The very base of a child’s character is built at his home by his parents. Apparently he gets his education at school but the grooming part is played at home by his family. Now if the whole responsibility of educating the kids along with bringing them up is taken by the family members, then it results in the best plan of schooling a child at home with no negative influence of external environment. Homeschooling these days, is playing an important role in modern societies. It reinvigorates the parents’ control over educating their children. They can keep a check on each and every activity of their kids and protect them from the evils of outside.
A public school doesn’t promise the element of attention. Is there any guarantee that if your child is a bit shy and doesn’t participate in the class conversations then the teacher would completely ignore the rest of the pupils and pay attention on your child? Certainly not! At public schools, the staff is taught to cover the majority and prefer them over the minority. But actually, you are not concerned with that majority or minority, what you are concerned about is your child, who is lagging behind other students and his precious years of constructing his intellect are going in vain at a place where is not fully attended by the teacher. Ergo, a home school makes your child feel special, he feels that whatever the environment is being set up by his parents is for him and this strengthens his interests towards studies and other instructions because he doesn’t want to spoil the efforts of his own family.
Another very prominent advantage of homeschooling is that children get to see a more informal environment. The times of formalities have diminished now. These days even the business firms and offices are encompassed by informal surroundings. They have overtaken the formal organizations. So, the kids are able to socialize and attain the element of “confidence” which is immensely needed at all stages of life. The school is usually designed to educate the children of neighborhood and other relatives as well, which makes a child positively intermingle with his fellows. They get a chance to go for different activities and arts; like karate, painting, gymnastics, swimming, skating etc. This way a more entertaining environment can be provided to the kids where they can get all benefits which the public schools don’t emphasize upon.
Apart from this, homeschooling has proven to be more economical than the random schools outside. This helps the parents cut the cost of the kids’ lunch, their transportation fees, picnic expenses etc. This in addition gives satisfaction to the parents that their children are having all hygienic food in their diet and they are safe at home. Secondly, at home the education is quality wise more standardized. The weaker subjects of the child are highlighted and are compensated with the stronger ones. In other words, ultimately the benefits of homeschooling leave no weak points in the child’s education.
