Honestly, I think homeschooling causes the child to miss out on a lot of things necessary for development. Yes, I understand that the public school system isn't always that great, but there are things that children are exposed to that make them "well-rounded". I'm not saying that every child should try smoking or drinking, I'm just saying there is a stimulation of having other students around that builds a "people person", which is needed to succeed in every career option. If you are worried about your child giving in to "peer pressure", I have one tip, be a friend to your child, talk about things like that as a friend, not an authority, they will be more at ease to talk about it and then they can develop their own ideas and beliefs about these things.

There are very few cons, if any, to putting resources into early childhood education. The earlier a child can develop basic reading and writing skills as well as social skills, the more success they will have in their future endeavors.
