There is absolutely zero benefit to home schooling, unless you want to raise a maladjusted, socially inept, reclusive sex pest. In which case, go for it.

Home schooled by you and taken to church for the social side of his education?

Congratulations, you've enrolled your son into paedo training camp.

Re: Home schooling/educating
At the end of school plenty of kids are still socially maladjusted or lacking... Seems a few are harming others and themselves here and there... People scorning the question have already considered their indoctrinated viewpoint and evaluated the weighting of their responses, obviously... As long a home schooling doesn't include religious mind-fucking and is monitored... You need to be dedicated to it as much or more than the kid... and not just sit them in front of a computer to achieve it...
probably...

Ohgodno - Couldn't agree more on home schooling and home births. Fucking irresponsible, home births should be banned and as for some who actually want to eat the placenta!! Anybody wanting to home school should be thoroughly checked by social services and ask the parents just how they are going to ensure their kids will get 5 decent passes at GCSE!

Re: Home schooling/educating
Sure it will have been said before on the thread but seems a good way to end up with a socially maladjusted kid to me

It's hardly following the crowd.Kids going to school to gain their education works all over the world.
If you disagree that's you're decision sounds like you've already made you're mind up.
Young people that gain degrees don't tend to spend the rest of their days working in burger bars.

I'd go for it. Just look what happened to Zamo, he's dead now after an overdose and Rowland is fatter then before.

Good luck....

Re: Home schooling/educating
Same here. Why follow the crowd with lots of qualifications going for interviews with 100s going.
Getting into debt going to uni where people with degrees working in McDonald's.
But that's how I view things anyway.

I couldn't agree more mate.I can't think of a single reason why anyone would want to attempt to educate their kids at home.

'Mine both seem to really enjoy school but weirdly given my own lean in that direction I couldn’t give a fuck how they do academically. I just want them to be happy.'

Amen to that.

Re: Home schooling/educating
School is good for social learning. Being around others. Friend, foe and indifferent. Different genders, religions, colours and creeds.
Developing routine, discepline, team building etc to aid transition Into work
Wide range of skills that should transition to many different areas of life / work

Oh yeah and proper education to pass those pesky GCSE things that employers want

As long as you are dedicated to making sure he learns then it shouldn’t be a problem. The yanks have lots of online programs to support this kind of thing. I imagine something like the IB has the same.

Bloody heck. Some saying good idea others opposite. My work might offer me more hours and that will be hard to turn down. Roll on end of June.

Re: Home schooling/educating
Kids need school.

They just need educational back up in the house as well.

Re: Home schooling/educating
It's me who dosent want him going back to be fair. Hate the way school takes the creativity out of them and replaces it with stuff they don't need to know. Lucky enough I know quite a few teachers who are good friends and i can afford to turn it into a travelling adventure De-schooling him and teaching him what he needs to know.

We both travel a lot and have similar interests . And it was my idea not his.

I can see us living up I the Scottish highlands soon away from it all. Have season tickets at Inverness Caley.

Btw hope its true we are playing Aberdeen

Re: Home schooling/educating
Also a 12 year old has nearly talked you into not sending him to school. If you can be outwitted by a 12 year old perhaps you shouldn't be schooling one.

Re: Home schooling/educating
Fuckwits who homeschool are like stupid fucking women who homebirth. They end up costing the tax payer a fortune when the shit hits the fan and they find out they've made a stupid choice.

Love it Toe Rag.

He will probably agree with you the 100%.

Hopefully as time goes on he will gain confidence.
