Good for you for homeschooling. My son is grown but if I had to do it over again, I would homeschool. I am always telling my relatives to get their kids out of public schools! The problem is that people don't want to put in the kind of time it takes to homeschool their children. They might actually have to spend a lot of time with them!
>>They might actually have to spend a lot of time with them!
That is soooo the truth!
I love having my girls with me. It doesn't get better than this.
If you cannot homeschool, do what I did - teach them AFTER school and on weekends!
Bring them to work with you - especially if you are self-employed or work for a small business that knows the worth of educating the kids in REAL life.
Take them to museums, parks, zoos, especially any science and math exhibits - TALK to them and explain EVERYTHING!
It does soak in no matter what the ??? in the NEA attempt to do with their minds.
Both my sons were public schooled - both were told in public school that they were stupid/dumb (sounds like what they say about Bush?) and should drop out - both are now independent, married, very well off and make a heck of a lot more money that even the head of the Katy (TX) ISD makes!

No kidding about the time. As I'm finding out. My wife stayed at home for 10 years so I figured I'd take a turn at it -- boy did I have it easy when I went to an office and sat at a computer or in meetings all day. Homeschooling three boys and dealing with all the activities and taking care of the home... boy did I ever step into it deep.
