A shoulder shrug. A bored or irritated expression. So the asker wonders, "hmm I guess they don;t like their parents. They would probably be better off with other parents. If they had other parents these kids would answer, 'We love our parents!! It's great and so much better than having other parents'
Or maybe the inquisition begins with, "So how do you like life?" Again my kids stare off wonder about this odd question and get bored and want to leave this place where people ask strange questions and make them feel "on the spot"
Well my kids aren't asked those exact questions but they are sometimes asked, "So how do you like homeschooling?"
Of course it would be great if my kids gushed on about how great it is and how we go to so many museums, and have so much free time for playing and they learn at their own pace but sometimes mommy rushes the pace but we understand b/c we are well adjusted (more so than you school types) and incredibly bright for our age.
..but they don't.
My kids stumble on that question everytime and I see the wheels turning in the askers head. "AHA!" they think. These kids would rather be in school"
My kids have never been to school so the question "how do you like homeschooling?" requires a comparison my kids can not make.
They would prefer not to be interviewed about ths homeschool stuff and would rather go on not feeling different. They feel like regular kids and do not know why people are so hung up on this subject.
