Re: The Truth About School and What It Means to Our Society - Homeschool Your Children! Share This!
Thank you for what you said about socialization, I feel the same way. I did well I'm school grade wise but I had to learn stuff on my own. I mean after graduation, I realized I knew nothing of history. And I was bullied, because we were not very well off and my clothes were hand me down. I had a metal tipped dart thrown at me in high school! Looking back, I just "survived ". I don't want that for my kids.

What do you do about the transcript though? I'm sire its in some of the links I've been given here but I haven't had time to read them yet.

Also, one big issue I know I am going to have - hubby had a teacher for am uncle. Any suggestions on how to answer other family members who think they know what's best for your child?

You are right though - the kids are THE most important thing we have. I keep saying we need to really fight to make sure he has the right kind of world to grow up in. He deserves his freedoms - the ones we are being stripped of at an alarming pace!

Please forgive any typos - editing is a real pain on my phone, and its late and I'm super tired! Ill look for this tomorrow but can only really read or reply if baby is napping!



Stupid evil mom.

I want to homeschool. My husband is dead set against it. I have a few years,so I'm in the process of doing research to back up my feelings on the matter. He's stuck on the socializing the kids thing. All our neighbors have kids our kids age, so I don't know why the child has to go to school to be socialized?

If anyone has any talking points on why homeschooling is more beneficial, I'd appreciate reading them. I'm trying to keep the discussion logical, not emotional.

Socializing isn't a problem unless you are a lazy parent (tell your husband that) and don't want to spend the time to involve your children in activities like sports, clubs, boy/girlscouts, etc.

School is actually a HORRIBLE environment for socializing, have you been there in the last 10-15 years? It isn't like the "old days" that my parents and grandparents talk about. Public School system for the most part breeds commonism and animalism toward eachother. Look at the clicks, if you don't fall into one, you either become the nerd with that "1 friend" who won't even stand behind you when shit hits the fan, wind up socially fucked up, and hating your parents cause they used the public school system as a babysitter, OR you wind up pulling a columbine when you decide you can't take it anymore. Kids are fuckin horrible to eachother at school, it's cause there is too many of them.

Restore education to what it was supposed to be. The books have been scrubbed to dumb down our children. They don't want you to think individually, it is bad for the system.

Read www.ronpaulcurriculum.com front page and see that there are MANY homeschool families where the kids goto college by age 13, because it is THAT much more advanced.

Goodluck, I wish everyone the best who wants to homeschool, don't let your children be programmed by common core and the evil department of education! Our, and America's futures lie with them!!! They are the most important thing in the world right now! Teach them constitution, liberty, the values and principles of freedom, make them memorize the bill of rights and constitution etc etc

To be honest, I would tell your husband that it's no one's business but you and his. That isn't the kind of subject that is anyone else's business, especially his uncle. If they have opinions they'll have to keep them to themselves, and I'd explain that to your husband. Grab him by the balls and tell him you are gonna do what you think is best for your babies whether he likes it or not :)

But yeah, let him know how much the kids will thank him! I hated public schools and still have animosity towards my parents for putting me through it.

When I got out of school, my self esteem went up 1000%

Public Schools tend to create low self esteem. I mean, unless you are in the main group, you always feel like an outsider. Not to mention, if you aren't excelling at the same pace as others, teachers are good at making you feel like an asshole who isn't listening to them. (When infact, they just fucking suck at teaching because all they do is hand out packets and homework and sit on there fat asses grading the shit during class while you all work on a handout packet that she'll grade tomorrow during class while you work on some other fuckin handout).

Not to mention the bullying. Kids are so awful to eachother, I don't want my kids to have to go through it. You can't learn when everyday you goto school, you worry about who's going to be picking on you by lunchtime.
