rainbowsandallthatjazz said: Is homeschooling easier than public school ? Is it fun? As a shy person would it be the best choice for me?
The difficulty of homeschooling truly depends on which curricula or program you decide to use. However, the absence of peer pressure, bullying, or social anxiety definitely makes it easier to study and focus.
Homeschooling certainly can be fun! While it does take application and work, being able to do school in your pajamas or drink hot chocolate while studying or watch historical movies and count them as schoolwork certainly does add an element of fun. :) Being able to go to the movies or go bowling during normal school hours, simply because you can, is also fun. Because with homeschooling, you can always make your school up later.
You and your parents will have to choose what’s best for you, but I don’t think homeschooling is any kind of a problem for a shy person. As I mentioned earlier, it takes away peer pressure, which can be helpful for a shy person. However, since you are shy, you want to make sure you don’t become a hermit. I would recommend checking out local homeschool support groups to connect with, or taking extracurricular classes. Here is an article on homeschoolers and socialization, which might help.
I hope my answer helped you! :) Thanks for asking.
Thursday morning notes to self:
•What’s important is not what other people do/say, but rather how you react to their words and actions.
•Be kind. Be brave. Be understanding. There is a world of hurt out there, and it’s not my place to judge or assume.
•People come and people go. Both are good things, crucial to growth.
•Be patient with yourself and with others. We’re all on our way to who we are.
