Reactions to Homeschooling
"Oh my gosh, you're taking your kids out of school?
I'm just telling you this because I'm concerned."
"What about socialization?
"How do you know that you can teach your own children?"
"So you mean you'll be with your kids all day long?"
"As an educator, I seriously would not
Your kids attend a great school."
I am well aware that what I've shared is certainly nothing new among homeschooling families. It happens all the time, right? All of you "veteran" homeschoolers out there told me that this would happen, so I was well-prepared!! Even so, I find it interesting and quite amazing that those who are unfamiliar with homeschooling have the same types of responses.
Now, I must say, that I have received great support and encouragement along the way. Not everyone responds in utter shock and disbelief and I am glad about that!
Welcome to homeschooling, huh? :)
