The Pros and Cons of Homeschooling

When it comes to deciding on homeschooling your children, there are many things to consider. Many parents are going this way but often have a hard time deciding if they should continue the home school education. There are things you need to think about when it comes to making a tough decision such as this one. Here are some pros and cons of homeschooling your child to help you decide if it is the right way to go for both your child and even you.

Pros:

Individual Attention for Teaching

One good thing about homeschooling your children is that you can give them the individual teaching they need. This will help them with their studying and help keep their grades in a good place because they won’t have to fight over the teacher’s attention. This will also help you with their essay service and writing services when it comes to teaching your own children to write essays.

Safety

With many school violences going on, if your child is homeschooled, you will be assured of their safety. This is because they will be with you at all times and you won’t have to worry every day if something is going to happen to them.

Cons:

Lack of Social Interaction

One problem with homeschooling your child is that they will not have the social interaction they need and would get if they were in a public school. Many find that student engagement is a valuable part of learning, which you don’t get at home. One thing you can do about this, however, is take them to the park to play with other children after their school session is over.

Missed Experiences

Another problem with homeschooling your children is that they will miss certain experiences they can get from going to a regular school. This means they will not be able to make friends and build those friendships. They will also miss field trips that they would normally get to go to if they were going to school. However, parents can also take their children on field trips themselves so their children won’t miss out on these experiences.

  1. I kind of like the idea of homeschooling. Parents getting the first hand at a child’s education is a good idea as the parents know the child more and can give the proper attention compared to a teacher handling several kids. I think a more personal approach is beneficial, particularly in the early part of the education process…plus the fact that since the child has to only finish modules, he or she can engage more in other activities such as sports and that takes care of the social interaction part.

  2. hmn… i would still prefer the regular school…. i just think there’s more things a kid learn from the other activities and interaction outside the classroom too…. and growing up that way, i say i had really childhood years because of the experiences i had from school… 🙂

  3. Homeschooling will be much applicable when moms stay at home. This way you can really see and focus on your child’s education. I am thinking of this too but since meron naman school a few steps from our house, para na din na-homeschool anak ko. Hehe

  4. I have considered homeschooling my kids but at the moment I rather they have some interaction with other kids in school then staying home with me. I supplement what they learn in school instead.

  5. I’m homeschooling my 3yrs 10mos old daughter since we’re not financially ready to put her in school this year. She’s advanced anyway, but you’re right, social interaction is needed. She gets tired easily when I teach her or show her some things to write. Insha Allah God willing next year, maging stable na kami. Visiting from CommEx Sept18.

  6. I homeschooled my children during their pre-school years. They did not lack social interaction then because we always have a lot of kids coming to our house. I believe they did miss some of the things that can only be experienced in school though those were not necessarily that bad.

    • I’m actually missing homeschooling my kids. But I see them enjoying school programs and looking forward to going to school everyday so I guess we did make the right decision to send them to formal preschool.

  7. Regular schooling is just for me and for my children hopefully. Socialization is very important for ones growth. 🙂
