Well after reading the thread about the twin singers, differing ideas of homeschooling came up... JonMikal and I have discussed possibly home schooling our boys but we are indecisive. We like the idea of teaching the kids at home for "safety" reasons but don't want them to feel sheltered either. We have read up on the fact that a lot of schools allow home-schooled children to still participate in extra-curricular activities and even interact with children during physical education and things like that. But, then, we also feel the children should be around other authority figures than just ourselves - since they won't be answering to us in the job force, etc. And we think it's important that the kids hear many different perspectives on things so they can come up with their own thoughts. I think we are leaning more towards sending them to public school, but we're still toying with the idea of home-schooling. Anyway, I just wanted to get ya'lls opinion on this, especially those who have been home-schooled or are currently home-schooling their kids.
