    So, what has been the overall response to your homeschooling your kids?
    Mine has been up and down!
    The hardest people to deal with on it has been our families! We have everything from 100% support to totally against is so therefore we ignore it and pretend it doesn’t happen! It makes me sad and angry. My Mom was a schoolteacher for 37 years and she is our biggest supporter. She has been for it since we started. The only issue has been getting her to think outside the box when it comes to teaching them, vs. how she taught for years. My Stepdad has been against it and for it and then against it again. He thinks I am sheltering them too much and that they should experience the things of high school to be able to deal with real life. I cannot make him understand that high school TODAY is not like he remembers back in the 50's. Heck, it isn't even the high school I attended in the late 80's! Hubby's family is totally against it. They(his parents) used to help buy the boys school clothes when they went to public school and they no longer help. That stopped as soon as we became homeschoolers. They do not ask the boys how school is, they do not acknowledge a field trip, etc. It really angers me but after 4+ years, I have learned to let it go and consider the source. Though I do like "poking the bear" so to speak by telling them how the school year is going, how the boys trip somewhere went, etc. ...

    I have had fewer and fewer conversations about DS' schooling. I kept giving vague answers and everyone just stopped asking. We don't spend a lot of time with family, as we live far away.
