The truth of the matter is, before any child is sent off to school, daycare, head-start or any of these locations outside of the home, they are homeschooled:

Until you put your child in a “head start” program or kindergarten, what had you been doing with them? Many parents of young children will say they are “thinking about” homeschooling, but their child is “only three” so they “haven’t started yet.”

What have they been doing all that time? Haven’t they trained them to walk, to eat, to say “Thank You,” to brush their teeth, to tie their shoes, to chew with their mouths closed, to go potty by themselves, to sleep through the night, to say “Yes, Ma’am” and “Yes, Sir;” to count to ten, to say their ABCs, to pray, to sing, to play pat-a-cake, to finger-paint, to eat Goldfish, to clean up after themselves, etc.?
