There are a lot of reasons we homeschool.
Recently we’ve added a new one. After reading about the second grader suspended for chewing his Pop-Tart into a gun shape and the 5 year old girl who made a “terrorist threat” against a classmate and the 6 year old suspended for pointing a finger at a classmate and saying “Pow”, I’m quite convinced we’ve made the right decision.
*In full disclosure the Nerf gun was disarmed and taken apart before spelling and grammar.
**In fuller disclosure it was disarmed because his mother thought it was funny to keep shooting him and his brother if they were goofing off and not doing their work.
**And in the fullest disclosure, the 6 yr old disarmed his mother and took apart the gun, knowing she probably couldn’t figure out how to put it back together again.
