I didn't see any thread on this topic so I thought I'll start a new one. I was just wondering if anyone here has thought of home schooling their children or are currently practicing this. This practice is very common overseas but hardly heard of here in M'sia. I know of a couple from Klang who sent both their kids to a public school until Std 6 and home school after. Both kids are exceeding expectations academically and has loads of time to join other activities (learning piano, joining various sports etc). They love home schooling!!!

I honestly don't know much about this (especially since I don't have kids of my own yet) but I would like to know some of your thoughts (good or bad or both). In my mind, I can think of a lot of cons. One of which is lack of socialization skills (but my friends 2 kids don't seem to have this problem). :roll: On a plus side (based on talks with the mum), kids don't come home with bad habits and they learn more values (among other stuffs she told me but i can't really remember them all now).

So let me know your thoughts :wink:

Home schooling does not necessarily mean you and your child are isolated at home.
Until they loose all their social skills.
People who home schooled their kids will naturally tell you all the success stories.
Which parent will want to tell their friends that their kids turn out to be idiots.
After being home schooled by them. :P

There are many Christian missionaries that promotes home schooling.
Many uses the American syallabus.
It can be as pricey as attending a private school.
Definitely more costly than attending Sekolah Kebangsaan.
Just google Malaysia Home schooling.
You can find wealth of info on the subject.

This is interesting, i think depends how well the parent can provide home schooling but myself still prefer sending my kid to sch bcoz beside knowledge , to me , is a chance for us to learn how to mix with others (especially if it is a mix sch with other races) during sch time, how to think n differentiate themselves what should pick up and what shouldn't.. how to study human nature.. how should we play in a group .. moral.. polite.. etc i think a lots we can learn in sch, sometimes it is just not knowledge from book or bonus skill (like piano.. badminton)..i believe in future we cant survive in the world only our own family anyway..

Common misconception of home schooling is that the child will not be out of the house mixing/socialising with others. The children can still go to enrichment classes, swimming, art classes and other social events (like birthday parties) to pick those up. The child can learn greetings, moral, politeness when he/she is at the shop to buy groceries alone. Going to school does not guarantee that you will mix/socialise with other races either you know. :)

There are different type of homeschoolers as debated over the years.
- those kids that don't go to school but are sent to home schooling centres.
- those kids that are undergoing un-schooling period.
- those kids that are being homeschooled by their parents full time at home.
( either to follow a program , such as A Beka, ATI, Alpha Omega, Sonlight, CCC, or just mix & match)

There are families doing that already in Setia Alam just that they do that in a low profile approach and have their own support groups with other home-schooler parents in Klang Valley.

ya, i've been hearing more and more of this... and i'm interested to know as well...

actually, is this considered legal since my understanding is that our govt requires every children to attend 'school'.

also, what about 'certification'... as in taking exams. how does that work with home schooling?

There is a facebook group for those interested in homeschooling. Here's the link: https://www.facebook.com/#!/groups/MHsNetwork/
My almost 3yr old has joined a playgroup every Fridays but it's all the way in damansara. I was just wondering if there's any pre-school playgroups in Setia Alam that we can join. If there isn't, wanna start a group? It can be simple things like an outing in the Setia Alam park, the Shah Alam library, the science centre, etc. Or we can gather at a house and sing songs or learn some baisc phonics or finger painting etc. Let me know if anyone's interested k?
