Homeschooling

What can make you decide to try homeschooling for your kids? Is homeschooling something that parents should seriously consider doing at home?

It says, “Homeschooling Is A Bad Idea.” I guess that would excuse him from being naïve and insensitive in his approach to the homeschooling method. But for me, the entirety of the video is a bit rude and somewhat untrue when it comes to homeschool teaching. Allow me to pinpoint some hits on the video and share with you why I disagree with most of them about homeschooling.

Homeschooling Overview

My personal issue with his statement is that he based “weirdness” on homeschooled individuals uninterested in shit. If those who are in the homeschooling method like stuff different from others, what gives people the right to say that being different is the same as being weird? Why am I weird if I don’t like homeschooling that much?

Aside from that, some children, especially those with autism, can’t always handle going to school compared to the homeschool method. That is why nobody should judge why some parents decide to try homeschooling their kids.

The problem with this statement about homeschooling is the audacity to say that people should go to school to get labeled. The offensive content creator said that even if an individual gets bullied because of his indifference, he should accept it because that can determine their role in life.

Why Homeschooling?

Regardless of whether children, teens, or any individuals who are into the homeschool method or not can still determine their stand on society. They do not have to get beaten up by other people only to know they are one of the nerds or one of the bullies. Homeschooling is seen by many parents to be safe as the children are just home.

Why the homeschool method?

The reason for that is the professional approach that teachers provide to the students compared to the not-so-focused, terror, or probably unapproachable ways of parent teaching during the homeschool method. But to say that parents are incapable of academically teaching kids and it is not anywhere near proper schooling, that’s partly offensive. Yes, some parents might not have a degree in teaching, but the way they homeschool or handle their kids’ learning can make a difference. But he didn’t try to note in his video about homeschooling what he thinks about when the parent is a teacher or other people who live in the house are academically teaching professionals.

What do you know about this method?

At this part, it becomes evident to me that the content creator does not know anything about homeschooling and its social interaction. When he said that kids or individuals doing the homeschool method are only sharing their life with their parents and siblings, that statement is not true.

Being into the homeschool method does not mean I have to isolate myself. Homeschooling is highly effective for many children.

Homeschooling And Social Anxiety

Yes, there might be some people out there who are dealing with social anxiety. But that does not generalize all of them who are socially anxious because they are homeschooling. So when he said that homeschooled individuals do not know how to act around other people, I’m not sure what kind of people he is talking about.

Final Thoughts

As someone who has been homeschooled for almost ten years of childhood, I must say the content creator created a poor example of trying and stopping people from it. Regardless of the declaimer, he sounded confident about what he was talking about, making everything a little off. Therefore, all the things he rants about why he thinks it is a bad idea are solely based on his closed-minded approach to it.
