Not necessarily my personal opinions, but homeschoolers' opinions, in general, about socialization in public schools, which was the point at the time, yes.
In one of your ealier posts, you stated: "I do think the whole socialization issue is no more valid in home schooling than it is in Public or Private school. I do think people worry too much about it."
I don't worry about it, but I believe the concerns most homeschooling parents have against socialization in public school are quite valid. Even so, I was willing to explore an opposing opinion, which you seemed to have.
It is not wrong whether you ask me questions or not, I simply noted that you did not. It is not an attack, it is simply a fact. If you had been interested in my opinions, being that I have not really revealed much about them, I believe that you would have asked by now.
What you don't know about me is that I have very few expectations of people. I learned a long time ago that people do not emotionally hurt other people, but what really causes us to be hurt is our own expectations that we place on people, which they often don't even know about, and often on people we do not even know.
With that in mind, I do recognize that you expected something of me, I am not sure what exactly, but it is rather apparent to me that I most definitely did not fulfill that expectation. From the main focus of your posts, I suspect that you expected me to make you feel like you "fit in" and because I did not comply with that expectation you felt hurt even though I did treat you with respect and did not intentionally try to upset you. Even so, I am very sorry that you are upset.
