Karen, I just went through a terrible ordeal with my 15 year old
daughter. We allowed her to go to public school -- actually she
didn't even want to go at first. I was so burned out that I tried
putting her in just to have time to regroup for the high school
years. It was an arts magnet school and she had all sorts of
problems there, and made all the wrong sorts of friends. I have to
say, looking back on the situation in hindsight that it was her new
environment that was the problem and not our homeschooling. I
am a high school teacher by trade, so I did a fairly decent job with
her academically and she was well prepared for school in that
respect. But the kids there were absolutely 100% immoral. That is
just something a christian homeschooling parent cannot prepare a
child for -- and shouldn't! Who would teach a child "how to fit in in
an immoral environment in 100 easy lessons?" In her intense desire
to fit in in the "real world," she rebelled against us. We took a
drastic step and moved across town to solve the situation. She
doesn't drive yet and cannot stay in touch with these friends. I'm
telling you, the difference in her personality is nothing short of
miraculous. She is back with us and now understands how far she
had drifted -- she could tell by looking at her old myspace page
after several months away from it. You can NOT underestimate the
power of social indoctrination that's at work in your son's life. You
may well have had something to do with your son's disappointment
in his social life and academic achievement. But seriously consider
that his new friends may be the true source of your son's acting
out against you and NOT YOU!
