Re: “High speed texter not very excited

I agree that the dependence on technology now days is atrocious. I was applauding you all the way up to the point you reduce homeschoolers to unsocialized neanderthals incapable of appropriate social interaction. I home school my children and I for one can tell you that the manners and etiquette of most homeschooled children are far superior to their public/private schooled peers. Just because a family schools at home does not mean that they never leave home. A common misconception from those who are ignorant about the way most homeschoolers are educated. Homeschoolers actually have more time to socialize and to interact with the public than their peers. Why? Because most parents/homeschool teachers value volunteering and giving back to the community in which they live and therefore make it part of their curriculum. Also there is a large homeschool community in which to exchange or co-op different subjects and activities. Most people who homeschool tend to raise their children in traditional ways lacking much of the intrusion of electronics. No we do not allow our children to be technologically ignorant but we do control the amount of exposure. Technology is not used to babysit the children like so many other population demographics allow. I completely agree that the current generations' dependence on tech is destroying our humanity and fueling narcissism at an epidemic rate. However, to degrade a way of life without knowing that lifestyle is completely out of line and further fuels prejudice against said lifestyle.
