WTF!? I'm really disturbed by the replies. He`s not poor, he`s lucky, he won the spelling bee and he is probably very smart, and will get a high-paying job when he grows up. Personally, I would love to be that kid. The problem with you people is that you`re so manic about socializing, as if it`s the only thing in the world. I strongly believe that it is better to be smart than socialized. Homeschooling is much better than the public school system, which is in a horrible state right now. Homeschooling allows you to learn at your own pace, not at a pace preselected by the government. What you are saying basically is "Letting your child learn and grow up to get a high-paying job is child abuse, let`s instead throw them in a facility with bullies, drug addicts, that will make them hate learning for the rest of their life and be stupid, since that is not child abuse at all".. idiots.
