Home School v/s Private School
I wouldn’t recommend home schooling to any parent, I would rather send my child/children to regular school instead, all because to me your child doesn’t learn anything from sitting at home getting taught from the parents. Not saying that the parents are not teaching them anything, but that they need to be around more people. Attending regular school have your child/children around more siblings their age and not just be around the parents all the time.
A parent as I read has to be mastered in order to home school their children/child. Really I don’t have the patience to home school any child, not even mine. A parent has to make sure they have the skills to help their child receive quality education that they deserve, like they get from school. The teachers at school are more experienced than parents. They have a degree in that field and they know how to deal with children better than parents do. By teaching your child at home it will limit their scope of knowledge, and plus they won’t learn everything that the government expects for them to learn. Actually some parents don’t know what the teachers know in school and I can say that I am one of those parents. My wife mother thought about homeschooling at one point when my sister-n-laws were small, but she changed her mind. She said that she wouldn’t be able to teach them the things that the teachers teach and she didn’t have the patience and time they had either. We as parents probably wouldn’t know how to explain the work in the right way and that would cause children to learn wrong things in the wrong way.
Another thing is the matter of socialization factors. They need to interact with other children. They will be slow at learning what the other children learn in school. That will have them moving slow in the world. You have to know certain things in life and without attending school will leave you high and dry, clueless in the world. They need to know other people...
