The peers of the child - not only bright sides.
For normal development, every child needs constant contacts with their peers. Parents who decide to home schooling for their children are often immediately under severe criticism from people who consider themselves, that something like this is blocking your toddler from accessing other children and preventing him from developing normally. But is it really so?? You only need to think about it a bit to realize it quickly, that peers can also have a bad influence on our child. In the vast majority of cases, peer groups are formed primarily at school, and this is where you spend the most time with other children. However, it is quite obvious, because the standard class is usually approx 25 children with a similar level of development or interests. Most specialists keep telling us, that frequent contact with peers has only a positive effect on our child. Unfortunately, many parents take these opinions for granted without any careful consideration of the whole issue; then we take it in advance, that forcing a child to spend time with peers is the only correct solution. Perhaps this opinion is not very popular, but in fact, a group of peers is not always conducive to the proper development of a child. If a given toddler shows special abilities in any field, sometimes it does, that other kids are simply holding him back; after all, most groups force us to conform to their norms and block all attempts to lean out. The statement is also not entirely true, that other children influence the toddler's emotional development. To be exact: have, but not always like this, as we wish it to be. In some cases it comes to this, that our child imitates the unjust behaviors of some of his peers by force. This is not, of course, the point, in order to completely cut off the child from the world around him - it is worth taking a closer look at this, in what company he spends his time.
