My mom is considering home-schooling me. Is anyone else home-schooled, if so is it fun!?

I personally always wanted to be home-schooled, to see how it felt like. Sorry if I can't help you on that part. ^_^;

But anyway, why are you going to be home-schooled? o_o;

Because I'm a stragith A student and because of that I get picked on ALL THE TIME at my current school.

Did you consult the school counselor/principal/teacher? Getting picked on because of perfect grades isn't too uncommon; perhaps the issue could be settled another way. If not, then well...I s'pose I really have no say in this otherwise and will have to respect your parent's decision. ^_^;

You get insulted for being smart? Do you live in a poor town? I used to live in one, they got rid of buses the year after I left. Thankfully, I only went to school there until I was in kindergarten. I was never insulted, mostly because I was in kindergarten and wasn't too smart. Also, I can't relate to you now either, since I usually get Bs or Cs. And how do they pick on you? Verbally or physically?

Just see someone about it then, try to have your classes changed so that you don't have to see them during the day. Last I checked, home school does cost a good bit of money. Andy would know more though. <_<

I don't like homeschooling at all. Middle school and high school is 10% about the education and 90% about the social experience and learning to work well with others. I've known some people that were homeschooled that just freak out at everything in the real world because they were so sheltered...

Ugh, I would hate to be homeschooled...

Well the usually just call me names and such. But see its different because I go to a Private School that costs $13,000 per kid. (no joke and I seriuous). Anyway, all my friends are either on AIM, on here, or outside of school so... lol. Anyway my bestfreind used to be homeschooled and she loved it so...well yeah. But thanks for you input anyway

Just pick on them because they're dumb. >.<


On a more serious note, I probably wouldn't go to the extremity of home-schooling. Something like that could be easily settled in the office or something.

Oh Jorge, you must be forgetting about little old me. I am homeschooled for reasons I cannot disclose in public. I have been homeschooled since 7th grade, and I believe that it is not for everyone. In the program I am in it is very expensive and very difficult. The fact the teachers are on DVD's helps a great deal, but it is still dificult. I was a average student when I left school and I am an above average one now.

The program I am in is very expensive, but cheaper than nice private schools.

The reasons I left regular school were far worse than the reasons you desire to leave. If this issue is more than a problem you can bare, then you need to think about it and discuss the pros and cons with your parents and counselors.

Like I said earlier homeschooling is not for everyone. It is a big step to make. You are leaving daily interaction, and going into daily seclusion. There is nothing wrong with being alone. Trust me. I enjoy being away from the problems of school. My life has only gotten better since I left public school. I actually do have more friends now than I did then.

I am not going to hassle you over your religious stands, but I will tell you now this is a decision I would strongly pray about if you are Christian.

If you need any help on making this decision or need some suggestions, PM me. My door is always open.

Yeah, I agree with The Hunk. It's not for everyone, and you should really think about what you're getting into. I was home schooled 2nd through 5th grade, but then I went back into Public because my mother didn't think that I was getting enough social interaction, because I had almost no friends and remained quiet most of the time. Now, I have a lot of friends and talk a /ton/ more, but I have to deal with the pressures of every day like and everything that comes with attending public. Like the above said, pray about it ^^

I'm also home-schooled, and I have to agree with The Hunk about how it isn't for everyone. I started right after 3rd grade and I still love it, but I couldn't say that you would, especially since you would be starting at a much older age than I did. There are a lot of pros and cons that you have to take into consideration, because if you don't and you end up deciding to do it then you might feel like you made a big mistake. (Although it's not like it'd be impossible to go back to public school... But just to save you some trouble I'll explain some things!)

First of all, you would really have to love your family because you would be spending all of your days with them, not your friends at school. I'd imagine it'd be a hard adjustment, unless you don't have many there. And on the other hand, it could also prove to be a relief to be at home if you wanted to get away from any teasing that the other students may do.

I think that it is so much easier to learn when you're homeschooled--The environment is a lot less stressful than when you're in public school. You're able to focus more on your work than what you wear and things like that. It's great and worry-free!

And the costs of it depends on a lot of things... If you order a ton of books then it can be expensive, but in most cases it's very manageable. It's probably not much more, if at all, more expensive than going through a year of public school.

So, overall, it's different for every person. You might love it or you might be miserable... It just depends on the kind of person you are and what your situations in real life are like. I'll happily recommend it for everyone, though, because I think it's great! And, as long as you stay friends with people from your public school, as well as always being open to make new ones, you'll never feel lonely.

And to comment on what John Denver said--I have to admit that I've been really sheltered my entire life, but I'm actually very thankful for that because I haven't been exposed to all of the peer pressure that a lot of public school kids have. I've been raised as a Christian and I have a very strong faith in God, so I'm not a total basket case when I have to face reality sometimes. In fact, I think that I handle situations like that a lot better than other girls my age simply because, thanks to being so influenced by caring people in my family rather than a bunch of wild teenagers, I've developed very strong morals and integrity.

