Do you wish you were homeschooled? Are you homeschooling your kids now? Do you plan to homeschool in the future?

    Witout proper socializations and it will have an impact on the child. Diversity of experiences are important.

        I’ve never particularly understood this criticism, at least for my school. Elementary school was a little like that because we had the one main teacher, but by middle school and high school we were being encouraged to try out different things. And that was just before magnet schools were a thing in my school district. Now my elementary school shares space with a Spanish immersion school and my high school has a special arts magnet program. It seems like kids are being encouraged more than ever before to explore their individuality.

        Depends where. But yes a public school system will tend to decrease individuallity in profit of the collective, I don’t see it as a bad thing. It’s just different.

      easy, Homeschool groups. I did it all the time. You sign up for specific groups that have a curriculum and set field trips and play dates for kids to learn and socialize, without having to deal with the american schools system.

        Sounds like a good plan. I have no experience with the us system.

        Honestly, being forced into socializing with other kids was one of the best parts of my education. I have trouble getting motivated to plan things with friends, so k-12 and college were wonderful for building friendships. I haven’t necessarily continued those friendships much, but they were a great gift.

            Point taken. I realize I was lucky in the area of bullying. Either I never was a tempting target, my school didn’t have many bullies, or both. Looking back, I think some people tried to bully me a little and it flew over my head. Kind of hilarious in hindsight.
