I used to be a huge fan of Joy Behar of “The View”. This was in the early days of the show, of course. Since that time, I’ve about lost all respect for her. She’s got to be one of the most ignorant people there is. This is my personal opinion, of course. However, she proves it in a statement made in the clip below. I’m sure you’re wondering what all this has to do with homeschooling. Well, it’s quite simple. In the clip below, Joy makes a comment that “alot of them are demented when they’re homeschooled”. Watch the clip, starting at about 6 minutes. It’s obvious that the woman knows NOTHING about homeschool, but she’s still ignorant enough to make a comment about homeschool children. Not only that, but it’s somewhat 2-faced. Not a minute before, she says they should be educated in the White House with other kids. Just watch for yourself….
Demented?? We’ve had K in public school and private school and I can tell you without a doubt that those kids are much more “demented” than any of the homeschool kids we’ve met. That’s the type of attitude that we often have to deal with though. Things like that are said in total ignorance. The question to Joy is, if our kids are so “demented” then how come we stand a better chance of getting a scholarship than public school kids?? Why to colleges want our children?? And better yet Joy, why are most homeschool kids less judgemental and more intelligent than YOU?? It’s quite clear that at least Elizabeth at least knows what she’s talking about.
She’s not the only one. You’ll find many views just like hers. They don’t matter though because our homeschooled children, MY homeschooled daughter, can speak for themselves. They prove themselves everyday and are often more capable of dealing with that outside world.
Check out some homeschool Success Stories, Successful & Famous People that were Homeschooled, 10 Famous Homeschooled People, Famous Homeschoolers & Homeschool Parents, and the list could go on. I’ll continue to homeschool and risk my daughter being the next one of these people as opposed to another Joy Behar or someone like her!!
