I'm Michelle. I've been home-educating since 1995 (!!) after making every excuse I could think of to NOT do it. My first went to kindergarten and lost all of the "three Rs" that she had before she went. She began reversing letters and refused to read anymore because her teacher had told her it made the other kids feel bad. My poor kind-hearted daughter could not even think about doing something that made others feel bad. So she stopped. I complained a little more about not sending them to the "experts," then gave in. I have eleven children now--the youngest is seven--and one granddaughter. Six are graduated. I'm still in the thick of homeschooling and have a few more years to go.
