Parents don’t have to show how their child is performing academically, some parents only have a high school diploma or less, and homeschooled children are missing an important element of life because they aren’t learning or participating in class discussions or activities in a classroom setting. Some people argue that homeschooling is the way to go, because parents have more choices. Some families who homeschool believe that homeschooling is better than school, because regular school is government mandated, so the government determines what is necessary for children to be learning. These families get to choose what they think is critical for their child to learn and they think that all families have the right to define what their child is learning and that they should have complete control. A few families choose to homeschool because they want to decide what kind of education their child is getting and base it around their religious beliefs, because they think that schools have become too separated from religion.
Students should not be homeschooled because it affects the child’s socials skills, having lower social skills, and parents as teachers. Over 2 million children are homeschooled today. Homeschooling is when parents teach their children curriculum at home instead of sending them out to a public or private school. Most parents today homeschool because of they are concerned for the environment of schools, but some parents don’t realizes that keeping your child at home could hinder them even more than putting the child in a private or public school. Children who are being homeschooled usually have less social skills then children who are in public school.
Nowadays, manny parents choose homeschooling for their children beside public school, because they feel that most of learning atmosphere at public school does not prioritize the student need. The age when a childrens may stop going to school varies from sixteen to eighteen (Aasen, 2010). But actually, homeschool it is not a better choice for the children because, while those who oppose that homeschooling
With most schools just passing kids through school instead of taking the time to actually teach them, they are not doing society a favor because these kids have no skills to bring to society to better it. Homeschooliing provides the personal With the ever growing population of kids being homeschooled it is no surprise that more people are starting to realize the benefits of homeschooling and seeing it as an positive alternative to public schools. Some states are having problems with regulations, but most are doing just fine with the adjustment. Homeschooling is a good idea because of religious issues, its success on standardized tests, and the options open to kids who are homeschooled.
At home, students are the focal point of the instructor and not lost in the crowd in a classroom of 25 or more other kids. Homeschooled kids advance at their own pace which is clearly to their advantage whether they are fast or slower learners in particular subjects. Critics of homeschooling usually point out the lack of socialization skills learned at public schools which is a valid concern but quality time with parents is important as well and is also productive time for the student. Parents are in control of the subject material and control the topics. This is a definite advantage for the homeschooled child.
In a public school setting, teachers do not have the flexibility time to do this with each and every child. However, many people think that this type of education a child will not receive a well-rounded learning experience. A one-on-one education really is a child with special attention they need to grow as a person. This is just one benefit of homeschooling your child. Homeschooled children are self-motivated because they have a desire to know about a subject instead of finding something just to pass a test.
Home Schooling Provides Parents More Control For most students, school begins with the first bell of the day and ends with the last, but for 228 pupils in the Smallville school district and roughly 1.5 million nationwide, the structure of a typical school day is anything but typical. These are home-schooled students, and their reasons for dropping out of standard educational systems are almost as varied as the hours which they keep. While some families want more time together, others focus on the special needs of children, and still others hope to instill values that they feel are not addressed in public or even private schools. Nearly all seek more control over the education of their children. "With home schooling, you can take your child's learning style and develop curriculum that fits how your child learns best.
Home-schooling a child could be a very good decision if a child had special needs. Teaching them at home would enable the parents to monitor the development of the child and make sure they don't fall behind and are completely ready to move on to the next level of learning, where they might fall behind in a public learning institution. The parent(s) could offer the child extremely individualized attention that is much harder to find in a public school with large numbers of students, many who also have special needs. Home schooling is also a good choice for family?s who want to truly have control over what their children are taught. Possibly more religious families would want to make sure that in addition to the subjects they have to teach by law, that they teach their children about religion and other things they find important.
Consequently, it makes their children miss out essential social skills. They would not have the same skills that children who study at traditional schools have because they do not study with a group that help them to learn important skills to interact with others.

For these reasons, traditional schools have many positive impacts on students.
First, is that children who are homeschooled miss out on the opportunity to make memories and create relationships with other kids. Liza Blau writer for Our Everyday Life states in her article Social Disadvantages of Home Schooling that, “forming close friendships and socializing with other children is vital for the development of your child’s social skills and overall emotional health.” Children who are home schooled will miss out on creating memories like school dances, lunch conversations and recess, which allow children to grow and learn how to create friendships with others. Next, homeschool parents also ignore how beneficial it is for students to have elective classes, such as sewing, cooking, art and physical education. These elective classes help students have experiences in a wide variety of classes so they can develop talents that they might have not known they had. Ernie Rambo a writer for Center For Teaching Quality explains in his article Why Electives Matter that elective classes reveal the skill sets of some students that other classes may not have been able to bring out.
