I do not consider it to be a hot button topic or a debate on home schooling vs. sending a child to school. I think it is up to that parent to decide what is in the best interestof the child. I do not believe home schooling reduces the risk of abuse or use of illegal drugs. Or reduces the risk of sexual activity. And I particularly laugh my butt off about the profane language comment. It doesn't matter what your religion is......all kids and teens have curiousity and hormones. It doesn't stop just because you are at home and not in a public school. I had a good friend in college who was home schooled (I know a lot of home schooled people). But she was also very sexual in college, drank and had a lot of fun, and continues this wild life with her own son. She is not a bad mom. She is married but they are very different in their parenting. Me, I went to public school and never drank. Ever.

Never did any type of drugs. Ever. But in actuality I believe that it just depends on the parents and the child. I have seen very intelligent children not challenged at home and were more challenged in their neighborhood public school. It can always go both ways. Which is why I don't like saying it is this hot debate. Nothing to debate. It is the choice of the parent.
