Not so New York

Hi, I'm not homeschooling my little girl but have only just started, and I'm a stay at home mom to a baby boy as well. In NYC I haven't met anyone who supports the idea of homeschooling and I feel so judged! I'm wondering if people get that everywhere or if anyone else has felt like that with other strong minded New Yorkers?

I am in NY too just upstate, and trust me its everywhere.

I have had all the judgmental comments, now after 3 (this is my 4th year) years of homeschooling I use to get snarky comments from my neighbors or some "friends" and now they say "Oh I wish I could homeschool". I have had several friends of friends message me about homeschooling. My brother now homeschools and my sister was going to but her daughter wanted to be a cheerleader and couldnt homeschooling.

But eventually the people who know you homeschool will either go with it and stop with the correcting of your child or you just stop associating with them and find new friends who are more supportive. :D

Good luck with homeschooling, it is actually very rewarding!
