The social side.

What a lot of people worry about when considering taking their child out or leaving school is the social side of things.

When I left I had a lot of comments saying things like “Well what are you going to do about friends?”

I live in the Huddersfield area and there are plenty of meet ups with other home educated students. This is a really good way to meet new faces, learn about others situations and possibly get some advice.

Many children do out of school activities already so they are developing their social skills there, not all friends come from school.

Me personally I do Martial Arts and have done for over ten years. I have made lots of new friends there and see them out of the Dojo aswell.

Also one of my best friends went to primary school but didn’t go to the same high school as me and I still him regularly.

Thankyou!

Thank you for the amount of support on yesterday’s blog, I can’t believe how many views it has!

Some of the people who got in touch said that they hoped this blog would be helpful on their  or their children’s journey.

I’d love to be able to inspire others in my situation.

GCSEs

It’s all about choices when you’re not in school!

Since you’ve been at high school you’ve been waiting for the day at the end of year 9 when you get to pick your options… But is it really ever your option?!

I chose my options but it was very limited in what I could choose. Now as a home educated student there are so many more options open to me.

My choices

I’ve chosen to take one GCSE early in psychology. So thats my main focus at the moment. Then next year I’m taking English Language, Maths, Geography and Business Studies. I am going to be learning about life and hope to experience lots of different things. I’d like to visit Auschwitz to see history for myself.

I’m also doing some online courses, one of which is on the anthropology of social media.
