Children of America have some of the greatest opportunities when it comes to education. Yet somehow in the period of ages four to eighteen, a handful of the children lose their chance at a greater education. This can be linked to a possible learning deficiency, which was not caught early enough. One solution to problem of not noticing a learning problem early is putting most, if not all, four-year-old children in preschool. The problem with putting four-year-olds in preschool is a number of parents cannot afford to send their child to preschool.
Preschool is an option, but because of the state of the economy, it has forced both of the parents to seek full-time employment, they have no choice. With many children living in a single parent families, the custodial parent may have to work to support the family. Parents who are professionals and want to stay in position as well as raise a family need child care while they are at work (Kranyik 91). The modern nursery school has changed the mold from when it was first introduced. It is centered more around education than daycare.
In the book The Glass Castle, author Jeanette Walls discovers the idea that a conservative education may possibly not always be the best education due to the fact that the Walls children were taught more from the experiences their parents gave them than any regular school or textbook could give them. In this novel readers are able to get an indication of how the parents Rex and Rosemary Walls, choose to educate and give life lessons to their children to see the better side of their daily struggles. Jeannette and her siblings were left without a proper education due to the fact of their parents' weird way living. The Walls children were always moving from place to place because of Rex and Rosemary. Parent interaction in their children's educational learning has a big effect in the ending.
I believe daycares are the most important and healthiest way for a child to grow up with social, physical, and emotional strengths. There are so many parents who do not believe in putting their child in a daycare, which is why some kids do not know how to communicate properly with other children their age by the time they are five. It doesn’t matter if it is an in-home daycare or a public daycare, every child needs some type of engagement with other children their
If kids have the incentives for going to school or free schooling, the world would see many more getting a good education and making their way out of poverty filled life. One of the hardest challenges of getting kids into schools is the cost. Many parents who live on less than $1.25 a day do not have the funds to pay for their kids to go to school. Often if they do have a little extra money they are more likely to send the males to school over the females. This is because the females are viewed as the homemaker and that is how the parents grew up, so they are passing this tradition on to their kids.
In life you don’t learn a lot when everything is constantly being handed to you. Children who are raised by stay at home moms are not as prepared for the real world as those who are raised by working women. Although both mothers do work, working mothers tend to have better mental stability knowing they have more of a purpose in society. Being raised by a single mother that had to bring in money to keep the family on their feet, there was never a time that a staying home was an option. Staying at home and having your child makes them way more dependent on someone else.
Children in preschool learn social skills like respect for authority, listening, and sharing; they also benefit from interaction with peers, which results in improved language and relational skills. Unfortunately, many parents simply cannot afford the expensive cost of private preschools, and there are few other options. Children are valuable as the future of the country, but the government has largely ignored them. Whether at the federal or state level, the government needs to create a free preschool available to all families. Changing demographics in America are leading to an increased need for preschools.
Children that have already developed the skill of a sense of independence and un-attachment from their parents have an easier time for transition when entering kindergarten and being away from home during the school day. Jennifer Cerbasi from Fox News suggests, “Children who s... ... middle of paper ... ...onomy. Day care can be a positive option for parents seeking help with child care. It is self-assuring for many parents that are struggling to raise a family while balancing job security, to know that there are a variety of options out there for the watching of children. As with any difficult task, the monitoring of child safety concerns should stay primarily as a parent’s number one responsibility and concern.
Parents started sending their kids to daycare centers, so they can take their time to earn more money. However, could daycares really care? A lot of people think daycares can give children better lives, but others believe daycares will never raise children healthily. Hence, do children in daycare have more developmental problems? Although some children in daycare do not suffer developmental problems, many do suffer problems due to reason like less individual attention, negative influences and a more distance relationship with parents.
With one teacher and an average of 20 students in a classroom, it can be hard to give students the one-on-one attention that they need (Fitzgerald). The student-teacher ratio according to Fitzgerald is “3.5 students over the maximum necessary for a quality education”. If the students are not able to get the personal help in kindergarten that they need than they may not be ready for first grade by the end of the year. As kindergarten continues to require more of students, preschool becomes a necessary prerequisite. However, since preschool is not currently required or funded by the government in all places, many students don’t have access to this valuable resource.
