No, you're not asking to much at all.
Was it your choice to switch to homeschooling?
--Partly. My family had been considering it for a while before hand, and I was more than happy to allow that to happen. My mother was taken out of public school to be homeschooled as well.
Didn't you miss all the social contacts?
--Heh, not at all. Most of the children in public school are very imature for their age. It's not their fault, its just a heirachy that public school has formed. Individuality is rare. I barely had any intelligent conversaions with my peers while in public school. When I was taken out I still had some contacts with a few friends worth keeping. Some of them also have ended up in homeschool, and even though we go through different schooling programs we can still have a class together. Thanks to instant message we can research and share resources.
Do you think that overall it was a good decision?
--Absolutly. I am not forced to do something a "certain way" which actually helps me remember what I learn. I do not in any way feel that I am missing out on social contacts at all.
The schooling program I use is called American School
My friends use Bob Jones University (a christain school)
