HI! I'm Heather and after failing at non-communicating cyber schools, I put my two kids (12 &16) back into 'traditional' school. However, on the third week of school while giving my kids their anti-anxiety medication so they would and could go to school I realized there was something inherently wrong with the situation. To medicate our children so they'll leave the house and go to school where they're forced to do things they're not comfortable with, bullied by teachers and having judgment passed upon them by other children? I think not. Although I don't necessarily have the faith in myself to actually HOME SCHOOL my kids, I want to get back to Cybering but I'm unsure about that now after the issues we've faced.
I had done a general search on homeschool vs. cyberschool and found your site and I'm hoping to get lots of replies to this post, which do you think is better to get my age of kids through school, get a diploma IN CASE they want to do college someday, (although they both say no way), UNschooling them, teaching life as it is, cyber or home? Help!
