Hey, I stumbled onto your blog and I read the description at the side. I was impressed that you're homeschooling all your kids! I have one question. Aren't you afraid that they won't have the same social interactions like other kids get?

Fishmeatball, have you ever even read my blog? My kids have been part of dance and sports and theater and martial arts and homeschool group classes most days of the week. Homeschooled kids are usually MORE socially adept, have a better sense of self (they know who they are without succumbing to negative peer influence), and are more independent than schooled kids. Think about how YOU, as an adult, make friends - that's how homeschoolers make friends. It's not hard, lol. The social interaction argument is so played out and probably based on the idea of 1970s homeschoolers from strict, sheltering religious families. It's the only thing naysayers have to "be concerned" about. Homeschoolers have not only proven their test scores are better, but college entry and college life are absolutely no problem, and adult life is happier and more productive. Having a concern about homeschoolers' social interactions is pretty ignorant nowadays. Maybe you need to start reading some more blogs and articles.
