Home is the primary institution for children, home as perceived by Abdul -ganiyu (1997), Christie (2009), defined home as a place in which an individual or a family can rest and store personal property.
Haven’t define the concept of home it is therefore important to define family. The family can therefore, be looked at as a social group characterized by common resident, economic, cooperation and production.
When a child is born, the family is the first primary group with which they come into contact. Transmission of social values of right and wrong, what is morally and religiously accepted or condemned in the society, it follows therefore that by the time a child attained five to seven years of age he/she must have learnt what are his/her rights, obligations and roles within the society.
However, the background of a student goes a long way to determine his/her individuality. As the child enters school, he/she will start manifesting different attitudes and expectations. In addition children may be of the same age group, developed at different rates and so may be able to cope with the intellectual and social task of the school in varying extent.
However, a home can either be stable or broken. A stable home is one in which both parents (mother and father) lives together with their children, while a broken
is the one in which one or both of the parents are not living together with the
children. It is the level at which the home operates that determine the
academic achievement of the children in school. Broken homes been it unstable
can influence the achievement of a science students academically.
Also, children that have suffered from neglect or lack of love (in broken homes) are known to be psychologically imbalanced to face the realities of life. When there is disunity in the family, or a difference between a mother or a father, the child is caught in the middle and will be at disadvantage. According to Blackby (1999), adequate research needs to be conducted in this direction to ensure smooth transition of children from early stages to adulthood.
