Homeschooling or home learning methods are still often misunderstood by some in our society. Many think this home study method is just a learning solution for children with special needs as well as busy celebrities. The fact is that homeschooling can be followed by all people because it is an education that is given in a non-traditional way as is given to general education in schools.
The materials and curriculum provided in homeschooling are the same as in public schools. The difference is that homeschooling does not have a strict structure in primary education, but if done correctly, homeschooling children can still develop themselves completely and completely based on a more natural atmosphere and adapt to the environment.
Every family has certain considerations for choosing to homeschool for their children. Then is it true that the selection of homeschooling is a means to prepare for a better future? Some of the benefits and advantages of homeschooling that parents consider are as follows:
Knowing Children’s Talents From An Early Age
Optimization of talents and interests can be done early so that children know where the future is going. Homeschooling is the best way to fulfill the unique and different human nature.
Not left behind in material
In addition to the same material as the curriculum in public schools, the effectiveness of time after completing the curriculum material can be used to direct talents and interests to be more specific.
Learning Is More Fun
Unlike public schools that learn with a one-way and watch system. With homeschooling children have a more fun way of learning, because it is more likely to allow children to become lifelong learners.
For example, the costs spent in public schools (pocket money, catering, pick-up, school fees) can be allocated for more varied facilities such as a safari park, a planetarium, buying books, and facilitating tools according to their talents and interests.
Children Are on the Right Way
Parents are concentrated on their children’s talents and interests, which of course is difficult for teachers in public schools to do.
Take Care And Control Children
Things that are not good are often obtained by children from socializing at school. For example, such as eating, smoking, hanging out. With homeschooling, parents have full access to control their children to interact and hang out with.
Children Can Get Along With All Groups
There is an opinion that homeschooling children become less sociable, this is not true because children who homeschool are not separated with whom they interact. He can be included in the homeschool group and can still take part in extracurriculars, sports clubs, and others whose effects he can interact with anyone.
Of the various advantages of the method of learning children through homeschooling, of course, there are many things that need to be considered because homeschooling is basically not difficult but also not exactly easy. There are many considerations that must be carefully considered before deciding to homeschool our children, considering that we are planning for their future.
