Your kids ARE more important than you are

It's an Andrea original, feel free to quote me.

It sits on my Facebok page right now, awaiting backlash, but it is only getting likes.  That's good.  But I didn't mean for it to be a crunchy feeling thing, I meant for it to be provocative.

I was thinking about someone in particular when it came to my mind.  Someone close to me hinted that I move their kid (across the country) in with me and have me homeschool them this year.  I didn't think

Don't listen to the misinformed

So I received a phone call from a new homeschoolers who was told that if she handn't already filed her homeschooling forms that she could be arrested.

That is the kind if misinformation and alarmist reactions that scare people away from homeschooling. I gave her the correct information she needed, but I made a video to vent.

The moral of the story is, don't let random educators (who are not intimately aware of homeschooling) to give you homeschooling advice. Chances are they will be wrong.

My guess is this person got their information from the fact that a local homeschooling mom was arrested last year for educational neglect. They had been "homeschooling" for years and had not filed any paperwork or done any testing. (If I remember correctly, there were some other illegal things going in the house too).

So please, don't let peopel scare you... check with a homeschooling expert
