So now I find out that all of her public school friends are being super critical of homeschooling, telling her in texts that she will be miserable, that her anxiety will get worse, that she will never want to leave the house, etc. I am so angry that instead of being supportive these kids (with their heads filled with garbage by their parents I am sure!) are being so damaging to her. I know they are worried about not seeing her as often, but we had planned for her to see them as much as possible, plus obviously they talk every day. Have any of you had to deal with this? How did you handle it?
I would like her make some new friends who are also homeschooled, who will be more understanding. Would love to hear from others who have also dealt with these issues.
