Emily Farrar (ameraq) | 133 comments There are so many +s and -s to being homeschooled, I'll write a few, these aren't in order, just how I think of them:
1. I get to spend more time with my family, getting to know them better, and maybe becoming closer to them then some school kids would with their families'.
2. I get more free time to do the stuff I want to, like throwing in some excerises for sports I do, reading, or other stuff similar.
3. It's always fun seeing people's reactions when you say "I don't go to school." Before saying your homeschooled.
4. Being able to attend many things which kids who go to school can't.
5. Having many friends who are both schooled and homeschooled. I have a great many from both areas, and it's fun to bring them together and see how they act together.
6. No pressure to do things like Achohol or smoke.
7. Personal attention.
There are a few others, but my mind has shut-off.
1. Having to explain the whole homeschool thing to school kids who just ask the most annoying questions again and again, like, "Well, if you don't go to school, where do you go?"
2. I personnally have never been to school in my life, and would like to have that experience.
3. No prom. lol. although that could be a plus.
4. Not being aloud to join any school teams. (Thats the law in my state, some do allow it.)
5. Personal Attention
Again with the mind shut-off, if I think of any more I'll write them later!

Kaytrina | 174 comments I think there are a few pluses and a few minuses.
Heres the pluses:
1.I get to pick most of what I learn.
2.I have a tiny bit more free time.[I'm starting curriculum and a bunch of other schoolwork stuff this year,so I wont have as much time.I can still sign up for a few classes,though.]
3.I have friends that are'nt busy.Its so hard to hang out with busy people.My 3 best friends are bored a lot.
4.I don't have to say the pledge of allegiance every morning.[or at all!]
5.I'm a vegan,so it would be hard to eat cafeteria food.
6.I will have no chance of being beat up by school kids[even though I'm a girl,so i don't think that would happen anyways]

Here's the minuses:

1.I'm not allowed to go out by myself quite yet,so I'm stuck on our property almost every day.[only less than half an acre!]
2.I dont see boys as much
3.I dont get to go to the school my neighbor goes to
4.I get sick of my parents

Mikayla | 2658 comments I luv homeschooling. Here's my +s and -s

1. i have a ton more free time.
2. i have a lot of great homeschool friends that i probably wouldn't know otherwise!
3. i get to learn more of what i'm interested in
4. i have NO busy work. if i do the work and i get it, i'm done.
5. i can pick my friends more and not just be friends with whoever happens to be my neighbor
6. where i live there's cool events open to homeschoolers during the school day.
7. i find homeschoolers are for the most part, are pretty openminded and acceptng of people. so it's really easy to just be who you are and not have to shop at certain stores or act a certain way to fit in.

1. a lot of my homeschool friends live like 30 minutes away since all the homeschoolers just live all over.
2. don't see my friends every day
3. and as said before. prom :(
4. can't participate in anything that happens at the school

those are just the ones that happen to be on my mind right now...

Emily Farrar (ameraq) | 133 comments OMG you guys pointed out some I'd totally forgotten about!

hiilovemarkhoppus (brackenclaw) I like homeschooling because;

1. I can travel without having school keeping be in one place
2. I dont have to sit in a classroom for 6 hours

I dont like homeschooling because:
1. No prom
2. homeschooled boys are really shy !! HAHAA
3. there is a limited number of people I hang out with

It's also really annoying when people think you're stupid just because you dont go to public school. Stereo typing homeschooling as something only super religous people do.

Mikayla | 2658 comments sooo Joel, we already know you're content with the homeschool guys, specifically JJ, lol...
but this is all really getting off from the +s and -s of homeschooling....
so what's peoples reason they decided to chose homeschool vs. go to school?

message 11: by Sarahfina (new)

Sarahfina  (sarahfinaforever) | 840 comments um i didn't have a choice...
i really would like to go to school because;

Silver there's actually a prom for one of the homeschooling groups im in, but you have to be 15 years old. there's a dance near christmas this year that you have to be 13 for, and my bff will be 13 by then, so im hoping she'll go with me because I have never been to a dance before. i got asked to one once but both of us got sick.

Haley | 3 comments I love being homeschooled I have never bin to school and I will keep it that way for a long long time lol all I have to say is I love being homeschooled :~)

message 25: by Keanna (new)

Keanna I don't like being home-schooled cuz that means im around my family all the time and I live in an RV so we can travel so i dont even have my own room I rarely meet other home-schoolers except on my school website and even then its a simple hey how ya doing convo and i dont get to meet too many guys either cuz of home-schooling and travelling I prom would be totally cool

what i like about home-schooling is not having to deal with social grps in high schools and i really wouldnt like to sit in a really awful chair all day listening to a teacher who would like to be somewhere else as well most likely

hiilovemarkhoppus (brackenclaw) emily you should make a topic on the group about crushes!
