One of the fundamental concerns of any family is the education of children. We carefully chose the children's school to ensure that they receive the best training and in the best environment. The option of a boarding school is one of the many options for our children to study. We analyze the advantages and disadvantages of boarding schools for children.
Advantages of boarding schools for children
Boarding schools are private schools where children study and live. In some cases the child is only interned during the week and can go on weekends to spend with the family, but most of the time the child stays at school throughout the school period.
- Excellent training: The main advantage of internships is quality in training. Supposedly, the interns offer a better academic preparation thus facilitating their professional future.
- Coexistence with other children: But sending the child to study at a boarding school offers many other advantages such as living with children of his age, the autonomy he develops by not being dependent on the parents and the discipline of study required this type of schools.
- They value the effort more: In addition, the amount of extracurricular activities and to be in contact at all times with the teaching staff, makes the child get used to valuing the effort and to develop his physical and intellectual capacities to the maximum.
Disadvantages of internships for children
- Price: Logically, not all are advantages in internships. Their high price makes for the vast majority of families not even an option when looking for a school, but money is not the main disadvantage. Están - They are far from their family:
The child who is educated in a boarding school has almost guaranteed an excellent academic training, but we must not forget that he lives most of the year outside the family. That can cause a strong uprooting and emotional problems thinking that it is not a dear child. No - They do not serve as punishment: There are also no advantages when using boarding schools as a
method of punishment for troubled children. It has been proven that a child with behavioral problems does not improve when entering an internal school, but rather the opposite. We must not forget that children need a good education, the best we can give them, but our role as parents is also to give them all the love. The debate moves to the need to be in daily contact with the child living day to day with him or send him to a boarding school with the hope that he has a better future. Laura Vélez.
