Home Schooling And Its Fundamentals

May 5, 2008
Parents of the present generation have more or less been educated by public and private schools in their formative years, as this is the most usual and seemingly normal approach to be oriented into mainstream society. Thus it is only a given conclusion that they also adopt the same mindset when it comes to teaching the fundamentals of education to their children the way they know how, by enrolling them to schools alongside their peers. They expect the same outcome, that their children be assimilated well into society and into the norms that this age of knowledge can foster.

Yet some of these parents are given to scrutiny to the technical and strategic planning of the formal education of their kids. Some of them are rather aware that there might be other alternative ways of imparting knowledge that do not need a total physical adjustment to another structured environment on their children's parts. Thus the advent of homeschooling has been laid.

What is homeschooling then? This is generally described as a form of instruction to educate a child in their home by a parent or guardian as an alternative means from studying in a public or private institution. This has generally been the method of teaching long before the mandatory attendance for schoolchildren to be enrolled and to follow certain school curriculums. This has been done in the US and in other countries well.

Some may point out the difference of the results in the long-term range, as far as the quality of this type of education has on students. And adequate amount of researches showed how children taught at home turned out the same, and to some extent, with better results than those who were traditionally attending schools. This was due to certain factors that contributed to the adjustment and well-being of homeschooled youngsters who were not subjected to intense emotional upheavals on adjusting with others at an early age.

When children sometimes as young as 4 years of age are being sent to structured learning environments to presumably "adjust well", they are also presented with conflicting emotions and mental strains that are somehow still beyond their capacity to withstand. This includes undertaking interactions that are not yet into their realm of understanding (i.e. having to deal with classroom restrictions and order). The idea of allowing children to be carefree at a very young age to allow their creativity to flourish is somehow undermined by their intellectual limitations when faced with competition and other youngsters' personalities.

Thus the appeal of a homeschooling curriculum is greatly magnified especially for young children who have yet to be molded and cared for in the comforts of their familiar surroundings. By so doing, parents and their guardians will eliminate the hassles of emotional disturbance for their young students by providing the right environment for learning.

It is much better to slowly incorporate the realities of the outside world into these young ones' minds rather than abruptly putting them in a stringent school program where the student-teacher ratio is not as balanced. With this in mind, parents should prepare in advance the curriculum that they will be using as well as the home school settings that they have to provide.
