They have a hard, or even impossible, time finding their niche. Or the fact that they like to memorize things and wish the math assignments were harder.
They must either hide their true personality and inclinations in order to be accepted or they’re pushed to the fringes and made to feel abnormal. Made to feel less likable than those who keep their ideas and opinions to themselves or fail to form any to begin with. No one looks at them askance when they know every answer to every question and are eager to share their knowledge. That their interests are boring and a waste of time?

No, the biggest concern among the concerned was: SOCIALIZATION. In other words: homeschooled kids are annoying and weird, and you don’t want your kids to be annoying and weird, ? Well, if someone tries to tell you that their kids are never annoying, they’re lying to you.
And if someone else tries to tell you that any child of mine isn’t going to be at least a little weird no matter how they’re educated, they’ve lost their minds. Why is this perception of the weirdo homeschooler so pervasive? I mean what people mean when they say that homeschooled kids are annoying.
To add perspective to this, in November 2016 Trump clobbered Clinton with a 28 point margin and a total vote margin of 1.3 million to around 729k for Clinton.
They just don’t know what to with someone who’s so, like, weird. They are not ridiculed into trying to be who God didn’t create them to be. You can’t just go around being annoying all the time. Better they learn now not to stand up for themselves? By the time annoying people like that are older, they’re .
They won’t automatically wonder if people will disagree or make fun of them when they make assertions or cling to ideals. Of course, not every homeschooled kid is like that.
And if those people do disagree or make fun of them they won’t care. Not even every one of the kids who lives in this house is like that.
Why is it that despite the clear academic achievement of most homeschooled students, the fear of them “acting like that one weirdo guy I knew when I was a kid” is enough to turn otherwise supportive folks against the idea? Same parents, same environment, same rules….completely different reactions from their children. I mean kids who ask too many questions and know too much information and like certain stuff and refuse to like other things and don’t care what other people think about their silly hobbies and their know-it-all-ness.
I’ve thought about it a lot and the best explanation I can come up with is this: ridicule. When “annoying” kids like this go to a traditional school, they’re ridiculed. But when one of those “annoying” kids is homeschooled, no one makes fun of their outfits that don’t match.
