homeschool my children

Would that be a good idea? Could work, if they actually interacted with other kids on the regular.

@Stupidasole
I would put them in sports and choir and band and shit. Maybe have them go to public high school. It's just that public schools are just shit, and they flat out lie about historical events. Raising generations of morons.

"Christopher Columbus discovered America!" That's why it's called Columbia right? Amerigo discovered it, unless you give the credit to the vikings.

I just don't want to spend my days debunking what a pleb teacher tells my children. I'd rather just teach then correctly the first time.

I think the worst wouldn't be history, but the way they teach maths and other related shit.

No shit. American education sucks. I just wish there was a good way to socialize home schooled children. I've got some ideas, but I'm not sure it's sufficient.

homeschool my children
Oh man I can't wait to do this. Except for getting to chill with my buddies, I always hated public school. I used to constantly get in trouble for fidgeting, reading ahead of the class, etc. Public school is designed to hold kids back so everyone is at the same level. So dumb. I want my kids to enjoy learning, not dread going to a brick prison every day. I have a friend who is homeschooling her children and doing a great job. They take lessons like karate or swimming with other kids, do Boy Scouts, etc. They spend their time actually learning instead of cheating their way through a broken system.

It's sad reading this thread, realising that the likelihood is that no one here will achieve their proposed dreams.

Of course, everyone thinks that they're the exception.

I hate to out myself like this, but I was homeschooled as a kid because I moved around a lot. It worked really, really well, at least in my case.

If you divorce homeschooling from the religious groups that usually do it, it's a fucking great way to get your kids to focus on the shit that matters and prepare them for studying in college. I was able to spend a lot of my time learning stuff I gave a shit about (coding, foreign languages, finance, etc.) and not unnecessary stuff. Granted, I slacked on math and regret it to this day (part of the reason I'm getting an engineering degree in my spare time now - making up for it), but it was still valuable. No wasted time, no commuting, just focus.

The only real caveat to non-religious homeschooling I can think of is the socialization aspect. I "grew up" on the Internet, which was probably bad. Social clubs become 300x more important when you homeschool kids, as otherwise they don't socialize much. I spent about 3 years in a remote location with no homeschooling scene, which didn't help, as I went into college pretty much socially inept as FUCK.

Also, the religious kids are fucking intolerable. I can still remember being lectured by my peers for various inane shit - playing violent videogames, talking about porn, listening to metal, etc etc. Lots of them are now married with 12 kids and stuff, their Facebook feeds are unbearable. The girl I had a crush on back in the day now has 10 kids with a man twice her age.

Well you really dodged that bullet.

My family isn't religious so no worries there. Like you said, those kids are creepy as fuck.

home schooling makes you miss out on the most important part of school: how to deal with rules / teachers / punk kids / make friends / be exposed to trouble kids AKA REAL LIFE. it is SO much more important then however fucked up you think the education system is. Supplement it if you want with additional work, but home schooling is doom ESPECIALLY for girls.

home schooling is a disaster and is 99% done by religious people. Your precious little shit kids are going to crash and burn when they move into the real world.

Buddy of mine has been fired from every job he's had because he doesnt understand how to relate to people. He's hard working and respectful of authority but doesnt get along with anyone and takes everything personally when coworkers tease him or are assholes. He never learned how to deal with bullies and asshole people because he was homeschooled until highschool.

Public school is designed to hold kids back
Qualified teacher here. It's not 'designed' to hold kids back. The US school system is just so fucking bad because there's a LOT of dumb kids raised by dumb parents, and dumb cunts vote in people who promote 'no child left behind' and so teachers have to teach to the stupid, leaving the smart people stagnating, yet collecting accolades because the retards of the class can participate. School is fucked, but not because it is intentionally 'designed to hold kids back' - it's designed to hold retards hands which in turn holds normal kids back
