Homeschooling has been a heated controversity in recent years. It is undeniable that homeschooling brings children a wealth of benefist. However, in my opinion, this issue has many negative effects on child's development, the ability to learn and the finance.
First and foremost, it is easily seen that homeschooling is detrimental to a child's development. Under parent's education at home, children have been isolated for most of their lives. This one-to-one tutoring allows children study and communicate only with their parents, not others people such as friends or teachers. This can drive home-schooler to be an anti- social personality and lack of social skills and seriously cannot adapt to a struggling life when getting out of home without parent's protecction. Ultimately, children will develop with a narrow circle of friends and social relationships and tend to flop in their own lives.
Secondly, though homeschooling is considered as the top ranked educating method, many people still suspect about children's ability to learn. In fact, many parents, who directly guide children, do not have sufficient knowledge or experience to satisfy children's demands. Whereas, children learning at schools are received the better education programs that are created by Ministry of Education and Training and put into practice all over country. As a consequence, the child's proficiency will be lack of knowledge in some fields.
The last effect is about the finance. As we can see, parents have to invest not only the time but also a great amount of money in homeschooling so the financial difficulties are unavoidable. Indeed, the fees in public school are much more cheaper than that spending on tutor fee, books, ect in homeschooling. Moreover, many people have to give their jobs to keep an eye on children's homeschooling process.Therefore, it places a heavy burden on parents who decide to teach children at home.
In conclusion, one-to-one tutoring contains visible harmful impacts on children's development, ability and finance. So, parents should have an all-round look on this issue to gain a wise decision for children.
