To the woman he said,
"I will greatly increase your pains in childbearing;
Out of the mouths of babes:
Me at the end of my rope over some idiotic thing my beautiful, wonderful, homeschooled kids had done: "WHY didn't you two use some common SENSE?!?"
Very gifted 11-year-old: "Since when do us kids have any common sense?!?"
Boy, did that take me down a peg or two!
The difference homeschooling makes is not that you get perfect kids. It's that you get kids who have a realistic view of the world because they've experienced more in one homeschool year than many experience in ten. They've had mentors, and they've met (and may even be friends with) many people from all walks of life. Naturally, they know their place in the universe, and are secure with who and what they are. And, what's really scary, is they know their parents' place too, and will gleefully remind them at every opportunity! :-)
