Every so often, I bring y’all some humor courtesy of the Google keyword searches that lead people to my site. Here’s another dose of funny questions about homeschooling.
For the record, lest someone accuse me of being snarky, I do realize that some of these are legitimate questions that just struck me as funny. Because I’m weird. And, I like to laugh. Y’all already knew that about me, didn’t you?
1. I’m so tired of hearing about homeschooling. Here’s a tip: Don’t read homeschool blogs.
2. Are homeschooled kids weird? Seriously. Every single time I look at my keyword searches. I think it’s been well-established that homeschooling parents have to work hard if they want to produce really weird homeschooled kids.
3. Do I need to teach my 6th grader for homeschooling? Yes. If you’re going to homeschool, you really should teach your kids. It’s kind of important.
4. Do homeschoolers get sick days? Only when they’re sick. When that happens, try these tips for homeschool sick days. And, if they’re trying to call in sick, but they’re really not, you may all need a mental health day.
5. Homeschooled kids didn’t learn to skip. Um, okay. This is a problem? If it is, try this how to skip tutorial. Seriously, there is a YouTube video for everything.
6. How do you tell people you homeschool? Okay, are you ready? Here goes. We homeschool. It’s really that simple. I mean, I get that it can be difficult if you’ve got relatives and friends who are hostile about homeschooling. That’s when you offer to pass the bean dip or see if you can adapt some of these tips for dealing with math-quizzing relatives during the holidays for year round use.
7. How to have a crush if you’re homeschooled. I checked with Megan, my 14-year-old, on this because she has had plenty of crushes. She said as long as you don’t have a crush on your homeschool classmates (a.k.a. your siblings), you should be fine.
8. Moody preteen and homeschool. I’m not sure what, exactly, this person was trying to find, but I just had to say, whoever you are, I feel your pain. I have so been there. My kids would probably say that same thing about the search phrase moody mom and homeschool, though, so I guess we’re even.
9. What do homeschoolers need? A little love. Some understanding. A nap would be nice. And, sweet tea. Lots of sweet tea.
10. How does a homeschooling mom have free time? Graduate your kids. Just kidding. Mostly.
