S/O HOMESCHOOLERS

Mocking people that choose to homeschool, seriously?

Have you seen the post asking why homeschooling parents think their "special snowflakes" are too good for "real" school?

I saw a post last week saying that parents of special needs children shouldn't be in "real" school!  You can't have it both ways!!!

The use of the offensive "snowflake" term alerted me to the dramam within. I didn't bother opening it.

I never used the term "snowflake" before Cafemom. Now I call my ex's kid that all the time.

Well, to whomever made such a comment....come hither.....let me ask you this....don't you think a child who isn't doing so well in "real" school deserves as much of a chance to shine as any other child???  My child was failing....in Kindergarten!!!....so you're damn right I pulled my child out and started to homeschool.....less than a year after starting, my child took a state issued "placement" test and is now grading between a second and third grade level!!!   Personally, I would rather watch my child grow and shine.....at home.....then wither and die in "real" school.  You're entitled to your own opinion, but you'd be wise to better educate yourself about the MANY, MANY benefits of homeschool.....such as the FACT that over 90% of those that are homeschooled end up with better paying jobs than their "traditionally educated" counterparts.....there's some food for thought, yes??

It's just another way for mom's to be judgmental on either side. A lot of people put down homeschooling without taking into consideration that some kids just learn best in a different environment than a traditional classroom or that some public schools are so crappy and/or dangerous, one would be crazy to send a child there.

But, there are plenty of judgy mom's on the other side of the coin as well... I had to roll my eyes a little while back when one mom here took me to task for saying my kid's are homeschooled. Apparently, because my kid's curriculum comes from the public school system, they are not homeschooled, even though they do their schooling from home. According to this mom, the only reason why I say my kids are homeschooled is because I want "bragging rights". 

Yep... this subject is becoming just another club for mom's to beat a dead horse with.

I went and replied twice. I couldn't help myself. I figure that perhaps someone will hear what I have to say. I never take offense at those posts but I will always try and set the record straight. Most of the time it is people looking for drama or just ignorant of what homeschooling is like. Homeschooling is awesome but not for everyone.
