It's been quite a while since anyone challenged my children or myself over the topic of homeschooling but it happened tonight. Worse yet I was not even there to protect my little guy from what turns out to be a misunderstanding but all the same got me really riled up and still has Greg upset.
In the early days of homeschooling I was pretty accustomed to defending our choice to homeschool but it's honestly been years since I have had to do much but raise an eyebrow when someone started to verbally malign homeschooling as a whole based on the actions of one or two stupid people out there.
I guess I am out of fighting shape since tonight when my 9 year old came home to say that he was quizzed at length by somone we know I was just sad. When there was something he( my son) did not know ( what the Pentagon was) the person quizzing then condemed homeschoolers in what he thought was a joking way. But then went right on qizzing and making my little guy feel awful even though he knew and could answer most of the other questions this person peppered him with.
p.s. I am sorry if this is awash with typos.. Blogger seems to be on a partial vacation and we all know I am a sucky typist.
