HOMESCHOOLING APART FROM TRADITIONAL EDUCATION
Homeschooling has become more common today. The fact that education is readily available but
more expensive depending on the quality environments has forced a lot of parents to homeschool
their children. Learning is all about facilitation.
⬤ If the environment can be better provided at home, homeschooling is a good option. Nobody knows the child better than the parents. Depending on the growth of the child, his reaction to the world around, his learning capacity, a suitable environment should be designed, whether it is at a school or not.
⬤ Some would argue that homeschooling doesn’t help children develop social skills as they do not mingle with people of various age groups on a daily basis. Contrary to this popular belief, there remain many venues that a child can be exposed to outside a conventional learning environment where they can mingle with people of all age groups.
⬤ Homeschooling does not essentially mean cutting your child off from the traditional ways of education. It simple emphasizes on the importance of individual attention.
As per recent research homeschooled kids generally have a deeper sense of knowledge of pertaining subjects than children growing in schools whose learning is easily influenced by peers.
⬤ Besides, learning other perspectives can come from relatives, neighbors and friends, maybe the kids at the local field. Either way, it is important to instill a sense of togetherness and belief through learning, which has proven to be successfully integrated in homeschooling environments as well.
⬤ There are studies that show that homeschooled children approach relations in a healthy manner owing to the fact that they aren’t confined to a peer group or affected by shifting schools as much. After all, the most important part of education is how you relate to one another and to knowledge.
