I have very high standards for my kids. I expect them to be clean, polite, well-fed, friendly, and respectful, among other things. But nowhere do my standards rise to such lofty heights as they do with the education of my children. Because we school at home, I have the luxury of expecting so much more from my son and daughter than I would if they were still working under the low bar set by the public school system. Sometimes my kids get a little frustrated that I make them do assignments two or three times. Like I said, my standards are high. But are they too high?/Idaho Dad, A Family Runs Through It.

Question: Did your parents have high standards for you? Do/did you have high standards for your own children? How were the standards passed along in your household?
