The Benefit of Homeschooling

When your child is answering the question "Can you swim in a lake?", and answers no, teachers in the public school system would mark this wrong.

Here though, the logic of the child far outweighs the supposedly "right" answer.

No you can't swim in a lake. There might be crocodiles in it!!!

I figured her answer worked for me.

I know Jacob does this with his Explode the Code. I know he can read it. So when he answers "Yes" to "Is it fun to have ants in your socks?" I just laugh and move on? Maybe it is fun - how would I know??
