As long as your parents are helping and monitoring what you do, I don't see a problem with it. There should be structure to your day too, not just do it when you feel like it. Hopefully they are allowing you to have social opportunities too.
I think if you live close to a fairly large city, it's great, because there are homeschool groups you can get involved with. for girls and boys out in the country, or as I like to put it: In the middle of nowhere, it's not so good. I'm currently homeschooled and hate it, because I'm stuck out in the back country also known as southern IN.
I think for some people it is a great option. My husband is retired Army and though we didn't have kids, many of our friends did. Homeschooling was a great option because they moved so often it kept continuity in their education.
i homeschool, its a lot harder to focus, and we never get to see anyone and im almost always sad but i try not to show it my mom thinks its cool but i dont enjoy it but i dont wanna make her feel like its bc of her....so i dont tell her how i really feel about it...

I'm homeschooled and I believe it has given me good family time and, considering I'm learning at home, it has taught me to willfully and ambitiously learn on my own even during off school hours. But don't get me wrong, public school can be good, too!
If your home schooled or you have kids that are home schooled of course your going to lean more towards it homeschooling. I think it's very important to go to a traditional school to get social interaction that will prepare us for work and other crap
Probable 100x better then other school... I don't need to know that Melissa gained 5 pounds or that Brandon did drugs... It seems like homeschooled kids get a little more choice in what they study... A school teacher is only teaching for money... And doesn't really care about the kid later in life she/he just wants to get them past their class and away... I'd do ANYTHING to be homeschooled...
I have a few friends who are home schooled and it really works for them. As long as it works for you it's great, just make sure you also get out there and do sports and things like that to make friends (that's how i met my friends.)
It's okay, I have been homeschooled for a while now. It has ups and downs. Downs, I don't have a real teacher so I don't get the same marks, which makes it more complicated when who ever comes to look over what you have done and make sure you are learning. People say that home schooling makes you less social, and that is true up to a point, I wasn't ever really a social butterfly in school either and I thought school was about education, not making boyfriends. And I'm not completely cut off the the world (no matter how hard I may try) I still go to classes and groups for homeschoolers. Ups, I am less distracted when trying to study, my room is like my own little world, were I control, almost, everything. There's no one cracking jokes, passing notes, texting or whispering. When you are not understanding something in school you can't say much, other wise you slow everyone down. Homeschooled you focus a bit more on what you need more understanding on. Maybe I miss a few things from school, but homeschooling seems better. It probably changes per student on which is more effective.
Homeschooling is fantastic. Yes, they will get their social skills eventually. And they won't be bullied or learn bad habits from the other kids. Gee, what ever did we do in America before public school? Hmmmm. And who won the huge spelling bee contests. Hmmmm.
Our child was homeschooled, and was doing great, but has ADHD, so it got a bit over our heads. So if you have a special educational need child, go that route.
