dont mind if I use you as a sounding board.
This past weekend, we went to a friends house. It was her birthday and every year she has a theme party. No children, all adults. It is an equal mix of parents vs non parents. School aged parents vs baby parents.
My friend and I were talking about my decision to homeschool this fall. Since it was a party there isnt much privacy, but we weren't speaking loudly or to the group as a whole. It seems like that night EVERYONE had an opinion. I don't mind if anyone disagrees with me. They dont know our circumstances or why we reached the decision we did, but they sure didnt mind offering up an opinion. Not one person bother to ask, WHY we choose to.
Maybe I was just being sensitive, but a lot of these people arent even friends, they are mearly aquaintances that are friends with the friend that invited me.
Do you find that people seem to always have an opinion on your parenting choices whether it is homeschooling or something else?
