As I have stated before, this is our first year home schooling. Our schools don't start until September 7th, so I have touched on a few things here and there but, we haven't officially started. I have a couple of problems we are dealing with. I am just not used to people being so incredibly bold. The first one is, I had a neighbor of mine who was over having coffee with me. Extremely loud and in front of my kids she asks me "I just want you to tell me where you received your education to be able to home school your children" At the same time I was dealing with a situation with the television and my kids. So, I didn't answer her at first. One because I was thinking to myself, is she for real? Secondly, I was hoping this confrontation would just go away. But, she persisting saying Christine I asked you a question and I want a answer! Really??? Secondly, my sister in law is extremely judgmental of my family. She is a school teacher and of course she knows everything there is to know about schooling. My mother keeps saying to me, "What are you going to do when she finds out you are home schooling?" She is going to go nuts. We only truly have contact around the holidays. How do I approach this without ruining a family holiday. I will have a lot to say! But, I need to remember the amount of contact I allow my family to have with her. She also can be extremely brazen just like my neighbor. Any helpful suggestions would be great!!!!!
