Homeschooling is when parents opt to have their children receive their education at home as opposed to them being enrolled into institutions that offer the educational services. Some merits come with being taught at home. These include:
FREE CHOICE OF TEACHING METHODS
The parent can employ the method of teaching that is best suited to how their child can learn. This makes theprocess of learning easy and therefore fun for the child.
BONDING BETWEEN PARENT AND CHILD
Homeschooling allows the parent and their child to bond better because of the amount of time they get to interact throughout the day.
ABILITY TO CHOOSE THE CURRICULUM TAUGHT
The parent can dictate their child’s learning schedule and the curriculum that will be used to facilitate the process of learning.
ABILITY OF PARENT TO DICTATE HOW TIME IS PUT TO USE IN LEARNING
Homeschooling allows for the parent to spend the needed extra time on concepts that their child might be having trouble grasping until the child masters the subject well.
Children enrolled at institutions of learning have to follow a fixed schedule that works to benefit all students equitably. Studying at home allows the parent and child to work flexibly so as not to inconvenience any other important things to be taken care of.
INTERACTION BETWEEN PARENT AND CHILD
The child gets to have a one on one and personal communication with their father who teaches them, unlike many students who have to share one teacher at their school. This is beneficial to the kids.
When it comes to off days, vacations can be determined by the parents.The children who are home schooled can go on vacations with their parents even when public schooling is still going on.
DEVELOPMENT AND NURTURING OF TALENTS
Parents who take their child to homeschool can put in the time to assist them in developing their skills. These talents may be in the sports or musical fields.
PROTECTION AGAINST RAMAPANT GUN VIOLENCE CASES IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS
Children who are homeschooled are protected against violence that pertains to public schooling. There have been several documented cases of gun violence where a student takes a firearm into the school, and guns down fellow students and staff.
PARENT CAN DETERMINE THE ETHICAL AND RELIGIOUS CONCEPTS TO TEACH
