Ok, this is a funny story for those home-schoolers with "well meaning" relatives.
Throughout our home-schooling years, my brother and his family made it quite clear that they thought we were doing harm to our kids by not sending them to government schools. They took every opportunity to point out how wonderful (they thought) public school was, and how much (they thought) our kids were missing out. It was so bad, I think if they'd had it their way, they would have reported us and forced us to send our kids to public school. In fact, I'm not certain that they didn't try, but fortunately, our locals had no interest in doing such a thing. So many years have gone by now, and we both have grandchildren. I laughed so hard yesterday when I found out that his oldest has decided to home-school his kids!!!! I can only imagine my brother's reaction!!
