The Ultimate Comeback to Get Rid of Critics Once and For all.

If I believe something to be absolutely, indisputably true, then no matter what anyone else says about it, I am not affected. People can criticize homeschooling all they want. It won’t bother me, it won’t put me on the defensive, it won’t get a rise of emotion out of me because I know that I […]
