Anybody who was homeschooled in a religious home can agree, it is VERY different from family to family.  The Joneses let their kids play with Ghostbuster toys....the Robinsons watch the Simpsons...the Higgins let their daughters wear pants to church while the Williamses all wear dresses.

 

Growing up in a religious home that did not allow TV and actively sheltered me made my life VERY interesting growing up.  I dealt with suicidal thoughts when I was sixteen and had a lot of problems before then as well that were never dealt with beyond talking to a pastor.  I was lonely and frustrated and had a lot of questions about the world that would have to wait to be answered.  It was horrific and I hated it.  Sometimes the Stockholm syndrome kind of got the best of me and I thought the moments that were not horrible were actually moments to be grateful for.  Anybody else have a similar experience ?
