Seriously?! Go F*** yourselves! (big vent post with profanity and it is LONG!)
(please see 1st 2 comments for the rest of the story)
I have come to the conclusion that MOST my friends are complete dickholes! Here is a snipit of conversation that happened due to my current fb status. I only included a few of their comments otherwise you'd be reading this post until fucking tomorrow! Fb Status is in blue, comments are in red! Please keep in mind that my children are 5, 3, and 1.
Just got all my kids school supplies for about $20. That includes their workbooks! I'm so excited. Kiara and Braelynn are both excelling with Hooked On Phonics... I am starting Brae at the same time (not same level) because she hates being left out. But Brae already has her first 5 letters memorized ABCDE :)
Once I get their school binders together I will take photos! I plan on getting crafty.
(Note the 1st couple posts were positive ones about how awesome it was that I was homeschooling my children. Then this chaos followed.)
D-bag2: They are gonna be so socially awkward
D-bag3: Really Tracy? They are already awkward and behind. Home schooling is the dumbest thing anyone could ever do to their child. Your poor kids have been throigh enough in their little lives and now you are going to take away any normal life they even had a chance at. My heart is aching for those babies right now. =o<
Me: My kids are NOT awkward... and behind?! Seriously? Kiara can count, add, subtract, and tell time. She knows most of her alphabet and we're working on advancing that. I have kept up with what she is supposed to know and she is either beyond it in certain areas or right on track. I cannot believe you can be so HATEFUL to me! Seriously? My children are my WORLD! They speak really well and I have them involved with other children. My kids act completely NORMAL around other children and adults. Homeschool does not mean that they will not be around kids. I have been making sure that my kids get more interaction than their siblings.
You seriously attacked me for doing what I as the parent feel is best in their situation. You did for your what you felt was best, let me do mine and stop being so judgmental.
D-bag3: The word awkward is not rude. I love those kids and they are good kids. They just are awkward around others. It is not a bad thing. They are beautiful creative kids who deserved to be with other kids on a daily basis. They deserve to have friends. It breaks my heart that the people they interact the most with now is their parent's friends. I am not attacking Tracy I am just tired of seeing those beautiful children being held back from being kids. I have seen so many kids home schooled over the years and I have yet to see one who didn't have a hard time overcoming social situations. I know the intent is good but you guys really need to think hard about how you want your kids to turn out. I am not trying to be difficult here. I really do love these kids and I have been in their lives a lot for awhile but I have seen so many kids who have struggled as adults because they were home schooled and I realize it is my opinion but it also a very big pet peeve of mine. When you guys are my age you will understand. I love Tracy as if she was my own kid and she knows when I put it out there I mean it otherwise you don't hear from me. Tracy I think it is great to work with the kids on things they need for school but they really need to go to school. Do you realize if your parents had done that to you, you would have never met some of the great friends you have especially the ones who love you and your kids enough to be honest with them.
