Homecomings is the education of children at home, rather than other formal settings of public or private schools. Homecomings can affect a child negatively in some cases. Some of the effects Include lack of social Interaction, too much protection from the parents and Limited exposure to extra curricular actively. One of the negative effects of homecomings Is that It decreases the ability of the child to Interact socially with others.
As stated by John 2012, “homecomings do not teach homelessness how to interact with peers and authoritative figures”. Homelessness are less exposed to other people compared to those who get a formal setting of education. Also, they lack of communication skills with children from different backgrounds (Mead 2009). Other than that, homelessness get too much protection from their parents, making it hard for them to adapt in real life situations without their parents protection.
Parents must realize they can protect their children forever ( Family Education 2012). According to Schroeder 2011, real life situations are introduced at schools such as bullying, teasing and public humiliation are a part of life. Children from homeless may suffer from culture shock when dealing with real life situation (Family Education 2012). Next, another negative effect of homecomings Is the Limited exposure of homelessness on extra curricular activities.
Homesteaded children lack the diverse enrichment activities(Mead 2009). They are also not exposed in group works such as team sports amid performing art clubs as mentioned by Family Education 2012. In conclusion, there are many disadvantages of homecomings that could have a negative effect on children. Therefore, parents should think wisely before sending their children to homeless because it lacks of social interaction, too much protection from parents and has limited exposure to extra curricular activities.
