Would you want your child to sit at home all day, lonely, staring at a screen? With online schooling students do not create the social skills they need to grow. Students who take online schooling are often lonely and do not get the opportunity to socialize with kids their own age. Also, it is not healthy for students to sit and stare at a screen all day long. Think about it, would you want to put your child through this? This could cause then to suffer from obesity, seizures, eye problems, and social issues. So the next time you consider online schooling, consider the future of your children.
In online schools students do not get the chance to get up and move around or play at recess. They just sit at the computer all day without activity. This causes the students to possibly become obese or unhealthy.
Eye and seizure issues
Staring at a computer screen all day is also very unhealthy for your eyes. Would you want to ruin your child's eyesight just for online schooling? Now really think, would you want your child to have seizures? Nobody does. If they are on the computer for long periods of time it could lead to seizures. Nobody wants this for their child.
Online schooled students are alone and do not interact with others like they would in a normal school. If they are not socializing normally these students will grow up without learning many social skills that are needed as adults.
