Don't let anyone sway you one way or the other - only you know what's best for your children, so have the confidence to do that. Everyone has opinions, some of them founded on knowledge/experience and some of them not (reading these posts, it's really easy to tell which is which).

As for me, I'm a licensed middle/high school math and computer science teacher as well as and a retired military officer - and I'm going to home-school my kids rather than put them into the system. When our twins (1 boy, 1 girl) are 7 (they're 3 now) we're going to be full-timing with them for at least 2 years; 1 year doing the Great Loop (America's Great Loop Cruisers' Association) on our 40' boat, and 1 year out West in an RV (hoping to convert a Skoolie in the meantime).

We've been told we're crazy, that our kids won't be able to adapt to the "regimented" schedules in the real world, will lack social skills, won't have diversity in their education ... blah, blah, blah. We've also been told that the kids will be better adjusted, have better social skills, will have fantastic experiences and adventures that far exceed what most kids get ... blah, blah, blah. Point is, none of us have a crystal ball when it comes to how we raise our kids, so if you have a dream for them - do it. Just take the time to really know your kids, and every decision you make will be the right one.

Have to get off my soapbox now - getting a nosebleed from the altitude. Ciao'

kids are safer on a school bus than in a school.

Cool, thanks for sharing this.
