I am homeschooled and due to my location I have chosen to not participate in many face to face activities because I do not enjoy being around the people who live here. I am virtually cut off from civilization sometimes spending periods of weeks without leaving the confines of our property and communicating with no more than 3-4 non-family members. Up to roughly 7th grade (I am now in 10th) I was well ahead of my grade level academically and since then my progress has stalled. When I try to do something or am motivated to do something by my own curiosity I have absolutely no problem doing high level work in those areas but when I am not self-motivated, I sit there, barely able to focus, doing very little or pretending to be doing my work when I am actually doing something that entertains my mind. Due to this lack of motivation, my performance has stalled completely and I am now at or below my grade level in several "boring" subjects. They are starting to get worried (and rightfully so) about my lack of progress which leads to my mom wanting to help me more. My mom's teaching quite honestly sucks and is nowhere close to ideal so I have hid under a rock and tried to teach myself so that I have even less interaction with her which in turn sets up another iteration of this vicious cycle.
Generally in a Public (or Private) school, if you have an issue relating to a teacher, you have your parents, another teacher, another adult in your life, or in some cases the administration of the school. In my situation, my parents (who's relationship is starting to strain a little bit) are attempting to be both teacher and parent at the same time which leaves me with nobody but myself to motivate myself because when I tell them that their teaching is not working, they both get defensive and threaten to take away my only source of outside interaction (my elective courses and my computer) if my grades don't improve. I believe I have some undiagnosed ADD issues and possibly a little bit of depression and am completely lost and trapped between my life (most of which is banned by them but I do anyway) and my school.
