• Why does my dad say that I'm an idiot for wanting to homeschool my kids?

    Both my wife and I are traditional Catholics who hold fast to the unchanging Catholic Faith. We attend only the Traditional Latin Mass and are open to however many children God will bless us with (against birth control). We've been married for 6 years and God has blessed my wife and I with 4 kids so far. Our oldest is turning 5 soon and we plan on homeschooling him (as we plan on doing with all of our children). Both of my parents are very concerned with their grandkids because my wife and I want to homeschool all of our kids. My dad calls me an idiot, saying that I'm not a professional teacher and that I'm going to make dummies out of my kids. It hurts when he says these things to me. Though, my wife and I are very aware of what public schools are teaching. We do not want our children subject to Darwinian evolution and sex ed. It's a Godless and atheistic environment. It certainly is a grave danger to our children's souls. Our primary job as parents and to help our children get to heaven. Though, my dad thinks I'm an extremist. Why does my dad say that I'm an idiot for wanting to homeschool my kids?

  • How do unschooled and home schooled teenagers/young adults get into college?

    I mean they wouldn't have high school transcripts, nothing to actually prove they understood and comprehended the information they were taught, unless they did tests, etc which were graded, at least that's the case with homeshooled Unschooled I have NO idea, they are left to their own choices whether or... show more

Seems really unfair to admit a unschooled child to a college, when a high school student seems to have done a LOT more work.

  • How can I convince my parents that I should be homeschooled?

    I'm a big introvert. School stresses me out so much. I always come back from school with a terrible mood every single time. I spend my lunch time in the bathroom (i dont eat in there). Group projects are the death of me. Honestly, I could never be an extrovert. Maybe over a few years, but not now. I tried, but... show more

  • Should I home school or public school my senior year of high school?

    Best answer: I think that public school would be a good thing to experience. But, if we're talking about your final year of high school, then it would probably be too late to make such a radical change to what you are used to. In terms of your academic needs... if you can pass your final year exams, then you have the... show more
    Best answer: I think that public school would be a good thing to experience. But, if we're talking about your final year of high school, then it would probably be too late to make such a radical change to what you are used to.
    In terms of your academic needs... if you can pass your final year exams, then you have the academic abilities. Everyone sits the same exams in the end. In terms of your social skills, well, I can tell you from experience that plenty of people in college are socially awkward, regardless of their schooling background. That may or may not be you too. Public schools may enable you to learn a few things with regard to social skills, but only in the sense that they involve interacting with a wide variety of people, and that is something that you will do sooner or later anyway.
    I went to a private school, and the difference between my school life and my University life was like night and day. When I finished school and started my course (started with Arts History, ended up doing computer science, at first I was just glad to get my foot in the door), 95% of the people that I knew quickly faded away from my life, and I fell in with a new crowd of people that were a better fit with who I was and who I wanted to be (lunatics and comedians in my case). And it was a time that transformed my life in a big way. My best advice is to just be true to yourself. Have a think about who you are, and what matters to you, and what interests you. When school is over, you will get a chance to bring your world more in line with that, whatever that is.
    In terms of your last year, I think you shouldn't shake things up too much, just focus on nailing your subjects. As long as you have confidence in your teachers and their ability to get you ready for the end of school, then that is your primary objective, and however it goes, you will figure out the rest after that.

  • I have the option of staying in homeschool or going back to school. Which one should I do?

    I’m a sophomore in high school. In the first semester I was having problems w anxiety and depression So I left and my parents had me start homeschool. I don’t have a car and I don’t work. I pretty much sit at home and do my hw everyday. I get bored out of my mind and I feel like I’m losing my friends. It sounds cheesy yeah but it hurts me more watching them move on and let go I guess. I kind of want to go back to my public school and my parents both say that I basically have no social life anymore. They want me to go back too. My old public is also building a new school right next to my house and it’d open by the end of summer. It’s quite convenient and it would make sense for me to go back after finishing this semester of homeschool. But I want to be a vet. And I was talking to my teacher about it and she said I could up my classes by making them more advanced. There’s also a vet class I can take and more options of math and sciences I can do that could give me more knowledge abt my career choice. And she said I could get into a university if I take more advanced classes. I’ve read a bunch online that homeschooled kids can’t get into universities but my teachers telling me another thing. So my perspective on homeschool changed. I wouldn’t have the opportunity of taking better classes at a public school tho. So... Part of me wants to stay in homeschool because of this new opportunity and the other part wants to go to the new school that’ll be opening up. Idk what to do...

    My 13 year old cousin doesn’t do school. She used to do homeschool when she was 5-6 but her guardian gave up because of my cousins ocd and quit having her do school. She wants to do school because she wants to be a normal kid and have a stable future but her guardian doesn’t seem to care. She always breaks promises and says she’ll enroll her in school but just doesn’t. This is obviously neglect (she neglects her in other ways too but I won’t get into that) but is this abuse? I’ve asked many people but I’ve gotten mixed responses.

  • Why do adults believe that the school system has not changed over the years?

    For example, adults often say that school now does not have a more difficult curriculum as it did in the late 80's or 90's. Its been over 20 years, hasn't it gotten more difficult?