Also, I actually do have many good friends and a real life. Some people think that homeschoolers are at such a disadvantage because they don't get enough social experience with other people, but from experience I can tell you that's not true. Maybe in some cases, but not most of the time. We probably interact with more people that public school kids just because we're not stuck in a building (with a limited amount of people) 7 hours a day for 5 days a week. Our schedules are a lot more flexible, and my mom really takes advantage of this. We're able to go anywhere, any time that we want without having to worry about angry teachers or whatever we would have left behind at school. It's not like we goof off all of the time, either--We definitely don't! We're all just more relaxed about it.

Anyway... I'm tired of typing! Hope that helped at least one person! ^_^

I just remember someone that had been homeschooled all their life, one day went to see a movie with some friends. He was so appawled at the movie, he ran to his parents crying at what he had saw. I don't think anyone from public school woulda had the same reaction O_o

...and it's certainly been a long time since I last saw you. They must've demodded you forever ago.

Well i'm close with all my family except my brother, but hes in college so that doesn't really count. I never really had that many friends and I enjoy the chunks of alone time I get at school. Thanks for your input! Also, some of you said go to the office and all, well I did that in 5th grade, I'm in 7th now. Nothing has changed so I can't rely on the school officals for much and its a private school, so that says bad things. I've noticed that people there call me either "Geek, Nerd, Mathmetician, or Scientist" if i answer a question in class, or prove them wrong about any little detail about the most pointless things (for example, in english class one of the meanest of them said I wonder what would happen if you put glue stick in a pencil sharpener, I said "First, it wouldn't fit, second, it would get smaller third, it would get the inside of the sharpener sticky. isn't that obvious?" they started making fun of me after that. But what WAS funny was when the English teacher heard them and told them "Either you two don't have enough brainpower or you don't have enough willpower to make the brainpower you don't have to be nice to other people." and they were quiet after that)

Very well said! =3

Ya know people, not ALL homeschoolers are socially inept and reclusive. In fact, my best friend and her cousins where both home-schooled, and they're perfectly fine.

It has it's ups and downs, from what I've seen. On the positive side, you don't have the peer pressure that you get in real school, and the education is more focused on you as one person, rather then a whole class or unit at one time.

It's not that bad, seriously! And there is such thing as inexpensive home-schooling.


I just remember someone that had been homeschooled all their life, one day went to see a movie with some friends. He was so appawled at the movie, he ran to his parents crying at what he had saw. I don't think anyone from public school woulda had the same reaction O_o

Yeah.. I agree that a public school student probably wouldn't have reacted that way. But it depends on how a parent deals with homeschooling their children. If they shelter their kids and pretend the world is a pony-party, that's what'll happen.

...and it's certainly been a long time since I last saw you. They must've demodded you forever ago.I think Chuchino gave a good answer to that one. Parents, whether they homeschool their kids or not, should be the ones to instill good morals and integrity into them when they're younger so that they'll be able to handle situations like that in a better way. My mom seems to be giving me a life lesson about something every time that I turn around, and even though I have to admit that it does bug me a little sometimes, I appreciate the fact that she does because during times that I do have problems I always remember what she's taught me. It's helped a lot.

Also, (One more thing and I'll shut up...) I could say something about some kids that I've seen who go to public school. Most of them come off as pretty emotionally unstable to me, much like that homeschooled guy did to you. They can be so sensitive and dramatic, or have so many issues due to all of the teasing and peer pressure that they have to face from the other kids that they go to school with. A lot of them resort to self-destructive habits--or worse--and can't seem to get along with anyone.

But anyway, I know, it has been a while! Since I resigned around May of last year, I haven't been quite as active as I used to be, but I still come on to throw in my two cents in a random thread every now and then. XD So watch out!

Well i'm close with all my family except my brother, but hes in college so that doesn't really count. I never really had that many friends and I enjoy the chunks of alone time I get at school. Thanks for your input!Sure! It sounds to me like you might be a good canditate for homeschooling, but that's just my opinion. I don't think that it would hurt to atleast try it out and see...

And thanks, Chuchino! ^_^

I don't like homeschooling at all.
Ugh, I would hate to be homeschooled... Hush you. XD


I've been homeschooled since the 1st grade. I'll just give the pros and cons for me.

Pros:
Teaching myself ~ I got everything on CD (on my computer) so I more or less teach myself. I never liked it when someone was watching every single thing I did. So since I got everything on CD it's been way better off. The computer does 99% of the grading of my work. And mine has movies (like if I'm learning about the history of the Great Wall of China it'll show some things about it and so on), and clips and so on. Now, that's just me. Some offers books or CDs, and your parents might want to work with you on the school things (like I said, I don't like someone watching me so I told them I'd do better by myself).

