Oppressive, Dysfunction-Creating Homeschooling

When Gary North is on, he’s on.

“Can you imagine what this girl will face when she hits her teens?

Have home schooling parents no shame?”

Juxtaposed with videos of a family having a great time playing music together, the irony is delicious. The myths about the “dangers” of homeschooling continue to crumble in the face of facts.

    So enjoyable to watch. The type of family situation I wish we could all have. Imagine, family members actually interested in each other, enjoying each other’s company. Growing up straight, strong, and bursting with confidence. A parent’s dream come true. Music is like magic . . . once you make it yourself for the first time, the magic is with you always.

    My friends have six children that they home schooled so well that after grade 8 they had fluency in French and German and some Latin. They had taken English lessons at times with friends ( numbering 12 as I taught some weeks this way) and they went to swimming and soccer for socializing regularly. They all play at least three instruments and three of them did so very well at High School that they went onto universities with scholarships. The youngest are now at Walkerville Collegiate for the Arts ( as the others were) and are active in games and drama besides getting great marks. they are all achievers. I wish I had not been a teacher so I could have had a better influence on our children,
