After homeschooling for almost 10 years I can remember when we first started and people would always talk about socialization and I considered that for about a month. Public school is not the greatest place for kids to socialize to begin with, why do they need to socialize and be involved with drugs, sex, alcohol, secular music, bullying, school shootings etc.. there is plenty of socializing within homeschool groups. You just need to join them. When we first started homeschooling there were what seemed to be too many activities to join. We had to slow down lol.
