How Do You Describe Your Child Before School?
A child prior to joining a school largely remains raw and unprocessed but with immense potential and scope for development. Every child prior to schooling is a bundle of energy, undirected and disruptive. It is the job of a pre-school to direct that energy into constructive learning programs to unleash the talent in a child and put it to use. It is not a school that is important but what a school teaches which is important, thus if the fundamentals of learning are taught to a child at home, homeschooling would perhaps bring out the same qualities required in the development of a child.
The point is that it is not important to learn science, the arts, history or biology. Merely learning these subjects cannot develop a child into a civilized person, but the qualities that lie at the root of each discipline, these are important to develop the child into a wholesome being. Just as science is based on scientific temper, so the child must be trained to be curious, ask questions, test and observe and eventually apply it to every aspect of life. History is based on chronologically listed events. It is enough that the child learns how to maintain a diary and learns from the past. The art of learning isnt applicable only to teachers but a child must be open to learning from anyone, be it the vegetable seller who talks politely or the servant who is courteous and loyal in behavior. It is not something that is learnt just because traditional schooling demands it. It is something that a child learns from life, for life.
Prior to schooling a child is full of tears at the thought of leaving the parents, the child becomes inconsolable and uncontrollable when a new set of people replace the parents for a few hours. This usually is the teacher, and a group of children of the same age group. The child prior to reaching school has been in a closed and protected world of mother, father and sibling and family. It is not used to other people. Now is when the child learns to interact with people other than the family, share, face different opinions and different attitudes and learn to cope.
