Why Homeschooling Stresses You Out and Why it Totally Shouldn’t (Education is Not Hard)

Several hundred years ago, Galileo was not only the laughing stock of mainstream society, he was tortured and imprisoned (for the duration of his life) because he believed that the sun was the center of the solar system.
