Homeschooling and Socializing
Contrary to a myth about homeschooling-that homeschooled kids stay in the house and don't have a life, or friends-there is so much going on. Kids can play community sports, take a class at the local high school, and make friends. As my daughter grew older she went to a swing dance class at the local college, joined the community theater group, worked part time, and had friends who went to regular school as well as her homeschool friends. She did all the things most teenagers do, including going to two proms. Also, there were field trips to museums, skating rinks, places of interest here in our area, bowling, also family Christmas parties, and other activities. She also loved to swim, and even took golf lessons.
