This is probably the most-often-asked question of all. However, homeschooled children have plenty of people and activities to help them learn social skills. They have neighbors; extended family members; church leaders, teachers, and peers; community sports teams and coaches; community education classes, 4H, scouting, apprenticeships, gymnastics, hobby clubs; and of course, they have other homeschoolers to play with. Because home-educated children learn their social skills from their own parents and within social groups their parents select, they grow up feeling poised and capable in almost any social setting. They become civilized rather than 'socialized.'
