Why Some Parents Prefer To Educate Their Kids At Home
Today people are quite concerned about their children’s education, and they want to examine every alternative to offer to their kids the best they can. Besides, the role of education is more appreciated than ever. Combining this aspect with the fact that our future is held in our children’s hands, teaching them in the right way is a priority. Every educational system has its advantages and disadvantages, but some will prove more successful than others, so the discussion regarding these approaches needs to start urgently. As far as homeschooling is concerned, people who have experience in it have many positive experiences to share. Besides, coronavirus and distant learning have brought this issue up, and people have begun to think about whether teaching their kids at home will solve most of their problems regarding kids’ education.
Let’s check what the pros of homeschooling are:
- Customized lessons for every individual.
One of the most beneficial aspects of teaching a child at home is personalized learning. While in school, a whole range of subjects is regularly equally covered to satisfy the interests and talents of all kids; at home, you have the possibility to set particular goals for the kid and make the process customized. There is plenty of freedom on how to build the lesson and how much time to spend on each part. If your kid needs more in linguistic lessons than math, you are free to help your child until they absorb the knowledge. In school, learning has to be sacrificed and give its place to socialization and equality among pupils. One-on-one teaching means you don’t need to compromise. The result is that children often perform better.
- Kids become self-motivated.
When a child is learning on its own, it has better chances of becoming self-motivated. The child does not study to get better grades than their classmate. Instead, all of its efforts are oriented toward itself. The kid will neither have to feel the competition with other kids nor experience bullying for the poor performance it may have in some lessons. This starts from the fact that it does not compare itself to others. Its evaluation takes into consideration the child’s previous performance compared to its performance in the present, and this is actually how we should always compare ourselves. It is absolutely pointless to compare ourselves to others; the only useful comparison is that of our past and present condition.
- They are less distracted.
School is also a huge source of distractions. Kids will have to dedicate almost half their time to studying when they decide to do that at home. Students who go to school will have to spend some time there and then some extra time at home to do their homework. With homeschooling, there is simply no homework. All the effort that has to be made by the student is being held when the lesson is taking place. It also allows the parents and kids to combine vacation with learning. Since the child’s education is not so strict, there are many opportunities to learn throughout the day and every day of the year, even on holidays.
- More free time is essential for the child’s development.
The advanced performance kids have when they do homeschooling carries another opportunity. It allows the child to have extra time for other activities and playing, which is also important. As long as the child plays with other kids so that it does not spend most of its day alone, it is perfectly healthy to study independently. Besides, playing is a learning process for all young creatures. Think about the kittens that play as they are young. Their game is a representation of a small fight so that they can become good hunters when they grow up. The same thing applies to humans, and having spare time to play is a great advantage. It is their chance to learn real-life and get used to it. People of past generations held a lot of wisdom even though they had spent less time in school. This is proof of how important life’s lessons are for us.
