TW and I were at the Fall Art Festival, minding our own business, wandering in and out of the booths when suddenly we heard it. A woman said "Oh I hope she doesn’t decide to homeschool her."
My ears perked up, I turned around and looked.
The woman she was speakng to said "Oh I agree! That’s one child who could use some socialization."
I growled, maybe even out loud. I glared. TW said "They need some fast times." Heh.
What in the heck is wrong with people? Why do they assume that homeschool kids aren’t socializing with other kids? Why do they assume the only place a child can get some socialization is in school? When did we even start worrying about socializing children?
If there’s a woman in Gainesville, Florida thinking about homeschooling her daughter I sure hope she isn’t listening to these two busy bodies who obviously know nothing about homeschooling. Socialization, sheesh. I think that is the last thing I would take into consideration when making the decision to homeschool.
