Homeschool Association for many years. When Devon was 4 everyone was bugging me about early enrollment in Kindergarten. I was quite certain that I did NOT want to enroll her, but not so sure what I wanted to do instead. I started attending WHA meetings. Every other year they usually start the year off with a parent panel of experienced homeschooling parents who tell their stories about why and how they homeschool. The presenter asks some basic questions and then lets the audience ask questions for the "experienced" parents to answer. The first meeting I attended I remember being completely wowed by a Mom of 7 kids! I had 3 small children at the time and I remember thinking that this Mom must just know everything. She must have all the answers, I mean homeschooling 7 kids! I also remember another mom talking about her son not really doing much math and how that was totally fine with her and another set of parents telling how their daughter didn't read until she was 12 but they were alright with that. I was shocked. How could not doing any math for months on end and not reading until 12 years old be alright. Those parents obviously didn't know anything and they certainly weren't up for sainthood like the Mom of 7 kids.
