I especially love this, “…if you have dared to challenge government schooling or conventional private schooling, I suspect you aren’t normal or especially well-socialized either. Somehow you were impervious to social conditioning enough to think outside the box. You’re probably a little odd too. No offense, but most of the homeschool parents I know are. I include myself among them. We’re deliberate, accidental, or reluctant social misfits who imbue our children with a set of values and beliefs that resist the siren songs of government schooling, pop culture, and social engineering.
Rather than worry that your kids won’t “fit in” or be “well-socialized,” celebrate their deviant behavior! Say it loud, “I’m odd and I’m proud!””
