Kids in school learn how to act like kids because they're surrounded by them all day. Being home schooled they act more mature because they're parents(adults) are with them all day. The peer pressure to act a certain way in order to get along with whatever group they're hanging around with is gone.
Agreed. With homeschooling, gone are the popularity contests, the worry about gangs/drugs in the school. You can concentrate solely on what's important...the knowledge. Take away the pc bias, teach them truth and facts rather than "can't offend anyone" opinions.

Does anyone know of a site that lists homeschooling requirements by state? I know some states require you keep a lesson plan and turn it in. Others leave you entirely to your own devices.
