Many families opt for homeschooling NYC. Despite not being recognized by New York legislation, there are real benefits to this system with respect to the traditional system.
Homeschooling, a growing trend in our country, already practiced by more than 4,000 children, has not yet been legalized. Specifically, it is an alternative to classroom training, where parents assume holistically the education of their children, in the transmission of knowledge, skills, values and principles.
5 BENEFITS OF HOMESCHOOLING
For many, the decision to educate their children at home is pedagogical: the need to respect each other’s learning times, boost their particular abilities and natural aptitudes, learn in real situations and awaken their interest, critical spirit and the taste for knowledge. This was revealed by a survey developed by experts. The benefits are numerous:
- IT’S FUN FOR PARENTS AND CHILDREN
By educating the father, he organizes activities outside the home, reads recommended books, puts his own ideas into action and can practice art together with his children.
Children can opt for alternative, often innovative, activities that are not part of the school curriculum.
- CHILDREN CAN EXPRESS THEIR ENTHUSIASM
The majority of children who are home-educated have particular passions, areas in which they excel. Very few of them are those that are learned in school, such as modern art, film analysis etc. Many times in schools different interests are dissuaded, due to lack of resources or teachers in the area.
- TEACHES CHILDREN HOW TO INTERACT WITH ADULTS
Children are often inhibited in front of adults, and in school, adults tend to discipline and impose respect, which often results in fear on the part of the child. On the other hand, homeschooling promotes equal interaction, allows observing and sharing with adults in community, creating a different link.
- IT FOSTERS A CLOSER BOND BETWEEN PARENTS AND CHILDREN
One of the strengths of homeschooling is the fact that children achieve their independence without the need to take their parents away when they are teenagers. They reflect and strengthen the bond, take responsibility for their formation and do not achieve their independence through conflict and rebellion.
- HELPS TO REAFFIRM FAMILY VALUES
Many values that are taught in the home can be lost in the school culture, where they can also teach values different from those instilled by parents.
