The Many Benefits Of Home Schooling

Nov 25, 2007
When home schooling children, the learning is not only from the parent teacher but then each member of the family contributes to the education of that child. In a home school set-up, that bond and special relationship with the children are further intensified and strengthened. The home school curriculum is very much flexible enabling the parent to develop learning while at the same time nurturing love. Parents know their children best and are always in the best position to serve as their teachers.

Taking on that decision of pursuing home schooling instead of entrusting your child's education to the public or private school system is not easy but knowing the numerous benefits home schooling brings can significantly influence your decision on whether or not to pursue a home school education.

In a home school set-up, your child will get your full attention one on one instead of being in a large size class where there are issues concerning your child's education needs not being addressed fully.

As you know your child best inside and out, you as the parent are in the best position to tailor his or her lessons accordingly to his or her needs. This could never be possible in a conventional classroom setup. You basically have the option to either undertake a home school curriculum package or would prefer to take an unstructured approach creating an individualized curriculum where the subjects taught are based on the child's interest, development and learning capabilities.

Home schooling is ideal for children who are very much prone to peer pressure. Being in full control of his or her curricular activities as well as daily social activities assures you that he or she is getting the right influences from friends that you know are a good influence on him or her.

There are many children who have been mistakenly branded as having learning difficulties or disabilities when all they needed was a different approach to learning. You are in the best position to determine your child's particular needs and requirements if he or she ever falls in such a category.

There have been numerous scientific studies that indicate that home schooled children achieve more success in the academics as compared to their traditional schooled counterparts. There may be other factors though that can affect such. Contrary to what most people think, research has also indicated that home schooled children are equipped with better social skills.

Home schooling helps build family ties. Home school plans usually involves family activities from the shared chores to the educational games and projects that enable them to devote quality time with each other.

There are convincing reasons on why home schooling is a viable option over traditional schooling. Home schooling benefits are merely restricted by the teaching parent's creativity and imagination. Home schooling can give you the best of both worlds. You get to spend quality time with your child building a stronger relationship while at the same time giving your child the best education possible knowing that you will only provide the best.
