When children stay at home all day, and mothers are teachers, there are some disciplinary problems at stake. It's easy for children to misinterpret the freedom they have at home and feel that homeschooling is just a long summer vacation. This is a potential land mine and children need to be disciplined from the start.
Homeschooling gives you and your child enormous flexibility. You and your child decide where to study, how much to study and when to study. However, this must be a decision made at an early stage. If your child is too small to take an active part in the decision, make a few hours a day for various activities, and obey it. When there are no outside agents to supervise and there is no test to answer, it is easy to transfer. If your child is old enough, consult him and find out when he wants to study. Apply the wisdom of your parents and make a schedule.
Homework is also part of homeschooling. What this means is that once the lesson has been taught, the child must be asked to do several parts of the course by working alone without your guidance. You need to make sure that your child sits willingly and finishes the job.
Manners, courtesy and timeliness are some of the various aspects of the discipline that a child must absorb in the early years of his life. The school where he interacts with his friends, his seniors and juniors and his teachers form these values automatically. Homeschooled, children must be taught the importance of talking and behaving in the right way and correct correction needs to be done if the behavior is unsatisfactory.
It is recommended to set aside a certain space or part of the space to homeschool you. The child must be expected to reach his desk at the appointed time, in appropriate clothing with all the necessary materials. It is very easy to allow the school to become an extension of the game if these basic rules are not arranged and followed. When teachers, supervisors, principals, and janitors join, you also have to approach the learning area with cool professionalism.
Homeschooling will fail without patience. Apart from all the precautions and steps taken, it's easy for a child to get used to homeschooling. At such times, it may be difficult to discipline a child and make him listen to you attentively. hen this happened, switch to something new. Let the child rest and enjoy his own rest.
Homeschooling is not easy. It requires a lot of hard work and patience. The informality of the entire procedure sometimes works against it by making it too easy. If you take steps to set rules at the outset and adhere to these rules, your homeschooling experience will be a big success.
Social Concerns of HomeschoolingSocial skills are a very worrying field in terms of homeschooling. Many critics point out that because humans need to hone their social skills, a homeschooling environment where limited social interaction will damage their growth and development. But research proves this is wrong.
Children placed in highly competitive school environments do not have the confidence to hold conversations. Such children show little genuine interest in the topic of conversation and do not know how to interact with people of various age groups, especially their parents.
Home-learning children are more aware of the implications and goals of their learning. They will ask intelligent questions and make accurate observations. Children start their lives by imitating their parents. Therefore children who study at home take the qualities they see in their parents. On the other hand, they are protected from the bad influence of their peers.
Thus, these children are more equipped with the tools needed to face the world. Positive reinforcement that occurs in homeschooling as opposed to being abandoned, humiliated or ignored in a normal school environment reinforces their self-esteem. Children turn out to be more balanced and knowledgeable when they develop into adulthood.
