Subject:         I regret homeschooling my son

I do not know how long ago I have posted on this forum, but I feel I just had to talk to someone. I cannot talk to friends about this as I do not have many and those I do have do not like or tolerate homeschooling. My son is seventeen and will be 18 in April. He has informed me that he wished he had never been homeschooled. He is kind to me sometimes and at other times arrogant and rude. When he is in these arrogant and rude moods he tells me very hurtful things like I has a bad and selfish mother for homeschooling him. He says he is a member of a message board with other former homeschoolers, many of whom hate their parents because homeschooling has made them social outcasts. He using swear words at me as well and tells me other stuff that really hurts me inside. He is my only child, his little sister died when he was six. I feel now a terrible burden of guilt, he locks himself in his room for hours and refuses to complete assignments. His father works long hours and when he comes home it is just to eat and sleep. He cannot be bothered with the problems, and when he is bothered with them, he says he is not the one that raised him, I did so I am responsible for his behavior. I sometimes read on this forum of the many homeschoolers that graduated and how they moved on to college, I do not see that happening to my son. I spend a lot of time worrying over him. I know he is now handing out with a wrong crowd and be boasts that when he turns 18 I will have absolutely no say in what he does. Did I deserve this? Was I wrong to homeschool him? Have I ruined him for life by homeschooling him? Please help me.
