NEGATIVE EFFECTS OF HOMESCHOOLING

The concept of “education in homeschools” from its onset has undergone many debates regarding the positive and negative effects of homeschooling. The concept of homeschool is based on personalized teaching for inculcating greater efficiency in a child. The efficiency quotient are successfully proved by many children who being taught at homeschools has shown enormous skills and knowledge compared to the children taught at public schools.

However, homeschools are not a smooth story of success only, there are dark patches in the shining character of homeschooling. So, it is important for you as a parent to know about both the positive and negative effects before you sign up for a home school program for your kid.

The Off-Putting Cons About Home School

Deficiency In Social Interaction

In a homeschool, the child is taught in the secluded atmosphere of a home, which hinders his or her social development. The child grows up without learning how to interact with other people in a society. Social communication is an important part of any individual’s life and childhood is the building stage of it. However, you can make it up by organizing social activities for your children.

Time Constrictions

In a home school the parents have to teach their child various subject matters as per requirements. If you are a working person then the time consumption may really drive you nuts. You have to postpone or leave your work to teach your child fully. You have to be with your child throughout his or her lessons and you have to spend more time correcting the worksheets or in making visuals.

Money Matters

A homeschooling program at a first glance is quite money saving without the stipulated requirements of a private or public school. But money problems do creep in when one of the marriage partners has to sacrifice his or her career for teaching the child. And giving up one’s career can be economically pressing for the whole family.

Home schools are good substitutes for traditional schools but still some people believe that homeschooling cannot be practicable for everyone. Homeschooling has its share of disadvantages.

After educating your child at home school for some time, your child has to be put back in the mainstream education. In this transformation your child may face problems, as he or she is not accustomed to the traditional educational environment.

When you decide to educate your child at homeschool it will mean going against the convention and you should be prepared to face the adversity of being different from tradition.

In a homeschool, you are the teacher and have to spend 24 hours with your child. There may be times when your child cannot understand a lesson as promptly as you want. Losing temper will not solve the problem but patience will. It is only normal for a kid to take his or her own time to comprehend the lesson fully. Moreover, if you act like some bore your child may lose interest in lessons. Always try to make the lessons fun and amusing for your kid.

Now weigh the pros and cons of homeschooling and decide the best for your child.
