    I'm so glad (lucky) that everyone has been so supportive of us homeschooling. Of course we did the whole regular school thing for a lot of years starting with PPCD when DD was 3, and everyone could see that it went from marginally adequate to worse over the years, so maybe they just don't have any delusions about the idea that public school would help anyone. Even SIL who is majorly invested in the whole public school experience (think PTA president, super volunteer kind of mom) has never said anything critical (or at least nothing that got back to me.) LOL.

    That's a shame that your SIL seems to think she has some sort of special insight about what your child needs.

    TXlib, It's worse because they see him once a year. for a few days. And somehow she thinks she can raise my kid better than I can. My sis and my parents, who know him quite well, see how well he's doing in homeschooling. Yes, we have a few struggles, but they also saw how miserable he was (and we were) when he was in pre-k. The judgemental s-i-l has no kids, lives 500 miles away, and has NEVER ONCE visited us. We always have to go visit them. I love non-parents who tell one how to parent.

    On a bright note, we added Pinky and The Brain (tiny white mice) to our family Wednesday and they are so CUTE! Tech wanted white mice, and females were the recommendation, but we still named them Pinky and The Brain. :-)
