As a person, yes. But for his policies, not really.
My family can attest for that. We always get such compliments.
That's basically what he said. When you can't do it, you can't do it.
Takhisis was just trying to soften the blow.
Probably not, I don't have nearly the patience my parents did but anythings possible.
Also, there's definitely the option of marrying and not having kids
I don't like Ron Paul. I don't like any of the texans, Mormons, or women who are running. I'd vote for Santorum.
Really? I don't like the women or Mormons (No offense to women or Mormons in general) but what's wrong with the Texans?
If Ron Paul drops out, then I support Herman Cain, I like Paul a lot.
I'd reluctantly go with Perry in that scenario.
But, let's not make this "Listen to homeschoolers and former homeschoolers discuss a political candidate which the threadstarter doesn't give a crap about
Back on topic
Not his whole "champion of homeschooling"?
Huh? Could you please explain?

I hope I can add another voice to this discussion. I was homeschooled from the very start all the way through high school age. I graduated high school at the age of 16, and am currently up for graduating with my bachelor's degree next year before my 21st birthday.
This is key. Parental involvement is the single greatest indicator of a child's success academically, whether they are public schooled, homeschooled, or an alternative.
In my elementary years I made most of my friends and socialized mostly through church, Boy Scouts, and other similar groups. I was relatively introverted as a child, but when I started college I became very extroverted. I think a lot of homeschoolers may have trouble making friends with their peers simply because they "live in another world" from other kids. Many of them appear very "grown-up" for their age and that makes it harder for them to fit in. This isn't simple social awkwardness, but just a difficulty connecting with people from a whole new world of experiences. I know that was a major obstacle for me when I was a teenager.
I am actually majoring in education and hope to teach public school. Perhaps my children will be in my classroom someday! Though, I wouldn't mind becoming a family man and staying at home to raise my children should the opportunity arise.
I had a conservative Christian upbringing as well, but I have great respect for other cultures and religions. I love drawing a diverse circle of people with whom I can talk and share about experiences and beliefs. Part of being a life-long learner.
