Homeschooling = Socially Retarded?

An Anonymous Commenter mentioned socially harming my kids because one of our initial reasons for homeschooling was bullying, which homeschooling will apparently make this worse… 


While I appreciate your concern for our reasons as to why we want to homeschool, upon much more soul searching it has developed into much deeper reasons. He isn’t enjoying school, he isn’t learning as much as he can/wants and its the right choice for our family right now. That all being said socially the kids will be attending a full day of school one day a week, a nature group one morning a week, a general homeschool group another day a week and a gym program one day a week. Not to mention gymnastics, t-ball, football and soccer. We will only be homeschooling through 3rd grade or so. I didn’t get into the teasing aspect too much in the post because its more than teasing, more like physical violence that was not properly addressed. I am sorry if you dont agree with our parenting choices, over the summer (already started) we will homeschool and we will continue, if it goes well, into the school year. PS I graduated from High School homeschooling- socially I am more scarred from elementary bullying than my homeschooling time.
