Which is better for children, the boarding school or the day school?

 

In general, sending children to the day school is most of parents' choice , however, in recent years, the boarding schools have become more popular than before .Some parents bewildered which one is better for children ,should I send my child to a boarding school instead of traditional school ? In my opinion, there is no definitely better one , but have a fitting one for each different family.

The boarding school's feature is to strictly manage the calendar of student's study and living with professinal methods and advanced facilities. In addition, children have more time to play ,study ,conmunicate with classmates ,and parents don't worry about they are alone when they are focus on work ,and have no time to accompany with them. Away from families' care, children have to learn to be independent on living and thinking ,after all, teachers in school are not able to attend each student carefully enough.

Theoretically speaking, boarding school's advantage is more than day school .

But, the costs of boarding school is too hight to afford for normal families and it will take less time to stay at home with parents that cannot be accepted by a lot of children and parents. The two reasons significantly lead people to choose the day school except that some parents are too busy for work to take care of their children.

On the other hand, the day schools' cost is more appropriate and parents could have more time with their children.Moreover,the same with the boarding school or ever better than(some day school were supported by government),most of the day school still have the capability of using profession way to educate children with good facilities.

All in all, which type of school should be chosen according to the different families' real situations. We cannot assure the better one but the fitter one.In fact, brilliant person are not from the same type of school or education form , success are attribute to individual hard work.

I went to a boarding school when i was a child and at that time, i didn't like it at all. Rules were very strict and to be far from my family (thought they were only 10 km away from my shcool) was pretty hard on me. Now,when i look back, i am glad my parents decided to "offer" me that kind of education. I learned a lot there, not only about the education, but also how to behave.

thanks Idealist for this clarrification, and as you said the choice be singled out according to parent's situation, beside the only balance we weight the success is the individual efforts.
