LOL, poor kid cannot win. But I am a proud mom :)
My oldest, Sydnee, decided to give public school a try for 5th grade (she has been homeschooled until this year and my son still is homeschooled). I am a huge believer in letting children make their own decisions as long as they stick with them.
When I announced I would homeschool the kids I was torn apart by EVERYONE saying that I was ruining any chance they had at an academic future.
Well Syd ended the year with an 89 average and got the state awards for academic excellence in science and social sciences.
When she called family members to tell them about the awards she was told that it is not fair that she got them, she was homeschooled and had an unfair advantage over the other kids.
What kind of grandparent says that to an 11 year old? The poor kid just can't win!
But I am proud of her on so many levels, she went into a brand new situation and excelled, she never missed an assignment, she joined clubs, she made a ton of new friends, and she never compromised who she was as a person. I am a lucky mom :)
