I've always had that situation. Here are the types of responses I have given. Note that I try to keep God out of the conversation, so my children don't blame Him :o)

1. A parent has to do the very best they know how for their children. When you have children, you will have to make those decisions, but for now it is my responsibility.

2. If you work hard during the hours your friends are in school, then you can be free to spend time with them during all of the hours they aren't in school.

3. During school hours, there are many opportunities for you to do fun stuff with other kids. I'm willing to sign you up for a co-op class, a book club, a drama group, and/or a phy ed activity. We can make this fun while still learning lots.

4. I'm willing to host a friend at our house to do science labs or cooking projects with you every week. Dad is willing to have weekly game nights at our house.

5. We want you to have opportunities that are better than group schools. You could graduate early if you really want to, or graduate later if you want to take more time. We can arrange a mentor, a community college course, a business, a home-designed course, learning through movies & orchestra concerts, and more. Let us know what your interests are!

6. We are committed to homeschooling as the best way to raise our children, and this is not negotiable. Love mom.
