Homeschool and Socialization: How to Keep Your Child Connected
Whether you are just starting your journey of homeschooling, or you have been at it for some time, probably the number one question you get asked (or you ask yourself) is about socialization: How will your kids be properly socialized if they are learning at home rather than in a school environment?
While socialization certainly looks different for homeschooled kids (or kids who learn at home through a distance learning modality), most parents will tell you that their kids who learn at home are doing just fine in the socialization department.
Why? Well, it’s partly because homeschooling usually doesn’t take place exclusively at home, and homeschoolers actually interact frequently with others. But it’s also because homeschool parents usually make an effort to bring socializing into the mix, with positive results.
Here's how families of kids who are homeschooled, or otherwise educated at home, ensure that socialization happens so that kids form meaningful relationships with their peers, are well-rounded—and most of all, are happy.
