I think this woman really nailed a lot of components of why I want to home school long term. (As in, I am already home schooling right now. I try to keep that in mind each day, because at no point in human development do we learn more quickly than we do as infants and toddlers.) The older I get, the more painfully aware I become of the time limitations we have here in mortality. So, the idea of sending my children off five days a week for nine hours a day, with only some unknown percentage of their day is spent on things that I consider of worth, is a bit distasteful to me.
Anyhow. Don't worry about the social development of my children just yet. Paul's still not on board.
