Mar 9, 2008
There are lots of people dropping mainstream education to child home schooling. The are various reasons to it. However, nurturing a child through home schooling program is never an easy task even if it may sound like it in the beginning; keeping up with lessons, deciding when to be strict and when to let go is really difficult for a parent.

There is a trend that more and more parents are choosing child home schooling are taking up this new form of education. All they want is to be in charge of what the child is studying while others have a child that has a disability and doesn't want to send him/her to a special school.

Whatsoever is the reason, child home schooling has experienced a considerable increase in participating families.

Having said that, there are certain benefits why most people are choosing home schooling.

What are the benefits?

#1 You are able have immediate responsibility for exactly what your child learns or being exposed to. He or she will give immediate feedback unlike feeling shy during a mainstream class in a school, he might be afraid to ask questions.

#2 Tolerant teaching is the key here. Both the teachers or the parents and the student (the child) will be more patience towards each other. This will enhance bonding among themselves.

#3 Getting to know their child as he/she grows up, thus creating a bond which sometimes is lost when the kids go away to school.

Yes, there maybe benefits, there are also some disadvantages aspect of it.

They are:

#1 Parents tend to go to the extremes when teaching their child. They might be unaware that they are pushing their child too hard or letting him or her get away with much studying.

#2 Without proper training in teaching or the academic knowledge or skills, parents may not be great educators. This often gives frustration to both the parent and child.

#3 The child social life gets restricted; when a child goes to school he/she learns to adapt and socialize with others, this, is very important in a child future in order to be able to adapt to different situations later in his life such as finding a job and working in an office.

Despite the disadvantages of child home schooling, I offered some interesting tips for you as an child educator.

They are:

#1 Let your child have some time to themselves and allow them to socialize with other children so that they don't get to be timid or scared to deal with the outside world when they become adults.

#2 Logon to the internet whenever possible to find out what you need and know about home schooling. You will be surprised how much information both free and paid are available there.

#3 Do not try it on your own if your knowledge is minimum, get professional help whenever possible.

In conclusion.

Because of your child's future education at stake, you have to try your best to perform this role well, even though it is not easy to take up child home schooling. You just have to remember that the time and effort spent is worth it.
