    It Was The Best And Worst Thing I Ever Did

    I was home schooled since the 3rd grade. It all started because I had horrible anxiety. I was convinced I was going to die if I went to school. I was terrified of everything, everyone, everywhere. Scared to do something wrong so I just didn't want to do anything at all. My social...

    Conflicted Feelings About This

    I was unschooled all my life, until I started taking college courses (first community college, then university). I pretty much hated it. I was lonely and awkward, and trapped in a family with way too intense and enmeshed a dynamic (my mother "stayed home with the kids,"...

    Not The Best Few Years Of My Life.

    When I was 11 my deeply religious mother decided that schools were horrible evil place where they teach children awful lies such as, that homosexuality is okay (I don't share these beliefs). So she decided I should be home schooled. The only very slight tiny problem with this was...

    Back to It Again

    Well, I was home schooled for the most part from pre-school to halfway through the sixth grade. I am grateful to my mother for teaching me how to read and write. Thanks to her, I was reading The Desire Of Ages by the time I was four and a half. I grew up with a love for learning...

    I Was Homeschooled

       I am really glad to find this website. I didn't know there was a group out here like this. I was in public school until third grade. Then I was homeschooled until I took my G.E.D. at 15 and eventually I moved  out of my parents house when I was 16 and moved...

    The Source

    I was home-schooled from the age of eight. At the time my parents were into what I like to call the "uber-christian" lifestyle. My mother didn't want me or my sister to go to public school and be "corrupted." So she began to home-school me and my sister. At...

    So I've seen loads about this

    and thought I'd write about my experience with home schooling. When I was home-schooled, I had been taken out of my previous school because it was rubbish, basically. We never learnt anything and as I am quite academically able, I needed to be challenged. I am also a very...

    Being home schooled has advantages

    and disadvantages. In my opinion, being home schooled out weighs going to public school. My mother was my mentor and a great teacher. She was not a pervert when discussing sexual relationships. She covered all required courses and its material professionally. I graduated...

    For a While

    For all of my preschool years and kindergarten, my mother home-schooled myself and my sister. This is what gave me an head start in school, honestly. My mother doesn't believe on staying on the norm of things. So, she really taught us beyond our grade-level! :-o So, by the time...
