is any one home schooled or was home schooled at one time?
Homeschool is what you make of it. There are some who use homeschool as an excuse to be lazy or fill someones head with hateful and useless things, but that is not the MAJORITY. There are people who claim that the Parents who homeschool either A) are trying to shield their child(ren) from the real world B) are religious fanatics C) are lazy and support truancy D) so rich that they can buy whatever curriculum they want.
Truth be told–only about 15% fall into one of those above catagories. Most parents just want the best possible education with the least amount of drama. Most families sacrifice the luxury of having 2 incomes and the parent who stops working is the parent who controls the majority of the learning process, while at the same time learning to stretch the almighty dollar to make sure that EVERYTHING is paid for (this is even harder to do when you have multiple children at different grade levels). So you have a choice, pay $300-500 for that wonderful little program that will only last ONE child for ONE year or find a cheaper better program that will last longer and cover more children and use the extra money for things like say FOOD.
I am one of those parents who gave up my career and put my life on hold and while we may not be Rich in the pocketbook—I feel that I am the RICHEST person there is because my little girl is the Banker and she is the greatest thing I could ever invest in.
I’d definitely say that if you don’t like going to school, try Alpha and Omega’s SOS program. (It is a Christian-based program, BTW. But it’s still good.)
i was homeschooled all my life, from K1 to grade 12. it has been 4 years since my graduation and i’m at work right now 😀 truthfully homeschooling has been loads of fun–so fun that i have numerous wonderful memories that i will keep with me for life!!! i know a lot of families who homeschool too and my siblings are also homeschooled/are still homeschooling. i studied under A Beka and if you want to homeschool, i’ld suggest using it–it’s DVD based and includes textbooks and curriculums.
anyway, i don’t know whether you’re interested or whether you just need to know that you aren’t the only one doing homeschool, but i assure you that if you’re happy with where you are and what you’re doing, you’ll stay that way 😀 and i hope you stay happy and don’t worry too much, k? good luck 🙂
My 9 year old loves it and never wants to go back to public school! She likes being able to follow her interests and wrap her schooling around those interests.
Id be going into my junior year
Homeschooling is fun if you do it right, you get freedom to pursue whatever really interests you and there are no bounds.
AND THINK, I MY SUMMER NEVER ENDS! LOL
