Homeschooling Experience of A Teen

Updated on April 8, 2015

The number students studying on their home has increased over the years. Homeschooling isn't always the best choice for everyone. Some students might really need a change of surrounding, This type of students find studying difficult due to the scenery, students or teachers. For me, I tried changing school, but I still found studying hard. Some students might just hate studying, so they will make up any excuse to just try to escape from education. This is because they don't know yet what consequences are ahead of them yet. It's easy to tell the difference between these types of students. See if your child studies at home or not while he is still schooling. Parents, please make a wise decision as either yes or no could lead your child's future into disaster.

What My Parents Did

When I first talked to my parents about homeschooling, they were confused. Neither of them knew about homeschooling, so they thought I made it up. They even thought I was mentally unstable. In the end I went to a psychiatrist and got a prescription for a different problem. My parents said that if I don't go to school, I will end up being a farmer. They didn't understand that I wanted to study but I can't in my school. Luckily for me, a member of the kingdom hall visits our home once a week. They told my parents that it is possible. After visiting many offices, the Ministry of Education allowed me to take the national exams without attending classes.


I then found my life to be very boring. I have to wait at least three more years for my final exam. I had so much free time that I didn't know what to do. The boredom tried to kill me literally. I tried to attempt suicide three times. Some people can't take boredom well. I did a numerous amount of online courses. One of them was a diploma course of online marketing. I tried to apply for a university, but I got rejected because I have no secondary education certificate. That's when I founded out about IGCSE. Since my country's law forbids anyone under seventeen to participate in SPM(My country's version of a high school diploma), I decided to take the IGCSE exams. It's a great way of skipping the remaining school years.


I can't thank my parents and Jehovah enough. Without their support, I could have never gotten to this point.

For Parents, I would like to say confirm if your child will definitely study at least 1 hour per day. Some children might use this freedom badly.

For Teens and Children, study smart, not hard. Good luck on your exam.

Thank you for reading and have fun studying.
