How do you deal with other kids when they say...

That they wish they were homeschooled?

Many of my kids' friends go to school and are at my house a lot. All of them have said at one time or another that they wish they could be homeschooled. I usually just try to change the subject. What do you say?

    I usually say that it is fun but that it doesn't work out for every family.

    I usually just chuckle and move the conversation on.

    I usually laugh and tell them they don't want me as a teacher and then change the conversation.

    I would tell them to talk to their parents and in the mean time just make the best of every situation. I would have loved to be homeschooled if I had different parents. It is not right for everyone.

    I just tell them that's really between their parents and them.

    I have told a couple kids that a lot of it is fun but it is still work.  My kids still have lots of classes that they don't get to see and that it is not for every family.

    I let them know it's not all fun and games, and there is a load of work they don't see.

    I'd probably change the subject too or say something kind of neutral like "everything has it's plusses and minuses." They might be assuming it's all fun and games. Also, clearly many parents would not be cut out for it or enjoy it in the least.

    Same here. Hell I would have loved to be unschooled,lol. 

    Quoting jen2150: I would tell them to talk to their parents and in the mean time just make the best of every situation. I would have loved to be homeschooled if I had different parents. It is not right for everyone.

    "It's pretty fun to homeschool. I bet you have fun at your school too, though!"

    Change subject. Rinse and repeat as needed. I'm well aware, intimately aware, that no one type of education works for every family.
