Having healthy children is every parent’s priority. Homeschooling has become a trend lately, but it has pros and cons. This article considers the impact.
Remote working has changed, perhaps forever, the way companies and employees work together. Likewise, homeschooling has begun to create a shift in the way public education is approached.
From planning the day to creating meals for the kids, there are positive aspects of the hybrid model that combines home education with public school. This article considers the impact of home education and the potential future impacts on public education in the United States.
At the moment, both are considered separately. If restrictions make home education a necessity, then it happens. When conditions are favorable, children return to school. There doesn’t seem to be a middle ground between the two.
Yet, even before the pandemic, there was discussion about creating hybrid school environments for children. The hybrid model offers options for parents unsure of sending children back to school before the pandemic is truly under control. There are undoubtedly pros and cons. However, the fusion of the two environments can potentially combine the best of both worlds.
One of the main aspects of successful homeschooling is to create structure and routines, especially for the most demanding palates. This includes everything from different subjects to planning the kids’ meals to lunch at home.
Homeschooling also offers parents the opportunity to integrate different types of education into their child’s curriculum. An example of this is the opportunity it offers to families from minorities to learn about their unique cultural history.
Homeschooling is also more individualized to fit the way each child learns best. Likewise, it is also possible to focus more on the weak subjects of the child. An entire morning can be devoted to math, for example, instead of fitting everything into a larger class.
By mixing digital, paper and hands-on activities, a lot of variety can be created at home. Even from a dietary perspective, home education allows parents with fussy eaters to manage their children’s nutrition in a way that is impossible with school meals.
There are adjustments for homeschoolers to make. Keeping kids focused on schoolwork can be tricky with toys, siblings, and other distractions around.
Maintaining a good balance between exercise and diet is also important at home. Healthy children are much better equipped to learn effectively.
Parents should also be sure to take the costs of home education into account. These are mostly financial, but they also consider the impact on other siblings and their own work-life balance. Considering individual learning levels is especially important with children of different ages or abilities.
