My mom will not let me do online schooling?

So, i have wanted to do online schooling for a couple of years now, but every time i bring it up, my mom yells and says no and that we will talk about it later. She doesn't think i am responsible enough to do my work and that i am too social to not talk to people every day. My parents are divorced and i live with my mom during the school years, but if i did online school i could see my dad more often, but when i say that it just makes her even more mad. My step sisters also do online schooling, so i told my mom that i would put dad's address instead of her so that i could do the outings with them, but she completely shot down that idea. I would miss seeing my friends every day, but i said that i could do the online school for the first semester and if i completely hated it, i could just go back to my regular school the second semester. During school i get really depressed and it is really hard for me, and i think that if i do online school than it will help me get a better education, how do i convince her to let me do it? She is very difficult to convince of things.

If you really want to convince her, get help for the depression *first*.  Make a doctor's appointment.  Start therapy.  THEN address the issue of online schooling.  It's a common myth around here that homeschooling and/or online schooling cures everything.  It doesn't. (If you think it does, spend a week here, you'll see some big issues under the surface of some of the "popular" answers)  If you don't see a doctor and thin online schooling is some magic cure all, then you'll just be homeschool and depressed because it's not the end all you thought it would be.  online schooling/homeschooling is fine, but it isn't going to fix every issue.

The online course allows students to study at their own pace and convenience. But many students neglect studies as they are not required to attend classes. You must convince your mom about your commitment to obtain the online certification. Once she is convinced, it will be easier to join an online school.

Hi, my daughter was in the same position as you and it took me a little bit of time and research before i decided to give it a shot.  I saw how much school was literally hurting her and i cant take that stress anymore.  The online program we are hoping she is accepted to is pretty strict with deadlines and the parents have to be involved also.  So, maybe get some information for her leave it somewhere she will definitely see it and read it.

Good Luck!
