So.... are you going to home work your children when they're adults? In most cases, I just don't understand why parents choose to homeschool children who are mentally and physically able to attend public or private school. As a self titled "extreme" crunchy attachment parent, I think that homeschooling is (in most cases) a big box of crazy. School is a very, very important irreplaceable life step.. there is a real world out there and HS will not prepare your child for it. I have any least 15 friends with 6-17 year old HS children - I've seen the outcome. These children are so disadvantaged and handicapped by their parents' decision to HS.
