Home schooling is preferred by some parents. Some parents want to make
sure that their child is getting all the schooling needed even though he
is staying and learning at home instead of learning inside the classroom.
They believe that they are able to control the curriculum better.
Moreover, they want to impart their own values that are necessary in
molding a child. They are also focused on teaching deeper subjects that
they believe are significant to his learning. There is also a belief that
they can slow down when the child is having difficulty and spend more
time on these subjects. In this way, the child has a better chance of
learning the harder lessons.

You can be there to guide your child in some topics and issues that could
be easily misinterpreted when explained in school by teachers or other
classmates. In terms of social interactions, home schooling has developed
good benefits. Thoughtful parents nowadays have considered home schooling
as a solution to their child’s learning needs. The number of children
learning at home is continually increasing. But apart from the benefits,
there are also drawbacks.

Let us first discuss the benefits that one can get from home schooling.
First and foremost is control, the control on what to learn, what to
teach and what to encourage in your child’s mind. Some parents say that
some schools, private or public, have a lack of input and control that a
parent has over his or her child’s educational needs. Some parents think
that they can provide a better standard and quality of education through
home schooling. They can teach their children on the subjects and areas
which they feel are appropriate for their children to learn. These
parents feel there is a lack of quality education in school and that
there are many factors that could be the cause of this. These factors
could be the curriculum, the teaching staff, as well as the teaching
methods.
Moreover, they are afraid that their child is exposed to a wide range of
children his own age but with different backgrounds and upbringings. They
are afraid that classmates might influence their children have parents
who do not hold the same values. In addition, home schooling is less
expensive than enrolling your children in private schools which require
high tuition fees. Every year tuition fees get higher and these expenses
will only increase. For these reasons, some families prefer home
schooling rather than enrolling in private schools. They believe that
home schooling creates more bonding interactions between the parents and
their children. With this, the child may never feel neglected and
abandoned in any way.

Some drawbacks to home schooling is that some children can find it quite
isolating, so it is important to include some form of socializing for
your child. Be it after school clubs or sports. Also, as a parent you
will have to be disciplined to ensure your child receives the education
they deserve and do not fall behind in any of the curriculum subjects.
There will be exams to sit and papers to mark, which have to be submitted
for review.
If conducted in a thorough and organized fashion, home schooling can be
beneficial for both parent and child.
