Homeschooling works with no rules. Yes, it gives you full academic flexibility, where you are your own boss. You can arrange things per your time and availability. You have to be a little serious, though.
Unlike schools and colleges, you are taking care of your kids. Homeschooling offers one-on-one tutoring, allowing you to focus more on your kids’ education than any other institutions. Students will also focus more on their studies than other activities.
Homeschooling provides a familiar environment for kids and students. Students will be able to think more independently, as they will not be asked to attend regular periods or get to school on time, etc. They will become more independent in their studies, which develops good critical thinking skills. It also develops a great maturity level in the students, so they can tackle things smoothly.
Most students get bored during school hours. Nobody wants to remain seated for eight long hours daily to learn new things. Per various studies, over 75% of students don’t feel like attending schools; however, they love to study on their own, as all the resources are available physically and virtually. Homeschooling eradicates boredom and offers a great learning environment.
During homeschooling, students are involved more in learning rather than doing homework. There is a limited amount of homework given to homeschooling children by their parents. Since there is less homework, there will be no burden or stress on their shoulders.
Better Engagement with Society
Some parents still believe that homeschooling keeps their children away from society, but that is not true. In fact, children learn how to keep themselves engaged with society while learning at home. They are more flexible at study and hence have enough time to socialise and remain active in the community. Parents also have to teach their children how to maintain socialisation.
Enough Study Time
Schools and colleges have to follow a strict schedule where specific times are allowed for each subject. While homeschooling, there is no set time to study. You can have enough time to finish your chapter or worksheet or whatever subject you work on.
Increased Family Attachment
Attachment with the family is crucial in today’s modern world. When children stay home and learn things with homeschooling, the attachment between parents and kids will be increased. The bond, which is very much needed during the pandemic, will become stronger.
Improves Mental Health
Most parents complain about the weird behaviour of their kids when they come home from school or college. It is because of the extra burden of study. Apart from this, they have to spend their time doing homework and other activities. They feel like caged animals whose duty is to follow the teacher’s guidelines.
On the other hand, things are different with homeschooling. It offers a free environment to study, and grow together.
