For me, Homeschooling is still the Best Choice
Supposedly the cradle of teaching and nourishment, the place where children feel loved and well guided....
However, at the turn of time, and the point of welcoming new generations of modern living, this picture of the home gradually changed. Now, more than ever, the home has become no more than just a place to eat and rest for most family members of the modern world.
Nevertheless, families still have a choice.
Although the current society has at least 76% of its population highly depending on the structured education that the national governments insist upon, there are still others who embrace the thought of handling educational responsibilities at home. Parents, being the closest and the most influential individuals in the lives of their children do so much to make sure that their children learn what they need to know; especially matters that are essential to human living.
Homeschooling has become a core issue of debate between many parents and educationists for many years. Nevertheless, the increase of popularity with regards the effectiveness of homeschooling makes this process of learning an interesting factor that many parents venture to these days.
In a materially driven world, parents are often forced to get out of their way to find measures of possible earning that would give them the capacity to provide for their families materially. It has been a common trend among families today that both the mother and the father are required to work outside of the house just to earn the right amount of finances to support the needs of the members of the family.
Some however have managed to reassess their priorities and create adjustments with regards the manner by which they spend money. Seemingly, they find that this approach allows them to have more time for their family members [especially the children] and provide them the most essential part of their responsibilities, giving attention to the mental and emotional needs of the young ones.
Homeschooling has become one of the reasons why some parents made changes in their family life's priorities. Desiring to be the ones to influence their children, these parents try to make sure that the youngest members of their family become accustomed to the morals, the principles and the living condition that their family is relatively connected to. This decision has affected so many families especially when it comes to improving the bonds that parents and children share.
Homeschooling is a serious decision that parents must make with an informed understanding of its process...
As they say, homeschooling is not for the faint-hearted :).
Relatively, parents who choose to homeschool should know both the advantages and the disadvantages of the matter. The good thing though is that since parents have a direct understanding of their children, they are able to choose which process of learning best fits their youngsters.
The first days of homeschooling may be rough especially for inexperienced ones.
NO matter, learning through the process and noting the developments of the young learner based on the activities given to her from time to time could help parents find the most considerable approach to learning that would best work for their kids.
The fruits of hard labor are many.....
Some of the benefits that can be received from homeschooling include:
- proper nutritional nourishment of the child/children because their food is properly watched
- children learning according to their own pace and their own style
- children well protected from bullies and from possible influences of peers that may destroy their morals
- children given proper attention and assistance on subjects they may not fully understand
- staying away from the stressed and worries of not having the children around when emergencies occur
- protection from other health hazards that can be resulted from mingling with other students who may be ill as well
