I pulled in the driveway from gym class, and my children started piling out. They had been playing hard for nearly two hours with a group of 60 kids. I was tired. They were not. A few neighbor kids rushed into the yard, and the playing continued.
As I turned to get the baby out of his car seat, I saw my elderly neighbor walking down the sidewalk. After a few minutes of chit chat, he said something about where my children went to school. When I mentioned they were homeschooled, he was very disturbed. He began a lecture about how children need other children and how they just are not socialized well at home. I hid a smile as I thought about how my children had interacted with other kids more in 2 hours that I ever did in a whole day of conventional school.

As I've said before, if my children behave less than perfectly, don't blame it on home schooling and I won't blame your child's behavior on government schooling. We can all just chalk it up to them having less than perfect parents! :D
