Why let Tim and Lisa study at home rather than sending them to school? Well, first of all, you don't have to wake them up at 7 every morning and tie them to school with so many instructions, and wait with anxious hearts until they return. Homeschooling gives you more control over the influence that affects your child. Your child's growth and development is removed from an unknown world. You, and yourself, can decide what your child needs to do or learn. Adjusting the curriculum to suit the needs and interests of children is one of the most obvious benefits of homeschooling
Individual attention is another major benefit of homeschooling. For example, if Lisa needed more time to study Mathematics, then she could reduce the time for her English lessons. There are no definite study hours per subject. This means that a child has the advantage of setting more hours for a subject that seems difficult WITHOUT additional pressure. The amount of time needed to study each subject will depend on the abilities and interests of the child.
School children become big family activities. Parents are involved in each step of the learning procedure. Field trips and experiments are family activities. Thus, children receive more quality time with their parents. The whole family shares games, assignments and projects. Family closeness is the focus here. The child is also free from negative peer pressure while making choices and decisions.
Competition is limited when it comes to homeschooling. The child does not need to prove his ability with respect to other children. His faith remains intact. Because parents have a deep understanding of their child, they can plan learning programs to arouse children's interest. It is also possible to intersperse difficult tasks with fun activities. A difficult hour with Algebra can be followed by a trip to the nearest museum. Learning becomes fun. Parents can also adjust the curriculum to fit the child's learning style. Some children learn through reading, while others need to write, and others need to see objects in action.
Homeschooling allows parents to control children's moral and religious learning. Parents have the flexibility to incorporate their beliefs and ideologies into the child's curriculum. There is no confusion in the child's mind because there is no variation between what is taught and what is being practiced.
Finally, more and more parents are disappointed with the public school system. They believe that their children are pushed too hard or too little. Other worrying problems related to discipline and ethics also make the school system less acceptable. Many reject the educational philosophy of grouping children based solely on their age. Some parents themselves have unhappy memories of their own public school experiences that motivate them to choose homeschooling when it comes to their own children.
Homeschooling is the best way to teach children if you have the time, ability, and interest to continue their education. However, no one can understand or appreciate your child more than yourself.
