One thing I was worried about when I first began homeschooling, was how my kids would make friends. I wasn’t worried about socialization, just what activities would be available to them since they were homeschooled. Within our first year of homeschooling, I realized just how little I actually needed to worry ! There are tons of extracurricular activities for homeschoolers, here are just a few.
One of the biggest questions homeschool parents get is “What about socialization?”. We’ve discussed here before about what socialization is, and how homeschoolers can make sure their children are socialized. So, today I am going to share some of the social advantages homeschoolers have, and how the statistics say homeschoolers perform socially.
As a homeschooler, one of the questions I am asked most often is “Aren’t you worried about socialization?” To which I typically respond, “Yes, I am that is why I homeschool.” In all seriousness though, you may be legitimately concerned about the dreaded “S” word. So, I am going to share some of what I have learned with you.
