The following is a guest post written by Melissa Camara Wilkins of melissacamarawilkins.com.
When our first daughter was born, we knew we were not going to homeschool.
We knew some homeschooled kids. Those kids were weird.
Two things that didn’t occur to us back then:
1. There are a lot of homeschooled kids out there. We knew two who were weird. That might not have been a representative sample.
2. We are also weird. It’s not such a bad thing.
It didn’t take us long to realize that choosing an educational philosophy based on trying to avoid making weird kids was not actually the best plan.
