Home Spun comic strip #583
In the past, I've always been amazed at the excuses I'm given for not homeschooling. Especially since I wasn't really trying to recruit anyone. I like homeschooling, but I know it's not for everyone. Some days it isn't even for me! And yet, parents at various classes we've attended have felt the need to detach themselves from any thought that they might homeschool. My personal favorite is "I could never spend all day with my kids!"
Honestly, I haven't heard the excuse in today's cartoon more than once or twice in my 12 years of homeschooling, but I was recently reminded of it in a private email exchange. So this week I decided to address the affordability of homeschooling in my own comic.
