I like the title of this post because it makes me laugh every time. I've seen many cars around Columbus with this as a bumper sticker and I know inside that car is some very socialized little people. I know those kids are exposed to all sorts of children; vegans, hippies, atheists, Christians, two moms, two dads, etc. If I wasn't weird about sticking things on my car...that bumper sticker would be a permanent attachment.
Is there a chance my kids won't experience a prom, a homecoming, mean lunch ladies or lockers? Sure. Do those have to be the experiences that make a life fulfilled? Just because those are our memories of childhood, do they have to be THE memories of every childhood? Perhaps the memories we create for our children will be just as great.
I leave you with this. I recently saw a post from a homeschooled teenager. http://yes-i-can-write.blogspot.com/2010/08/myth-of-social-awkwardness-among.html
This post made me smile.
