You might want to add me to that list. I’ve been homeschooled my entire life. I’m now a Sophomore in High School and I love it to death. It works extremely well with my work schedule too because I wake up around six, take a shower, do school till I finish around noon, then if I have work, I go there for 1! Many people say that homeschoolers have issues with socializing. Some do, not all of them, not even most of them. It all depends on how you raise your child. For example, I’m in a local homeschool group, I go to a local meeting place every week where we have P.E. and where I can socialize. Also, I play sports in a recreational league. I play against a lot of private schooled people. I actually have two close friends from one of the teams I play against. So, you can’t really say I’m bad at socializing, it’s the exact opposite of that. I’m pretty good at it.
Anyway, homeschooling can be tough sometimes, I’ve been told I’m on a more rigorous schedule then most public/private school kids. There have also been studies on the grades of public schoolers versus homeschoolers and we homeschoolers actually have a greater percentile in grades. It sounds weird, but I believe I am receiving an amazing education, and I’m ever so grateful for it. This is my life, and I love it. This is my life, and I’ll live it. This is my life, and this is the way I want it to be.
I absolutely love being a homeschooler.
