Some parents choose to educate their children at home. Why is this， and what are some of the benefits and disadvantages?
There are a number of people prefer to teach their children by themselves though it is not common. Could children gain a lot, or just lose the chance of being educated well? In my essay, I will analyze the reasons for why some parents rather their children study at home, and indicate the merits and drawbacks.
Initially, in my opinion, it is personal concept that causes this phenomenon. Some adults are high education level. Possessing rich knowledge, they think that they can fully competent in imparting knowledge, and their children can have the one-to-one tuition. Apart from this, if the family is living in a remote village, or somewhere only having few schools and places, parents would educate their next generation at home.
Surely, children being taught at home can benefit from this approach. Unlike studying in a big class, where teacher is impossible to pay attention to every student, a child receiving education at home is the only focus of the parents. They make the most appropriate teaching plan for their children, and good learning effects are often guaranteed. Also, it reduces the time and energy which waste on commuting. Children may find it more efficient to learn.
Staying away from schools has disadvantages though. First, the biggest problem is that parents are not versatile. They cannot master knowledge in every aspect. It is therefore study-at-home children could not touch as more subjects as their school counterparts. Second, parents would use unsuitable inculcated methodology because of lack of formal training. Third, it would render children isolated. Far apart from schools, they have few chances to play with their peers, which could obstruct the development of interpersonal skill.
To conclude, parents do not sent their children to schools for reasons, privately and socially. And while it has some obvious advantages, I think disadvantages are significantly outweighed.
