That's a pretty big assumption. Nonetheless, if it's done well, it does take a lot of time and energy. So, if one intends to homeschool, one had better prepare to be rattled, stumped, flustered, overwhelmed, grilled, and ignored - just like real teachers. The trick is overcoming all that stuff, and actually teaching the kids. Lots of folks can't hack it.<quoted text>It takes alot of time and energy to homeschool so I would assume that the parents aren't "lazy or fsint of heart"..
Teach your kids to defend themselves, and arm them with "Start nothing, finish everything." Then, don't punish them when they stand up for themselves (or their friends) and get suspended as a result of zero tolerance policy.<quoted text>There is alot of bullying happening in schools today(especially middle/junior high HS) and from what I hear, parents have no choice but to take their kids out. I think the schools are not doing enough to address this.
Most schools have that, you know - kids usually learn bullying at home.
Oh, and 'a lot' is two words.