Time ~ I get up at 10 pm, almost every day. I'm sure all of you are going "That's not healthy", well who cares XD. I get up at 10 and then start on my school, now at a normal school (public or private) you can't do that. You can't stay up till 2-3 am (again not healthy, even more so if I'm cought on that late XD). Another thing is, you can't just take off for the week for a vacation. If your mom is going to the store and you want to go to pick up something or whatever then you can go too.

Picked on ~ This never happened to me when I was in kindergarten (I did go to public school for kindergarten). But for me I was put away from the rest of the class, the teachers wanted to put me on some meds because I talked too much and I wanted to play too much. I was a kid, what kid at that age doesn't want to play? But like you said, you're getting picked on at school. That won't happen to you if you're homeschooled. No one to pick on you, no one to make fun of you, no one to put you down and so on.

Cons:
Friends ~ I guess about the only con I can think of is friends and socializing with others. I always say you never make many friends being homeschooled (seeing how you never meet anyone new). Now I'm not sure how it is around there, but around here they have homeschooling groups. Where other families that homeschool their kids have get togethers and so on. I was apart of one of them but they got kind of boring.



The school curriculums (the books/CDs) price will vary. If you decide you want to be schooled at home then you and your parents need to look at different schooling companies that does the homeschooling stuff. You can't just go down to the local store and pick up a book and say "there's the schooling book". The one I get my stuff from has prices like $200-400 dollars (I'm not 100% sure because I don't get into all the ordering) for my 5 subjects. The whole thing should be thought about really good before being done, switching from public school to homeschool won't be something that comes easy. It'll take some getting used to if you go with it.

Ugh, I would hate to be homeschooled...

That is how most home-schooled children I have encountered have dealt with things, also.

In my junior year of high school, a boy who was homeschooled went back to public school. He questioned everything--why are some students allowed to wear such and such...it was horrifying how bad he was picked on, but I admit, his lack of knowledge on how the real world outside of his house was quite annoying. No one likes being told their parents are stupid becaues they allow them to be out past 11:00 at night. heh.

I myself have never been homeschooled, but I think if you're allowed to see how the world works, and not live in a completely sheltered environment, you'd do just fine.

It's too bad I never could be homeschooled.
I support it tooth and nail though—WHEN IT'S GOOD 'N' UNDERREGULATED. Mandated testing, evaluations, and submittal to state and federal governments for approval are not an example of freedom that homeschoolers enjoy. Same goes for the nationwide push to expand compulsory school age to as low as 3 to as late as 21.

Mandatory testing, evaluations, and state approval goes for ANY kind of education. Preschool, high school, home-schooling, you name it. Why should home-schooling children be allowed what they want, while public and private schooled children get these "harsh restrictions?"I'm not for state-wide tests, but if you want to play that route, then you'd need to be against any school in America. Is that your stance, or is your stance "Washington sucks?" Because I can't differentiate between the two with you.

Mandatory pre-schooling is a totally different thang altogether. And what are these "family rights" when it comes to schooling? In America, until you are 16 years old, you are required education. Any "family" that is that ignorant and doesn't realize that probably shouldn't have had a child in the first place.

I've been home-schooled for about 2 years now, i've been off school for about 4 years so it was kind of alot of weight of my shoulders to start getting taught again, im not a huge fan of it, I wish I could be at school, but I can't because of health issues, I guess thats why its not so good - when you want to be at school but have to be home-schooled, its different if you have a choice. I get annoyed when people say how much they want to be home-schooled, its not good, nice or fun at all. You have nobody to talk to apart from the tutor who just wants you to get on with the work, you can't mess around, you have to JUST do the work, yeah you can't get detention and the one on one teaching makes you learn more, but the whole thing feels somwhat like a punishment. Thats just how I feel..but..meh.

Read paragraphs 9 through 11 on third link. And don't come back to me with Air America talking points or NEA propaganda.

GAWD, I get so sick and GD tired of people who think our country was founded on public education.

And I'm going to really piss if you come back with ephiets like "bigot", "homophobe", "fascist", "Nazi", "anti-American scumbag", "racist", and "Klansman"

Those links are complete and utter crap, meant to brainwash ultra-liberal 16-year-old girls like yourself. If you are unhappy with the way the U.S. school systems are, do something more about it then complaining on a pokemon website. And no one said this country was founded on a freaking school system. Just where do you and your "trustworthy" websites get that from? I could have sworn our country was founded for other reasons...

You are in dire need of this skill called "Critical thinking." Or, thinking without bias.

You also are in dire need of attention, it seems, by adding "omg don't call me this, that, this name, that name, etc." While there are some names I can think of that would fit you, none of those are it. Your arguments need some fine tuning...you ought to work on that.

I didn't click the links, cause I don't really care...

But I do know that you're taking this too seriously, as you do in every thread I see you in, and you might want to calm down.
