Are there any internet links to essays or articles about the dangers or downsides to homeschooling?

I'm not sure if I've ever seen an article on the downsides to homeschooling - there are just too many advantages!

A study was completed last year which you may be interested in reading:

Perhaps a downside could be burnout by parents, partcularly if they've been homeschooling several children for several years. Good luck!

Since you asked, NBC did a "Law and Order - Special Victims Unit" on homeschooling being a cover for child abuse. (Go to and search for articles on homeschooling.) However, I think that is a grossly inaccurate portrayal of most homeschooling families. Like the last person said, there are only too many advantages to homeschooling that outweigh any "dangers or disadvantages."

The dangers of the Internet in school mainly centers around bullying and abuse. Children can access the Internet while on their phone so they don't even have to be near a computer.
