18 Reasons Why Doctors and Lawyers Homeschool Their Children

I’m going public today with a secret I’ve kept for a year—my husband and I are homeschooling our children. I never dreamed we would become homeschoolers. I wanted my kids integrated and socialized. I wanted their eyes opened to the realities of the world. I wanted the values we taught at home put to the test in the real world. But necessity drove me to consider homeschooling for my 2nd and 4th graders, and so I timidly attended a home school parent meeting last spring.

Uh...because they can afford

Uh...because they can afford to...

She says that a doctor's salary does not allow them to send them to private school? Horse. Shit. She must be a crappy doctor or be one of these hedonist swinger socialites who requires fancy things around her at all times. It sounds like she works and the husband stays home. They also don't spank their kids. Yeah, those kids are going to grow up to be outstanding people. Might as well have just sent them to public school since she did say that they don't home school for reasons of morality.

I think she said they don't spank to enforce schooling....

Anyway, I didn't agree with her on this--spanking is necessary sometimes if you want to raise good children. But, your comment about financially affording it was way off base. I am very poor, but I homeschool because it's worth every sacrifice I have to make. My children's souls are priceless!

Medical school debt is now quarter to half a million dollars

Some doctors do not make much money per hour. A lot do, but many do not.

Also I got spanked maybe 5 times as a child that I remember. I doubt it made much of a difference.

apparently 5 times

was all you needed.
see? it does work.

Who takes out loans to go to

Who takes out loans to go to medical school? When have you ever seen a doctor or lawyer not driving some expensive luxury car? The rich are always bitching about how hard it is. I really don't get these people who are making like $80k+ a year and why they still have 30 year mortgages. Idiotic. Just live like shit in an apartment for a few years and then go buy a house with cash.

Awesome list that I agree with a great deal.
