I am a academically gifted student and can learn faster than most of the kids in my grade. My friend is homeschooled and herI'm has said that she would love to homeschool me. I have BEGGED my mom to let me be homeschooled, and brought up points like saving a BUTT LOAD of money, and me getting the academic challenge I need, but she says she doesn't want me to because she wants me in a school setting. Like I said, I have BEGGED her, but she will not budge. ANY ADVICE FOR CONVINCING MY MOM??? Thanks!
Most parents feel insecure about homeschooling if they have no educational background. I can understand your mom's position as a parent myself. What you may want to consider is an online class situation. Your mom would still have a role to play in your education as a mentor, and you would have the formality of a classroom setting which would appeal to your mom. An excellent example would be k12 (you can find them at k12.com). You would be able to advance at your own pace, be challenged, and it is tuition free (at least it is in PA). I have suggested online to many parents who are looking for a long term solution to their children's educational needs. Just keep in mind, time management will be an important tool during your online experience that will aid you now as well as in the future. I used it frequently in my online degree program.
Best wishes in your educational future.
