PLEASE NOTE: The Reality TV World Message Boards are filled with desperate attention-seekers pretending to be one big happy PG/PG13-rated family. Don't be fooled. Trying to get everyone to agree with you is like herding cats, but intolerance for other viewpoints is NOT welcome and respect for other posters IS required at all times. Jump in and play, and you'll soon find out how easy it is to fit in, but save your drama for your mama. All members are encouraged to read the complete guidelines. As entertainment critic Roger Ebert once said, "If you disagree with something I write, tell me so, argue with me, correct me--but don't tell me to shut up. That's not the American way."

60. "RE: Wife Swap Episode 11/10/04"

Just as a word of encourgement, I was homeschooled from the age of 13. Before that I had spent time at both public and private schools. My parents decided to homeschool me do to my obvious frustration at dealing with schoolwork even in advanced classes not fulfilling me. On the opposite note, my sister was homeschooled because her style of learning was not utilized much in the classroom. I am thankful every day for that decision. We had sleepovers at least once a week, visited nursing homes, went shopping, took babysitting jobs, took outside classes for arts and sports etc. Never once did I asked to go back to school. I would have begged not to. I am proud to say that I flew through college with no problem as did my sister and brother. We were already disciplined to making the time to study which many freshman find hard. Also we had spent hours researching areas that interested us which the textbooks only hinted at. Many homeschoolers do. Research is a big part of college.
On the other hand, my husband whose IQ is out there will tell you quite firmly that school only encouraged laziness in him. They could never challenge him enough no matter what class. School was play to him. When things finally got a little difficult (he actually had to do a little work) when he was going for his doctorate. He hated it. He had never had the opportunity to be challenged before. Now, he is a hard worker, but he never had to work hard to learn before. He insists that we homeschool our son who is much like him. He wants him challenged from the beginning. I am glad to do it.

The thing is there are homeschool families out there that do give us a bad name. Also there are homeschool families who think you are terrible to not homeschool your kids. Which is just ridiculous? Bless their hearts, I know some moms who would not even know how to begin.

I do not think that it was the homeschooling that offended some people so much as some of the rules. I agree I prefered the military family. But I will admit some of their rules made me roll my eyes. Good luck as you homeschool.
