Happy to have been Home Educated!
Since I was born, I have been Home Educated, I absolutely loved it and wouldn’t have changed a thing about my childhood.
I believe its made me the person I am today, perhaps even a better, more open minded person at that.
When I look at young people my age nowadays, that were brought up in state education, are miserable, demanding, pretentious, arrogant, ignorant and behave like sheep. If one person says ‘swag’ 28 of them will be repeating that word throughout the rest of the day.
I grew up completely individual, and despite of where I grew up, I do have the local accent but I am no where near a clone.. The best way to describe it is, having an ant farm and only one of the ants being a red ant, that’s what I’m like.
I have a totally different outlook on life, I’m well and truly far more mature, I’m not a gossip or like every average teenage girl.
I believe that my growing up, has made me have more of an understanding of people older than me and not just socialising with those who are practically twins from other parents of me.
I’m more thoughtful too, something that a lot of young adults don’t have either.
Now, I’m not saying that all state education children are all like that, no, some of the non home ed people I know are the sweetest people, and I’m not saying that all home ed’s are lovely, some are quite the opposite.
I’m not trying to be selfish by banging my own drum of how lovely I am, I’m just telling everyone how happy alternative education has made me 🙂
