== == I'm a homeschooled kid and many people I know have talked to me about this. From what I have been told people say that homeschooling usually does affect their people skills. My advice to you is to get your homeschoolers involved in sports and other kinds of activities like church projects, dramas, plays, musicals and other types of things. _________________________________________________________________ It really depends on the home. If a parent has bad people skills, then it is likely the child may as well. Of course, a parent having bad people skills can affect the child even if they are enrolled in school. As far as poor people skills due to not being in a classroom setting, that in itself does not cause negative issues. As long as the homeschooling parent makes sure that the child is exposed to other children and involved in group activities, then there should be no problems. My daughters have homeschooled for 4 years and are perfectly capable of conversing with an adult or another child. They play well with others, can deal with a bully, know how to joke around, and know when to be serious. They are quite outgoing and confident without being obnoxious or thinking they are better than someone else. They are also very much individuals.

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 nbc.com 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."

I am a Republican and I fully support homeschooling. I know hundreds of other people like me. Is there any other question behind that question? -- Well, no.. Not really.. I just wanted to know cause I live in Sweden and homescooling is unlegally here. So I wonder how it is in the US. If there's any party (among the republicans or the democrats that is against homeschooling. I have write a question like this, but instead of repulicans I ask if democrats is against it.) - I was just interested. + I love the US and I know homeschooling is legally there.. Yeah. :) Thanks for answering my question! I see. No, I don't think Republicans or democrats are against homeschooling, but from personal experience I think that more republicans are homeschoolers than democrats. I hope homeschooling will be legal in Sweden someday!

What are some reasons against homeschooling your kids?

I can't think of any relevant reason, except for they are more limited in their social activity. They may become shy as a result. That's all there really is, but if you do team Homeschooling, or have a Homeschool get-together once a week or so, you shouldn't have any problem.

Does homeschooling affect a childs growing?

I'm home schooled, and when my parents decided to home school me, I wasn't very happy with their decision. However, as I've grown and witnessed/heard some of the terrible things in public school, I'm so very grateful to my parents for homeschooling me. Homeschooling doesn't take away any benefits from your child. If you're wondering if home schoolers have friends, yes, we do. Actually - we have plenty of friends, home schooled and public schooled. Home schooling allows you to teach what you think your child should be taught, to monitor who your child hangs out with what your child watches etc., and to have a closer bond with your child. I could go on for days, but let me know if you'd like to discuss this anymore.

Why should homeschool not be allowed?

There is no reason that homeschooling as a whole should not be allowed. There are always individual cases of homeschooling that should be discontinued, such as the parent not actually educating or socializing the child, or if the child is being abused or neglected. Although, abuse and neglect can occur in any home rather a child attends public, private, or homeschool. In any case, the abuse should be investigated. Homeschooling done correctly in a healthy environment can be quite beneficial to the child.

Are there any Christian home schooling programs?

Sure. If your interested in Christian homeschooling try the Sonlight Curriculum. They have curricula for all age groups and offer resources, as well as tips for homeschooling parents. You can find a directory of Christian homeschooling resources and links to top Christian homeschooling sites at Homeschoolers for Christ. Alpha Omega offers one of the least expensive, and in my opinion, the best Christian home school curricula available. You can view some options at http://www.homeschoolingcentral.net

Alternatively teaching them to read or word games that lead to that will boost their learning potential.

How does homeschooling affect the kids life?

I am a sophomore in high school that has been homeschooled my whole life. So far, I can tell you that it has affected me most in my time managment skills. Being homeschooled, your schedule is not rigid like most public/private schools. This can make it very difficult to adjust to learn how to manage your time later (like, in high school) when it has a BIG impact on your grades and your life. Also, homeschooling can sometimes, in my case, keep a kid REALLY sheltered depending on your homeschooling style. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, but it can be a big culture shock when "homeschooler meets world," so to speak. Lastly, homeschooling often secludes a child. Imagine, during the day, they child is at home. If you're not involved in any homeschool groups, this can be lonely for a child. There are positive things about homeschooling too! Homeschooling is a great prepeeration for college (so I've been told by friends now in college) because your child will learn how to be independent with his/her schoolwork. Also, flexibility is another favored perk of homeschooling for a lot of families. I hope this helps! Please keep in mind that this is just my personal experience, so these opinions may not be shared by anyone else.

Is homeschooling a bad thing?

Depends what you mean on bad. No all and all it is NOT a bad thing it is a good thing. I think it depends on the child you are working with and how they like homeschooling. Yes you do socialize and meet new people all the time. And it depends on what books you use to determin if homeschooling is hard or not. I am homeschooled and it is VERY frustrating and it is a challenge. And yes I know as much as any other school kid out there. I hope I helped. =)
