Try to convince my mom…?
First, I suggest you think well why and how you plan to be homeschooling.
Second, do some research about how it works in your area, what resources are, etc. You can either put another question here stating where you live, or go to your local school and/or library and ask for information, or even write “homeschooling at…(your area)” in google and do some research.
Third, do a list with the pros and cons to your mom.
And fourth, and maybe the more important one, is to be clear how will be your commitment and you expect your mom’s commitment will be.
Prepare yourself to answer questions from your mom, like these ones:
– How do you think you will manage your “socialization”? Are you prepared to do volunteer, community work or register to groups or clubs in order to communicate with people?
– How are you going to manage your schedule? As homeschooling usially take less hours of your daily life, what are you planning to do when no studying? How about get a job, help around the house, asist to some group activities, etc.?
– Do you expect your mom will supply all the tutoring? Have you ideas of how, where, when and who can manage subjects that may be difficult for your mom, like physics, math or chemistry?
– Are you prepared for your mom response? What if she feels she couldn’t do it? Or that she feels she does not wants you so much time alone at home?
Here is your first homeschool assignment. Go online and read about homeschool. Make notes. Do a search about rules for your state. Look at your options in homeschooling. Read everything you can about homeschooling. Don’t just jump into it without a plan and without a clear idea of what homeschool will be for you. If you go into this without a plan, you will be easily discouraged.
Go back through the Yahoo Answers in this section. You will find many links to resources and encouragement.
The trick is to be very mature and professional about it. Show them you’re responsible and will do the schoolwork on your own, without having to be told to. Do your research on different cyberschools or how you’re going to go about the homeschooling process.
[[ by the way make sure she is in a good mood when you ask!]]
Its like owning a Jack Russell terrier and expecting it to sit and stay all the time (which is near impossible). lol
Are you responsible enough to follow through on homework or expect your mom to teach you? She will need to want to do that as well.
Read up as much as you can about homeschooling before bringing up the subject again then ask your mother what she thinks.
these are a few persuasive things to tell her. gl!
Tell her you want to sit down and talk about it.
Go to hslda and look at their info, that will give you some good starting points.
You want to get scholarships. Public School is a joke. Let Mom know if she can afford to pay $25,000 a year so beat it! You want to learn! Good for you!!! I home school and my son told me he does not want to go back to school. And bless his heart he won’t as long as I am able I will home school.
