I would love to hear the most memorable comments you have received or heard about homeschooling! Here are some of my faves:
1. You homeschool your four children? Oh – you don’t work! Can you help me clean out my garage on Tuesday and maintain my website? (Some of the particulars have been amended to protect the identities of several of my now better-informed friends!)
2. (After meeting my high school daughters):
Acquaintance, warmly: Your daughters are so pleasant and well-rounded! Where do they go to school?
Me: Oh, they’re homeschooled.
Acquaintance, much more coldly: I would never do that to my daughter! I wouldn’t want her to be a social misfit.
