True. However, she could still do homeschooling and take an EVENING job. When DSD was doing homeschooling (ages 16 and 17 I think) she was totally on her own. Her aunt (who she lives with), didn't give her any help.

I am constantly flabbergasted when I read things like this. How can a 16 year old homeschool totally on their OWN?? (unless they are some baby geniouses or something). I mean, I was a pretty smart cookie in high school, and motivated to boot, but there was no way I could have learned physics, calculus, foreign language, and so on and so forth through an online course. Perhaps I could have slid by and graduated, but I wouldn't have attained the academic heights I was capable of. And there was no way my parents would have been capable of teaching me some of the advanced subject matter typical of my junior and senior years.
