This statement was made at a recent (August 2011) Homeschool Conference in California by one of the participants in the "Dad's Roundtable Discussion". I don't remember the guys name, and I only had his first name to begin with, but he is Indian (of the Eastern variety, as in from India) and his name was pronounced like a common American name but spelled differently (I think it was Jym or Bhob or something like that). When I approached him later to get the quote more accurately he could not reproduce it, as he had not given that much thought to the words he was speaking at the moment, he was speaking from the heart (the whole point of a roundtable).

The comment was made in the context of many of us homeschoolers are the first generation doing this, and most of us were schooled more "traditionally".
So here goes.

"I think a large part of the problem as far as our being able to accept and/or explain what we are doing (homeschooling) is that most of us have been educated in conventional ways, so we are taking an unconventional path with conventional experience, which makes it obviously difficult."

"I believe that everything happens for a reason, people change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you can appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so that eventually you learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so that better things can fall together!"

-- Marilyn Monroe
