Hi, I am a recent homeschool graduate, am in college right now, and i am writing a paper on why homeschoolers are just as prepared for college both academically and socially as compared to public school students. I have plenty of personal experience to back up my thesis, but I need more than just personal experience, so I could use some input. If you are a parent reading this, why did you decide to homeschool your child in the first place, and are you involved in any homeschool groups in your area? If you are a homeschooler, do you think that you are just as capable academically and socially as public school students, and if you are a teacher readig this, if you have any experience with homeschoolers, what have been your observations concerning their academic and social skills. Do you see any difference in level of competency or ability to learn? Any answers would be appreciated, or any suggested websites to visit would also be appriciated. Thank you!!
I am a HS mom to a just turned 5 year old Daughter. I consider that I have been HSing since birth.
At 4 she really wanted to go to preschool with her friends and refused to work with me anymore telling me that I wasn't her teacher. I enrolled her in a private Montessori preschool 2 days a week and after 2 days of being there moved her into the kindergarten/1st grade class because she was so advanced. She started exhibiting behavioral issues and I decided to take her out and she has gone back to her sweet confident self.
We are back to our routine again and she is thriving. We have an informal co-op where we either take turns teaching classes or hire a teacher (like for Spanish Class). We go on field trips together, park days etc.
People are often amazed at how social she is. She doesn't know a stranger.
People make comments to me all the time and often say things like "Wow she's so articulate" or "What a fantastic vocabulary"
"she's very outgoing"
She has friends of many ages and back rounds and has a wide interest in subjects.
I could go on and on why this is the best choice for my daughter...feel free to email me if you want more info. I live in Chippewafalls Wisconsin I am looking for a good homeschooling program for my Highschooler Does anybo
