Well, this is from two years ago so he probably doesn't have homework any longer! 

With that said, the disadvantage that come to my mind are:

*  They dissolve more quickly.  You need to create and maintain a coalition government if there isn't a strong presence of one party in parliament.  This means that the government is much more fragile that the American, two party, first past the post system. 

*  Parliamentary governments also tend to be more ideological than our two party system.  Sometimes this works out fine but it can also cause some serious problems when political theory and practicality clash.

The parliamentary government disadvantage is that it has less restrictions,so possibility of corruption is more.

In parliamentary system, government is derived from parliament. As long as the government maintains parliament's confidence and major support from assembly (or parliament), the government continues to exist. If not, it will be dissolved. This is especially serious in countries where there are many opposite parties, like Italy, between 1945 and 2001, there are no fewer than 59 government. This is really inefficient!!!

Generally a parliamentary form of Government is a democratically elected form of Government (although there are exceptions to this, for example, once Hitler had been elected to power in Germany he retained the Reichstag, but effectively barred free elections).
Democratically elected Governments can be viewed as being representative of the people and therefore less likely to be extreme in nature or to exact cruelty on their electorate. In short they will protect and attempt to enhance the quality of life for those who voted them in.
However, there can be disadvantages as well. Democratically elected Governments may be unwilling to address some of the trickier questions or harder issues, for fear that if they raise taxes too high or cause major inconvenience to some of the electorate, they will not be voted in again.
Thus parliamentary forms of Government may be viewed as flawed, but perhaps they are a safer option than a dictator or supreme ruler.

Parlimentary form of government is the best form. I don't see any disadvantage other than, that democratically elected Governments may be reluctant to address some of the harder issues because of fear that if they raise taxes too high , they will not be voted in again in the future.
