Social Concerns Of Homeschooling 203



Social concerns of​ homeschooling
Social skills is​ an​ area of​ deep concern when it​ comes to​
homeschooling .​
Many critics point out that since man needs to​ hone
his social skills,​ a​ homeschooling environment where social
interaction is​ limited is​ detrimental to​ his growth and
development .​
But studies have proved this wrong.
Children put into the​ fiercely competitive school environments
lack the​ confidence to​ hold a​ conversation .​
Such children show
little genuine interest in​ the​ topic of​ conversation and don't
know how to​ interact with people of​ various age groups,​
especially their elders .​
Children who learn at​ home are more aware of​ the​ implications and
the purpose of​ their learning .​
They will ask intelligent questions
and make accurate observations .​
Children begin their life by
imitating their parents .​
Homeschooled children therefore pick
up the​ sterling qualities they see in​ their parents .​
On the​ other
hand,​ they are protected from the​ detrimental influences of​ their
peers.
These children are thus better equipped with the​ tools necessary
to face the​ world .​
The positive reinforcement that takes place
in the​ homeschooling environment as​ opposed to​ being abandoned,​
embarrassed or​ ignored in​ a​ normal school environment strengthens
their self-esteem .​
Children turn out to​ be better balanced and
well-rounded as​ they progress into adulthood.
