I know my mother has shared the same issue with me. Though I have to say that recently when my extended family when to my mother and wanted to know if I was 'ever' going to put Dinky (age 11) back in public school, she stood up for our choice to home school. She asked them what grade did they think I should put her in, since she was taking writing from CTY/JHU on a Junior level, Science from a college class, and studying algebra in preperation to take the SAT next year. I think for once she took pride in shutting her sisters up. We had been polite about where Dinky was compared to all the sweet smart cousins. Maybe mom should post here too!
