  • Yes...if not it should...A child's home should be the 1st place the learning begin...

  • Absolutely! . I agree with mekarevell, a child's education begins at home. Unfortunately, in some families it isn't all good.

  • Very much so! But then again we homeschool so a lot of learning goes on at our house! LOL

  • Yes! Certainly. Especially "real world" stuff.. At times i wonder if school actually hinders learning a bit, once in school most kids dont want to stick out (be to smart/ dumb) and you really have to stay inside the box.. You have to learn at the same pace as everyone else. Not to fast/Not to slow... You learn the way the teacher decides to teach you... You have to learn whats on the schedule, not what you may be interested in at the moment..
    You also learn what the school wants you to learn. Sometimes the history books are just not accurate..

  • yes

  • Absolutely. Learning concepts like loving, being empathetic to animals, household responsibilities and helping siblings are not taught in school. And parents are an important part of reinforcing things taught in school.

  • Absolutely, esp. manners. I helped a kindegarten (sp) class one year, Please and Thank You were no where in their vocobulary. These are not things the school should be teaching our children manners, the parents need to do this at home and maybe the teacher can help re-enforce them. But let the teachers teach the ABC's, and let the parents help with the class work at home.
