School anxiety - September 25th 2010, 12:53 AM

I'm homeschooled and I go from stressing that I don't do as much work as people in school do, to worrying I don't know as much as people in school do...today i was trying to do biology, I could not understand this stupid krebs cycle thingy and I was hysterical, crying and freaking out that "normal people understand this". Then my mom says that most people study it. So I flip out and I'm just like "Do I not study?" I mean, she read me the chapter and I was going over the review Q's and re-reading stuff and I was freaking out...I need to somehow stop this...help anyone?

Everyone learns at they're own pace. It doesn't make you stupid or 'not normal' if some things take you a little bit longer than they may take someone else. I'm sure there are some things that you can do faster than other people.
Trust me, it took me a LONG time to realize this, but it's true! (:

If you're homeschooled you should actually have an advantage, as you have more individualised and personalised attention. Also, if you are worried that you are not covering the same topics, I have heard that there are places you can send away to for homeschool curriculums. You could ask your parents to look into it if you are very worried.

Bear in mind though, many students at school pay no attention in class. Also, if you were at school, you would be dealing with a host of issues totally unrelated to your school work like peer pressure, bullying, those noisy distracting kids that won't shut the hell up, etc.

And if it helps, there are plenty of unschooled kids who do just find at university level.
Google unschooling sometime, it's really interesting.

I have been to school, and studying simply means reading and answering questions. I used to try and find creative ways to study if the material bored me like drawing pictures and stuff, but basically studying is an individual thing, so don't worry about that.
