Traditional schooling allows children of school age to learn cooperatively with their peers that may or may not have similarities or lifestyle, social economic status, religion and/ or parenting. This may some times cause issues for the students when they are made fun of because of their differences. However, i believe that this is somewhat healthy to the child's development, but not to the extent of bullying. To elaborate on what I'm saying is learning how to deal with life and challenges. We often want to shelter and baby our kids forever, but sadly, they need to see how the real world operates its not has rosey and sweet as they may think it is.
Home Schooling is a new approach to schooling. Instead of sending your child to school they are taught from home and do school work like traditional schools just at home. One as an educator, I think this is not good for kid's social development. They never truly interact with children their age until the home school circle have a field trip or some type of get together. They are on time constraints to get assignments done in order to finish a lesson. It shields them from the joy of building new friendships and puts all the responsibility on the parents. If the parent is a stay at home parent and don't have any other children, then this may work for them but for those who have other children, this will become a nightmare.
My children must go to school until I deem it as unsafe or otherwise less conducive to my kids growth development academically. I don't have the patience to teach my kids from home, cook dinner, wash, take care of bills, and all the other adult duties society has placed on us. School helps relieve parents and also benefits the child.
Would you choose home schooling or Traditional Schooling?
