One in Three Children Unhappy Most of the Time

Have just separately run the gist of this article by the two home educated young people here and have received a rather astonished stare on both occasions.

When I asked if they felt happy/unhappy most of the time, they looked at me as if I needed my head sorted..."sure...HAPPY."

How different is that from my own miserable (schooled) teen years!

I had two home-ed children look at my with confusion. One said it's a lie, it has to be a lie. The other said WTF? I remember being unhappy. Really unhappy. I am so glad that Simon and Linnaea, my two, don't feel that way.

And very heartwarming that they should just look at you like you're a bit nuts for even asking. You're doing something right! :o)
