Homeschooling Moms Homeschooling Moms

I plan on giving my daughter a REAL high school experience.

Posted by   + Show Post

I was having a conversation with one of the moms at school while I was waiting to pick up 6yo dd. I was telling her that I had recently pulled 13yo dd out of school and was homeschooling her. What followed was one of the funniest conversations I've had in a while,lol.

Lady: Are you homeschooling her through high school?

Me: More than likely, yeah.

Lady: But she'll miss out on so much! She won't have the high school experiance!

Me: Oh don't worry about that. I have it all planned out. I'm going to shove her in the hallway, knock her books out of her hands, steal her lunch money and call her names. *All of this was said in a very serious voice*

Lady *Jaw drop*

Me: *Laughing* I'm just messin with you. She'll be fine. And quite honestly there are plenty of high school experiances I don't want her having.

We hung out with his friends, one of the girls was a jerk to me, and i had a fall out with ny bestfriend at that time. My whole senior year was horrible.


Quoting paganbaby:

Why didn't you have a good time?

Quoting Precious333:

That was one thing i actually i wouldnt hace mind missing out on. I actually went to.prom with my now husband, but in all honesty, it was a terrible night. It was fun getting dressed up though. I guess it all depends in your personaly prom experience.





Quoting paganbaby:

One of the things that does give me pause is prom. I missed my prom, so did my sister and mom. That's one thing I really did want her to experiance :-(

Wow. Here I am thinking PA was awful. I just read your state laws, and I am thinking I really don't have it that bad.

I went to my Junior prom, not senior, and it was pretty pointless, then again I was pretty antisocial at the time and wasnt really friends with anyone there.

From what I understand you can do a qualifying course instead of the 45 college credit hour requirement. The qualifying course doesn't look difficult and it seems to be the easiest way to get past that particular requirement. (All links clickable.)

 ROFL! And as for prom, and a graduation, a lot of homeschooled kids get together for a prom and a graduation ceremony. They sell robes and everything.
