    Being so mature at that age isnt such a good thing, and theyre probably ahead of you in many other aspects of life.
    Like? Being complete morons?

    It so hasn't done the opposite. My sis is now at school doing A-levels, and has found that she is considerably more... mature and wise than everyone there.
    I'd put that down to up bringing. School does help you know about the big bad world and who is waiting out there!

    And i think it broadens social skills

    You don't need to go to school to know about the big bag world and who is waiting there, you know! Believe me, I have had plenty experience of the big bad world.

    And its plainly obvious already that the fact that you havent been to school as made you into someone who thinks theyre superior than those that have been to school - thats quite a naive point of view to have on life - whos less mature now?

    Besides, you learn from different people who have a different way of veiwing thinhs, therefore you have a wider opinion and get all sides.

    I do not think I am superior to anyone, it's just that my experience of people who go to school are generally rather immature, and I am sick of people being unpleasant to me because I was taught at home and acting like they are the most knowledgeable, better people than those that are taught at home, and according to many people, a social outcast and a complete weirdo.

    I don't disagree with you but I think it depends on the person, I know I and most of my friends were very mature at an early age in school and there were many who were not.

    Its just my personal opinion that people who go to school are better equiped for life - no need to get so defensive. And I dont know what kind of experience youve had with people who go to school - are you sure youve been talking to people your age and not the year 7's ?

    Uh-huh. And I've 'been talking' to plenty of people a lot older than me too. And if you had had the kind of bullying and unpleasantness I have had for being taught at home, you would get pretty defensive too.

    Bullying and unpleasentness? Im sure its just harmless banter - youd know more about that if you went to school.

    You haven't got a clue. We had to move house because we were bullied so much where we used to live. You are sadly jsut proving youself to be another person who goes to school that is narrow-minded and thinks they are better just because they go to school.
