This is usually the name given to children who do not attend kindergarten due to certain reasons, for reasons of health or the wishes of their parents. I have three illustrative examples of such children.
My friend hairdresser Anya, the mother of an adult teenage girl, sincerely congratulated me on getting pregnant, even suspecting that she herself was in a similar interesting position. We gave birth with a difference of a week.
Anya is a follower of the anti-vaccination movement, although she cannot really explain the reason for her choice. Something mean between godfather said and showed in the news.
Naturally, they do not take a child into the kindergarten without vaccinations, which in no way upsets the mother, rather the opposite. Her day starts around noon and consists of a mix of social networks, watching TV shows and cooking (and absorbing) food. As you can see, there are no classes and walks in this list.
According to Anya, this is something like a second youth and unity with the child. She enjoyed breastfeeding up to three years, forgetting even to teach her daughter flowers and letters. They rarely walk, and contact with other children occurs even less frequently.
She is satisfied with this state of affairs, of these advantages – the constant presence of a five-course dinner for the husband (as a result, 20 pounds of extra weight from the mother), sterile cleanliness in the apartment, close contact with the child and convenient for her daily routine (or rather, his absence ).
My friend Dasha divorced her husband when she was not even a year old. Due to the state of health of the child from vaccinations, the kindergarten, so the kindergarten did not include in their plans for at least 4 years. By the way, I want to note that my mother was even ready to buy a certificate of vaccination, but they did not agree to such a step in our clinic.
Dasha works at home and earns quite well. She transferred her daughter to a convenient mode – in the absence of daytime sleep, she goes to bed at 20-21 and gets up at 9. While her mother sleeps 5-6 hours a day because of work.
The child is provided with a large number of educational toys, is engaged in the study of a foreign language, rests on the sea in the company of the mother 4-6 times a year. There are few conversations with peers, but enough – the doors of their homes are always open for guests, especially children.
The baby is no different from her peers – a sociable and active girl. Currently, Dasha is planning to start vaccination and is preparing to attend kindergarten.
I have one more friend Galina, my age mate, who does not drive a daughter (she is now 4.5 years old) to the garden simply because she does not want. They live in a private house in the country and almost 24 hours a day enjoy the company of each other.
The spectrum of their occupations is more than extensive – from collecting and coloring cones to making ikeban from improvised means. Their joint hobby is cooking. Especially both mother and daughter love sweets, so they constantly try to give me another cake with a new recipe !.
Galya also found herself in weaving braids, and I constantly admire her daughter’s regular haircut. It seems that they begin to stumble in the morning to be ready to meet me in the evening;)
I think the option of a home child is not very acceptable. After all, if you can still get away from the kindergarten, then you can’t hide from the school. And the later the child begins to learn to contact peers in a team, the more difficult it will be for him.
And the formation of the immune system is impossible without constant contact with other children, even if they are ill. And if a child pampered with home stays abruptly begins to attend classes at school, then this may well be fraught with frequent diseases that it is better to suffer at a younger age.
And how do you feel about homemade children?
