9 Ways You Know You’re a Homeschooler!

As a homeschooler, you have some different experiences than the rest of us. Here are nine things I know you’ve either dealt with or felt…laugh along with me!

 

1. When someone asks you what grade you’re in, you have to really think about it…but deep down you have no clue.

 

2. You had already started reading books…in Kindergarten.

 

3. You didn’t have to do school on your birthday, but all of your public/private school friends did. You probably texted them photos of your epic day.

 

4. “Hey, let’s study geography while making cookies!” This was a common phrase spoken in your homeschool group.

 

5. Your mom made you clean the house and called it Home Ec…now you really question it.

 

6. Watching any TV show or movie at home turns into a learning opportunity.

 

7. Your friends THINK all you do is hang out all day and have it easy, but you work REALLY hard.

 

8. “Let’s go on vacation” really meant, “Let’s go to a museum and learn!”

 

9. You develop a special, unique bond with your homeschool group that lasts a lifetime!

    Lol all are true except the last one, hahaha. If you’re in a small group in a small town you’ll get soooo sick of hanging around the same people because if you make them mad you won’t have a good time… Also it’s super hard to date because you’ve known everyone for years hahaha.

    Why do people always say we aren’t socialized? That is a stereotype I hate! I love being homeschooled, and I have plenty of friends! 🙂 they are really amazing, I couldn’t ask for better friendships!! 🙂

    I go to public school now but I was homeschooled from 2nd-5th grade (I’m in 9th grade now) and I remember how true all of these were! And when you go grocery shopping or run errands with your mom during the day and people ask why you’re not in school… That happened to me all the time lol

    All of them except 8 for me, my mom never really took me on field… I also have to add everyone asks if you’re “Unsocial…”
    I’ve been homeschooled all my life and I have plenty of friends….. 😛

    The number one way to know you’re a homeschooler is????

    YOUR TOTALLY SOCIALLY AWKWARD!!!!

      I am homeschooled and I think many homeschoolers are better at socializing than other kids. Do you ever find that it’s hard for you to be involved in a conversation with other kids because all they are talking about are things that are totally ridiculous?

      Not true bro! I’m home-schooled and I’m only socially awkward if everybody’s all clique-y, which isn’t really my fault.

    • mnkowgirl

      Posted by mnkowgirl on May 22, 2014 at 16:26

      Are you or have you been homeschooled? Actually, the majority of us are NOT socially awkward. Some homeschoolers do lack social skills but so do other people. Do you know how many kids in public/private schools are socially awkward?? We’re just different. That’s rude and I hate it when people use that dumb argument about homeschoolers.

        Posted by Hawky2000 on May 23, 2014 at 12:23

        Totally agree, we’re really not anti-social and if you’ve met some homeschoolers that are it might be because their parents pulled them out of school because of it… Sometimes its easier for people who are shy to learn in their own home without the pressure of being in a classroom.

        Also everyone in my family (of 6 kids) are outgoing accept one of my brothers, because he’s always been an introvert.

    Not true……… I was homeschooled and and none of these are true, except for the first one…. Although I did go on field trips a lot 😛

    AHAHAHA!!! SO true.. all of it. Also should be added “when you weren’t allowed to watch ANY Disney shows your friends watched” and “when you didn’t know what most of the popular secular music was” 😀 Being home-schooled is the bomb

      I wasn’t allowed to watch a show on Disney Channel, then it was on ALL the time, so my mom let it go :).

    Some of this is true, but minus the home school group in my case. My parents kept me sheltered and I didn’t talk to children near my age. So my best friend was the character in books I read.

      Thats horrible. Your case is exactly why home schooling is bad in some cases. You shouldnt have been exiled from the world.

    Well, I didn’t have a homeschool group…there were homeschool swim lessons and gymnastics my family got involved in. We developed close bonds with a few families. Since we stopped going there are two families we still see from time to time and one that my sister is pen pals with.

    About half these apply to me! 🙂
    I have something else to add: You know you’re probably in a group of homeschooled girls when you hear them saying things like “I just knitted this or that” -and the girls are all 11 or 12. 🙂

    I remember once when I was real young and one of my parents’ friends was talking to me. It went like this:
    Woman: “What school do you go to?”
    Me: “I don’t go to school.”
    Woman: *jaw drops open*
    Apparently, I didn’t know I was supposed to tell her I was homeschooled instead of saying I didn’t go to school! 😀

      oh my goodness I crochet not knit but its about the same! Its so funny when I was younger people did the same thing and asked me where I went to school, well I was really young and didn’t know where I went so I said I didn’t go…. at one point I was talking to a police officer we met in the store and he asked where I went to school and said I didn’t go to school… He had a very serious talk with my mom… and then died of laughter when he realized that I was just homeschooled.
