I'm homeschooled and I think a lot of the readers here are too. So, I wanted to write this guide on what to say when somebody pulls out a homeschooling myth.
1. "Do you ever get to meet any other kids?"
My first instinct is to snap back " What's a kid?" because I'm sick and tired of being asked this. Since that would be really rude, I instead say: " Yes, I have lots of friends and I get together with other homeschoolers....." This one you really need to cater to your situation.
2. " Do you actually learn anything?"
This is my personal favorite. It's so weird what some people think about homeschoolers. What I said to that was," Yes, I do a lot of work. I went to public school for a few years, but ever since I stared homeschooling , I feel like I've learned a lot more".
Don't you just love when you first tell people you're homeschooled? How their expression changes from a real smile to a forced one? It takes all my strength not to burst out laughing.
