That is why my kids will be going to a public school (when I have them, maybe, someday), because I think it would be easier (for me, itleast. maybe not for all) to teach them to stay away from things in public school, then to try to balance the line.

Indeed, but there is a fine line between keeping them safe from a sinful society, and sheltering them from real life. I'm homeschooled, and I feel my parents have done a very good job of keeping me away from certain things without sheltering me -- they realize there are some things I'm going to run into eventually, so they tell me what I need to know.
I am sad to report that, from my experiences, not all homeschoolers are taught enough about the outside world. The kids are all too often homeschooled to protect them from a poor school system as well as dangers outside of the home.
