They just don’t know what to with someone who’s so, like, weird. They are not ridiculed into trying to be who God didn’t create them to be. You can’t just go around being annoying all the time. Better they learn now not to stand up for themselves? By the time annoying people like that are older, they’re .
And if those people do disagree or make fun of them they won’t care. Not even every one of the kids who lives in this house is like that.
But no one asks the “normal” kids and adults if they were homeschooled. Because they’re so, you know, But the homeschooled kids who are like that, who are “annoying” are so different, so confident, so willing to allow themselves to be something that the majority of society has labeled as weird, that people can’t help but paint all homeschooled families with the weirdo brush.
They didn’t wonder how my kids would know how to be quiet when they were supposed to or to wait in lines when they have to. Learnin’, schmlearning- those kids need to be among herds of other kids their exact age in order to learn how to be normal.
No, the biggest concern among the concerned was: SOCIALIZATION. In other words: homeschooled kids are annoying and weird, and you don’t want your kids to be annoying and weird, ? Well, if someone tries to tell you that their kids are never annoying, they’re lying to you.
And if someone else tries to tell you that any child of mine isn’t going to be at least a little weird no matter how they’re educated, they’ve lost their minds. Why is this perception of the weirdo homeschooler so pervasive? I mean what people mean when they say that homeschooled kids are annoying.
Why is it that despite the clear academic achievement of most homeschooled students, the fear of them “acting like that one weirdo guy I knew when I was a kid” is enough to turn otherwise supportive folks against the idea? Same parents, same environment, same rules….completely different reactions from their children. I mean kids who ask too many questions and know too much information and like certain stuff and refuse to like other things and don’t care what other people think about their silly hobbies and their know-it-all-ness.In our neutered domestic companions, hormonal causes may be absent, but territorial behavior still exists.Thus, when introducing new rabbits, territory must be considered and used to your advantage.Many thought we were already homeschooling, in fact.What surprised me most though is that folks who concerned about the prudence of such a decision weren’t worried that my children might not learn enough or the the right things.Taking the time, reading up, and waiting for two spayed or neutered rabbits to be introduced will ensure you the best possible chance at a loving, bonded relationship. In wild rabbits, territorial behavior includes depositing marking pellets at the boundaries of the territory, chinning, urinating, and aggressive behavior such as digging, circling, and fighting.
