I find it so interesting. Whenever I talk to kids who attend traditional school and they find out that we homeschool, they always say that they wished they were homeschooled. It seems as though the stereotypes about homeschooling actually come from the adults, not the students!
I met a 17 year old girl the other day. She is a typical teen, cute as can be, texting cell phone in hand, has plenty of friends at school, and attends a large public school. She's not sure what she wants to "be" when she grows up. Actually, she changes her thoughts on that quite often, but she did mention that she would like to be homeschooled. How strange, I thought... Unfortunately, she is in a circumstance that would make it very difficult to be homeschooled. At 17, for me, it would have been WONDERFUL to have been homeschooled!
Tell your kids that they are BLESSED!
