positive development?


[shc_shortcode class=”shc_mybox”]Boarding schools have been extensively debated – some consider them great boosters of a
child’s all round development, and some as instruments of neglect of children’s emotional
needs. Nowadays boarding schools are becoming very popular. This essay shall probe into
the causes of this phenomenon and also discuss whether this trend is good or bad.

People send their children to boarding schools for a number of reasons. Some parents who
work overseas or travel frequently choose to put their children in boarding school because
they know how inconsistent they will be in parenting or in providing for the needs of their
kids. Other parents choose boarding school for their children as a way for them to
experience more of the world and to learn how to interact with diverse people from a young
age. Still other parents put their children and teens in boarding school if they are having
trouble disciplining their kids or keeping them out of trouble. Finally in this age of dual-
income nuclear families, a child’s life and development often takes place in rather
unsuitable circumstances and boarding schools can be a great place for children to be in.

Seen in such a light, the option of a boarding school is very good. After all, these schools are
not just about studies – they also give a child time and exposure to a lot of other things like
sports and art. Also, children in such schools are more likely to have stronger bonds with
their friends, since they spend a lot of time together.

Of course, there are drawbacks such as homesickness. Moreover, children in residential
schools have fewer day-to-day interactions with their family, and significantly less time to
spend with their parents during their formative years. As a result, many parents who placed
their kids in boarding schools fail to develop a close bond with their children.

To put it in a nutshell, I pen down saying that we cannot say whether the trend is positive or
negative. It depends on an analysis the child’s needs and the circumstances of the family.
Also, it is generally advisable not to send a very young child to boarding school.Nowadays sending children to boarding school (either in other countries
