How do you make sure your children have enough social contact outside their own family?
not a question but a thumbs up. I am doing the same now and the interaction is being handled the same way. The knowledge and skill has far outweighed the social aspect
Don't you think they're missing out on the socialization that "regular" school can provide for them?
I know home schooling has its benefits .. but I think kids need to experience being in school to prepare them for the real world.
Being sheltered is going to put them at a distinct disadvantage when they have to integrate themselves into college or the work force.
I hope you're right.
Do your kids like it .. or do they wish they could go to regular school? That's a good barometer of if this is OK too. :)
Why? And what are your qualifications???
I am aware that most parents can home school... and that is the problem. My experiences with home schooled kids is that they are generally poorly educated. They blindly follow the word of their parents and that they are ill equipped to function in the real world and deal with other people.
Do you home-school your children because you and your spouse are faculty members at a college or university and you have the teaching skills and experience to be able to provide a superior education at home, or are you one of those right-wing Bible Thumping morons who keeps your kid cooped up at home so you can fill their heads with right-wing propaganda and keep them away from minorities?
Based on your answers to the other questions it appears you have your head on right. Are you part of that group in Orange and Duchess counties that's associated with the Buddhists?
Who determines their curriculum?
What is a co-op?
What is a classical education?
Define open-minded thinking?
Gratias tibi for your detailed answers... Where are you located?
Where you ever a teacher once in your life?

How do you feel about public schools? And private schools?
