Socialization & Community
Many families are concerned that homeschooled children may be at a disadvantage when it comes to socialization and opportunities to socialize. Homeschoolers do not have to be isolated, nor are homeschooled children at a disadvantage when it comes to interacting with others. Your community offers many opportunities for people of all ages to learn from one another, to share talents, and to work together on shared goals. Depending on where you live, you can find a wealth of opportunities for field trips, special museum days, and even homeschool programs at amusement parks. In urban and suburban areas, there are frequently more opportunities for homeschoolers to socialize than they can take advantage of!
