Just this week...
Someone, a repeat (childless!) offender, insinuated that my wife and I weren't emphasizing *multilingualism* in our homeschooling.
Then, a couple days later, another in-chimer told me I should bring my kids to his neighborhood in Harlem so my kids could *experience diversity*.
AND just yesterday my father calls up, asks what we were doing on that *nice, warm day* and interjected before I could even answer, "I HOPE YOU ARE TAKING IT EASY ON THOSE KIDS....AND LETTING THEM GO OUTSIDE."
Of course my father specializes in *taking it easy* so he was simply projecting his priorities - as the others were.
And, not for anything, but there's hardly any *intellectual diversity* in Harlem or anywhere else in NYC.
I am indeed always looking for new educational ideas and perspectives....but this week I couldn't help but be reminded of Will Durant's zinger:
"Wherever men do things, other men will arise who will explain to them how things should be done."
As always, y'all can see how *messed up* our kids are at their blogs (see the right-hand margin) and at HomeschoolDad.com.
