Re: You're an ASSHOLE if you're not considering homeschooling at this point.
I homeschool my kids. I don't understand the purpose of bringing children into this world only to turn around and let someone else take care of them day after day, all day, out of sight. I am the mother, it is my job to teach and raise my children to make sure they are safe and successful. The children are our future...people really want to leave that to a bunch of strangers?

Today, more than ever, I am thankful that I have the opportunity to stay home and raise my kids and homeschool them.

I also believe that there are so many misconceptions about homeschooled kids. It is far superior to public school. My kids are 4 and 5 and already on subtraction in math and my 5 year old is reading and my 4 year old is on his way to reading. They are beyond Kansas State Standards for Kindergarten but the public school here would not even allow my daughter to start Kindergarten until she is 6 years old because of her birthday. THey are also well socialized. School is not meant to be for making friends and who wants friends like that anyway? (the kinds of kids in school today!)

I agree.

It amazes me parents let their kids walk to school, sometimes a few hundred yards, alone, around traffic... or walk to a bus stop.

I would never let my kid leave my sight.
 Quoting: Super Bowl Dave


While I do send my kids to public school, I live in an all-white community, so I feel it's pretty safe. Even still, I don't let my kids walk or even ride the bus. I or my wife drop them off and pick them up every single day. And we don't let them play outside out of our sight either. They don't have the run of the neighborhood the way some kids we see do. I can't imagine letting them just ride off in the sunset to report back in a few hours. Even though that's how it was when I was a kid.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 723599


wtf.. all white community? And that makes you fill safe? I live on a Indian reservation to stay Away from People like you. And im home schooling my kid. The books they teach our kids are all lies.. And my heart goes out to the Parents that are going home tonight without there babys. Like my people that died at Wounded Knee Massacre. From Who? White People that hate on all other colors. Hummm Good Luck on that safe White Community, when shit hits the fan...

Re: You're an ASSHOLE if you're not considering homeschooling at this point.
Although I agree as to your reasoning, is anybody thinking of long term implications? If you think about it, we're going to have a generation who will be so socially fucked up that that alone might breed killing machines.


We are losing our social skills ever since electronic communications crept into our lives.
We're teaching children not even to touch another (germs). There's hardly anymore eye contact because they're too busy fussin' with their iPhones while walking, jogging, shopping, sunbathing, driving or waiting for a bus.


So what will happen if we restrict this generation from interacting with one another during their formative years by keeping them home? We're going to have a generation of human robots.

I don't profess to know the answer but I can see the future ramifications and the future is looking more and more frightening with each passing day though.

Children deserve a good education, a safe place to receive that education, they deserve a teacher's full attention and assistance, they deserve to learn math and science and art and music and philosophy, they deserve the right to think for themselves with balanced and proper guidance, they deserve the right to be treated as a real person and not just a number in a public school sheeple setting . . . they can make their own decisions about socialization when they are grown.

Sorry I can't agree with this. I wouldn't home school my kiddies. They need to be around kids their own age and be able to play and have fun and make friends.

Homeschooled kids miss out on the most memorable things that Public Schools have to offer.

-Bullying
-Popularity & Status Segregation
-Racial Segregation
-All the Stereotyping that goes on in Public Schools
 Quoting: TheMainFrame



Here are some other wonderful things they miss:

Peer pressure
Smoking
Drinking
Drugs
Promiscuous behaviors
Filthy language
Diseases (more brought in now by illegals' kids)
Teachers with criminal history
Teachers with promiscuous and reckless personal lives
Lack of one-to-one academic attention
Being subjected to state-mandated testing
Being a sheeple

Re: You're an ASSHOLE if you're not considering homeschooling at this point.
Very true. If Americans had just pulled their kids en-mass out of public schools after the supreme court banned God in 1962 we'd be in a lot better shape now.

[link to www.jesus-is-savior.com]

Unfortunately the churches were asleep at the wheel. Astoundingly they didn't see the danger, even though the lie of public education, as a good way to indoctrinate their children into the American way, was exposed.

Even now pastors just don't get it. They want to 'evangelize' their communities but ignore the total loss of young people to secular education. The Muslims understand this. They are militant in the establishment of muslim schools. Christian pastors in America are too soft and complacent.

So true. My husband works as a residential trash truck driver and is also a FT engineering student. I cherish my role as a homemaker. One income is hard sometimes but budgeting is the key. We live debt free, cars are paid off, live without all the luxuries most people do, and we live in a paid off nice mobile home. Have I fantasized about going back to work full time to move into a nice big house, or drive a newer car, sure BUT it is not worth it to me to give up homeschooling my kids. Besides, my husband would NEVER get the hang of the house work or budget. Ha ha. We have very defined male/female roles in our house and I wish more families would return to those old-fashioned values.
