Ten Reasons Parents Send Their Kids to School

Here are ten reasons that I think parents send their kids to school:
  1. Both parents are working and there's no-one home to homeschool.
  2. Parents want to be adults again and they can't wait for their kids to go off to school - they've not mastered the art of errands with kids in tow.
  3. Kids need something more to do and parents think that it's school.
  4. They don't know how to homeschool and don't think it's an option.
  5. Kids need friends and parents think school is the best place to get them.
  6. They think you need endless patience to homeschool.
  7. School and teachers are thought to be the experts and will do a better job than they could.
  8. Kids will do things for teachers that they would not do for their parents - they want someone else involved in disciplining their kids.
  9. Everyone else is doing it.
  10. It's a right of passage? They did it themselves so their kids must do it too.
