Homeschooling Can Encourage Socialization

Yesterday I wrote about how some non-homeschooling individuals are still worried about homeschooling and socialization. Serendipitously, I just read an article by a Marisa Chow, a Contra Costa Times Teen Correspondent and a homeschooled teen in the Bay Area of California. In Teens: Home schooling aids, rather than inhibits, socialization, Marisa states:

Not only does home schooling include activities outside of the home, it also allows — and even encourages — students to socialize with people of different ages, backgrounds and perspectives.

She then gives many examples of how homeschooling has facilitated socialization in her life.

It is encouraging to read articles written by homeschooled teens, seeing homeschooling from their eyes and experiences.

Do you worry about socialization for your homeschoolers? Do you worry about homeschooling through the teen years? High school can be as fun and interesting to homeschool as were the elementary years. Check out my articles on homeschooling through high school. And if you have a worry, please leave a comment here and let us see if we can alleviate your concern.
