Thanks for posting that blog it is great...it came at a great time for me too......I have quite a few friends that are the type that only talk about how great things are and act virtually perfect.....I am the type that love to share the good and the bad and always feel akward sharing the bad because they never do........so then it gets hard to NOT compare........I am always wondering what people think and comparing and when I am around people that are always better,doing right,never messing up or just bragging constantly I can't help but to second guess everything I do.........But I have been turning a lot to my bible on this and realised that I was looking to these ladies for accpetance and confirmation that everything I was doing was right or good enough and totally skipping over the most important person that I need to have acceptance from and that is God! He knows my heart, He knows how my days are filled,He knows my family and what is best for it.....So I have been practicing every day how to turn to God for guidence and acceptance on what is best for me and my family rather then these ladies........However like she said to find the ones that are open and honest about who they are even their faults and I have been blessed to find a few and they are wonderful mentors and offer great advice and wisdomand share past mistakes and how they got through it and are such an answer to prayers..........
Ok I totally hijacked this post!sorry!!!LOL
I haven't started homeschooling yet...im waiting for the yr to be over...you have definately given great advice...especially for someone who is new and hasn't started. thanks so much for your wisdom!!!
I really liked her blog. There are tons of things that a person has to opt out of. The one thing that she did not seem to touch on is that some kids get sucked into the I'm not socialized enough stuff. I was amazed when joined any online you ask people answer type thing and more often then not the HS are wondering about if X companies a diploma mill, how much is a good price for tutors, ex. I think it really doesn't help that some states require a curriculum outline.
I think here does a really good job at supporting but then I'm the type that's like crap this isn't working what next. It's family that stress saying he's at X when he's suppose to be at Z or why is he doing that. I'll freely admit that I think HS is easier for us then PS is just the stupid hoops.
