To be honest, I think it’s a great decision. If your situation allows it, I don’t see why you shouldn’t take the shot. I actually grew up homeschooled, all of my life. I’ve struggled with depression and anxiety since I was little, and homeschooling made life a lot easier. I didn’t have many friends, but that wasn’t necessarily an issue for me; I found that it was actually a good thing. I wasn’t surrounded by drama or falseness. Just a few really great friends, and I learned a lot more than those friends who weren’t homeschooled— That’s not to say I was smarter, just that I was allowed a wider range of possibilities when it came to learning things. I could learn whatever I wanted, really. No limitations, no strict schedule. Not to mention, I wasn’t forced to get up at extreme hours of the morning, and thus, I was considerably rested. I had short school days and short school years. All-in-all, if I had the chance to go back and change any of it, I definitely wouldn’t. My girlfriend was also homeschooled from about middle-school and onward; we both turned out fairly well. ETA: I wanted to add that being homeschooled does not mean you get left out on “public school activities”; depending on the programs that you become a part of, most will actually let you decide if you’d like to partake in certain classes at the actual school. It also allows you to attend their events and go to graduation in the end. When homeschooling, you are still part of whichever local school you live near. For me, growing up, I was always allowed access to things at the public schools I lived near. I could’ve taken all kinds of classes if I’d liked, as many or as few as I preferred. I could’ve gone to gym or just gone to eat lunch with people. I could’ve attended all the dances, movie events, prom, etc.. I was even allowed to attend graduation and stand alongside other people who were graduating. I had all of these choices, but personally, I didn’t choose any of them. I didn’t miss out on having different teachers and not being a part of certain things, because I made that choice, even while being homeschooled. There are a lot of misconceptions about homeschooling; it’s because a lot of people merely see it as you sitting at home all day and doing nothing but learning from limited-sourced books and whatnot. But that’s not what it is at all. All they see is what they can see from the outside. Trust me, I grew up with that judgement all of my life, whether it was from other family members or even my doctor. You actually have more freedom and more choices with homeschooling, and not enough people realize that or the benefits that truly come along with it.
