School should be a fun thing to do where children come to get knowledge, meet and socialize with friends. However, in fact, some children get pressured from school for not scoring high, for being different from other students, and for being smarter than the rest of the students. That is why some parents choose to homeschool their child to avoid such things. There might be some arguments that students from homeschooling will not have social skills better or they are not smarter than the public school’s student. If you are interested in this topic, you should read more to learn that homeschooling has many advantages.
It is already a public secret that students feel more pressured than happy for attending school. Learning should be a happy activity in any way until they feel like learning is not an obligation but it is something they love. Unfortunately, they can not get it at public school. In homeschooling, they can choose which subject or knowledge they want to learn without being forced to be mastered in a subject that they do not like. Moreover, rather than scoring high, homeschooling teaches them how to take value in every subject that they can learn and practice it in everyday life.
Friends and surrounding are what makes parents worry the most when they send their child to public school. But when homeschooling, parents know whom their children socialize with and how the environment treats them. Besides teachers, friends and the environment are two factors that can also influence how the child thinks. They will become closed and depressed if they grow up in an environment that likes verbal abuse or bullying events. Meanwhile, they will be someone who believes in their potential and has better self-esteem when they are in a supportive environment.
If you think that homeschooling students will instead become anti-social people, then you are wrong. Homeschooling students will be able to interact with people older than them and it can help them to develop their social skills by learning to older people. Children at their age tend to imitate someone’s behavior. If it is a positive behavior, it is great. What worry the parents most is that the will copy and get influenced by their same age friend who does bad habits.
In conclusion, homeschooling is better for the children in some aspect. It also makes them smarter because they get knowledge that they will not ever get if they attend public school.
