Confidence and Personality Building Homeschooling provides the opportunity and gives time to the children to mingle with all age groups, which helps in instilling confidence in them. However, once I began homeschooling, I found that it does have its pros and cons. Because home schooling your kids is really a full time job, you just may not have enough time in the day to do what you need to get done. Most colleges will make provisions for allowing the homeschooled child to attend their institutions. I loved traveling but recognized my daughter was too gregarious and competitive to home school. There are other homeschoolers out there - you just have to find them! Most home schooling parents find that the disadvantages of home schooling are somewhat insignificant in comparison to the benefits of raising and educating their own children. Luckily we have our pick of schools and can choose to send our child to one that does not follow conventional teaching methods which I found incredibly tedious as a child.
Homeschooling has taught me how to keep my cool when the noise level becomes unbearable or my children spill paint on the carpet. My home educated son has done more experiments at the age of 8 than I have done in my entire high school career. It will prove to be much more daunting for children who has been sheltered, controlled and regimented within narrow constraints that do not in any way mirror the real world. You will have little respite and less time for yourself or your spouse. Home schoolers can cut all of the unnecessary waiting because they learn alone at home so, they can manage their time without thingking other students. For example, in school, a child has to compete with so many others to get into a sports team, this makes him strong enough to face challenges, compete, and even to accept rejection, in case he is not able to make the cut.
However, my concerns about them having no friends are nowhere near realized. In the public school for example in Indonesia, the parents should pay Rp 500. Lovely messages sent from visitors like you: Oh my goodness! Take advantage of and other. You know what teaching is? And this was not difficult or expensive at all. I have enough friends who are parents, teachers and administrators to get the serious vibe that common core is a lot more of the one-size-fits-all, there-is-only-one-right-way-to-process-information style that makes me so insane. In these situations, you will just run yourself ragged running after the kids, preparing lessons, cleaning the house, and maybe even running that home business.
Back when we rushed to get everyone off to school in the mornings, the adult who stayed behind cleaned up the empty house. Those who present this argument worry that, by being taught in their home, these students are ill-equipped to integrate themselves into society upon graduation, and are not as prepared as their contemporaries for college or the workplace. This means going on more field trips to broaden their learning. I hate to keep going back to this one but no matter what, the best place for kids to learn social skills is at school. I thought one of the advantages of homeschooling would be a decrease in ridiculous, awkward, forced social situations. They talk to adults like they are peers. One disadvantage of homeschooling is that there is no set curriculum and that parents may not have the right skills to deliver a rounded education.
I agree that our school systems are more focused on the discipline of the kids. Another question that always pops up is socialization. And the part of me that wants the towel hung just so is patiently surrendering to the part that wants the children to have the opportunity and discipline to learn to do it themselves. Work on weak areas so that you can do well on exams. That is, the parent's viewpoint supersedes any other opinion. What do your children think about homeschooling? Even if they are able to live by themselves, students will have to live within the college environment with others.
This is difficult for parents who are committed to home schooling and are convinced that this is God's plan for their family. And even the teacher is well trained, it will be difficult to give an individual attention. I would venture to say that alternative means of educating children globally, will continue to grow, with advancements in online and virtual learning, as well as homeschooling. I don't buy that argument either. Cuddly mentors and prickly ones.
Traditional schooling was our last thread of being somewhat normal. By setting up a schedule, working on projects from home and joining a homeschool support group, you can avoid feelings of isolation and loss of identity. The child might even find it difficult to mingle with the other children of his age, when studying at home. Along with being their teacher you must also be their parent. But like I said maybe that's what it is like in the States because I have yet to hear of these kinds of problems.
I know homeschooling isn't for everyone, especially when it comes to the socialization aspect. Parents may not like the lack of control they have over a school's environment. It was all such a rush with so much unhealthy pressure. When thinking about the putting your children through home school versus public or private school, you really should make sure that you understand all of the criteria involved in at home education. Although they relished the idea of 'being who you want to be' and felt that was a really important benefit of being homeschooled , they did feel the disadvantage of being thought 'different' from other children who go to school. Parents understand if the children take time to understand things, and may even use certain other methods to specifically teach their children.
Now the kiddos are doing laundry and dishes every morning, tidying up routinely throughout the day, and learning to be more diligent about leaving spaces better than they found them. Most states in the United States allow homeschooled kids to learn what they want, when they want, and for as long as they want. Supposed social benefits of school were not even a factor. That we would become tired of each other. You can share the common, everyday joys of life together and not miss out on important developmental stages of each person.
