@FASA_Andrew_1879 Oh gosh yes. Familiar territory.
@aredridel you're a historian? I get excited when I meet another historian!
@FASA_Andrew_1879 As much as an obsessive and critical reader of social history can be without it being a specific field of study, quite.
@aredridel And an unschooler! We unschooled all three of our children - the youngest is 19 now - after middle child went into first grade and the school turned out to be a Very Bad Idea.
@FASA_Andrew_1879 Oh wow, nice!
It was such a good upbringing. Wasn't perfect for all of my peers, but a great number of us really did exceptionally because of it.
@aredridel One size doesn't fit all, but we realized that we couldn't possibly do a worse job than the public school system where we were living, and we might do better. Getting involved in a secular unschooling group turned out to be an excellent decision, did wonders for socialization for our Asperger's youngest.
@FASA_Andrew_1879 Oh GOSH yes. Pretty sure there's nothing better than a band of misfits for people who socialize weirdly.
