Hello Stacey,
I appreciate all you do for your children and can clearly see you care. I would not put myself out there like this if I didn't see a great need to make a difference at my age. Please check out my personal site Life's Ultimate Test for my complete mission. I thank you for being one of the great parents I wish all would be.

Best wishes,
Doris Anne Beaulieu

Please note that I am a homeschooling mom, for non-selfish reasons...selfish for me would have been putting our daughters in school. However, while Doris' message encompasses ALL home schoolers based upon her own secluded, religious upbringing, most home schoolers are not raised this way.

I completely agree that children need to be socialized...and most home schoolers are. If someone decides to home school they should take the extra steps to:

1. Join a home school group and get involved. If there isn't one in your area, start one.

2. Get your children involved in the community.

It has been my experience with over 200 home schoolers locally (and more online) that the parents have to be concerned about over-socialization....not under. We often have group classes, events, park days, play dates, activities and this is just within our home school groups AND we also join sports, arts, and community classes and events as well. Kids need unscheduled time and fortunately, we have a lot of time to work with to provide unscheduled play time for our kids.

Children, who are being "watched" by computers,games, cell phones, and TVs all day are not being taken care of. This is happening to many children whether they are in traditional school or not. It is the parent's responsibility to ensure their children are having non-tech time....and parents should watch their own tech consumption. This is a new issue of our society in general.

My husband and I both work. Not all moms do. That is a choice.

If Doris had not included the entire home schooling community, I could and would support her stance on the way she was raised. NO child should be neglected, ignored, hidden from society, and pushed out at 19 unskilled to clean their own house and unable to work. Unfortunately, this happens to children who are abused....and has nothing to do with homeschooling. My heart goes out to her for all she has been through.

I respectfully disagree with her position.
