Homeschooling- Does It Lead To Better Personal Development

Nov 21, 2007
"A child should always study in a conventional school and know about the real world"- this is what people usually say, but don't worry as homeschooling is the best topic that can be argued on and won. A conventional school does not truly reflect the truth; it only portrays a much-distorted view of the real world because schools amplify every emotion within a child and become a place where every teenager dictates his or her hierarchy and social acceptability. Adults rule in a conventional school and children control the social strata, then where is the place for your child to progress?

Teachers love to be respected, but respect cannot be demanded, rather it should be gained by cajoling the students or hitting their likeability rating by developing a good rapport with them. Gone are the days where the teachers were respected without any questions asked. Recently there have been numerous confrontational stories and now safety of the child is of prime concern rather than worldly knowledge.

Homeschooled children usually interact with siblings, family members, and hence they are exposed to maturity. A child is like wet clay that soaks up everything around. Why not give him or her the best to grow and open up to? Studies have shown that home school kids are more confident as compared to their counterparts in the regular schools, who display dictated emotional growth.

People say that homeschoolers live in a plastic bubble, which is completely wrong. Homeschoolers are smart, they set their own schedules and hence they have more time to do more things that interest them. They are not disturbed by other kids, hence homeschoolers can concentrate well and study more and they explore the world in detail even as they go camping through the year.

Homeschooling kids are said to be quite smarter as compared to their counterparts, but it all depends on the kid's aptitude, attention span and the quality of the instructor. Homeschoolers learn well because the ratio of the teachers versus the student is quite less and therefore the teachers can individually concentrate and help the child to develop. These children tend to graduate earlier because they have more time to grasp the same knowledge and can get their work down much quicker or even have more time to work.

Many homeschoolers excel in Math and Reading that are considered difficult subjects and they participate wholeheartedly in sports. Teens who are homeschooled turn out to be more confident and independent and have loftier morals. Homeschoolers are more polite and know more than their counterparts. Home-schooled teens grasp more knowledge on certain topics that are generally not taught in conventional schools like values, but they do miss the chance to interact with people and thus they become prepared to handle life as and how it comes.

Homeschoolers don't have to worry about the things that usually occur in traditional schools like ragging or peer pressure. Home schooling leads to better personal development where the kids are usually a lot smarter as they get to work within their own pace and are not teased by anyone, which is usually observed in public and private schools.
