Default Re: What are some of your reasons to HS?

I hadn't really known much about homeschooling until a friend talked to me about it. I read Home Grown Kids and other books about homeschooling and it made sense. We talked about teaching our daughter at home. She was past 3 yrs when I called that friend to let her know that "our" midwife had passed away. She said "Oh, Sara died. I gotta go, I'm in school." My reaction, not spoken, was that if that is what homeschooling make you do to your friends, I don't want to do it. My daughter went to a good quality Christian school for K-5 and 1st grade. K-5 was okay but 1st grade was torture for me. My happy little girl was gone all day, came home grouchy, and had a LOT of homework. We kept her home the next year so we could enjoy her. We have homeschooled ever since and I agree with the reasons listed above. I really don't feel comfortable enough to get involved with the public schools.
