- Do you give homework? It's all "home"work.
- What do you do when they get detention?
Hmmmm...let's see. Just how would I go about having my students stay after school?
- Do you do school in your pajamas? And the popular variation, Do you do school in your underwear?
(The variation was usually posed to my then-teenage son by other teenage males. Tired of this question, Ryan would sometimes "forget" to tell people that he was homeschooled.)
Although the temptation is there to stand with mouth agape, or even to fall on the floor in a heap of laughter, I usually just smile and answer the question as if it makes perfect sense. Mostly because, before I was a homeschooler myself, I had a few
silly uninformed interesting questions of my own.
Fellow home educators, have you ever been asked a
silly uninformed interesting question?
