Are home schooled kids less socially developed than normal schooled ones?

I am seriously thinking of home schooling my babe? I am off course thinking of engaging her into ballet classes, swimming classes, and music. At least this will give her some space to share with other kids her age.

Please support your answer with any websites or articles reliables. Thank you for your help.

Home-schooling is not a bad thing. I was home schooled (I am now graduated) and I am in the national honor club at the community college. I was able to start college 2 years early with one of the highest test scores of all the students.

True Home schooling is not being locked away in your home and never being out in public. though many ignorant people think that way, it is not.

I spent over 1/2 my time as a student out in the real world learning things first hand. I learned about banking by going to work with my grandmother (before she retired) who approved loans, she taught me how to see if people would “qualify” or not for different loans.

I learned marine biology by going to the beach and spending days with marine biologists doing research projects, I got a unique education that I could never have gotten at a public school.

Socialization? You call being in a room full of kids all the same age as you and told to be quite and listen all day long with the exception of recess good socialization? I got to socialize everyday with people aged from newborns to the elderly. I knows how to talk to people on all different levels and not just people my own age.

tell me, how is being locked in a room with 30-40 other people, that are all your age (or with-in a year of you), reading hypothetical stories about things and finding fake answers to go with those situations, and never really doing anything productive, how is that “real world” experience? I had more “real world experience” when I was ten than most kids have when they graduate.

Socially I have never been hurt, check my face-book page. I don't add anyone I don't know and I have over 290 friends. I did lots of activities with home school groups, 4-H, Church, Camps (The Wilds and Northland. if you want info contact me), and the community college. Home-schooling has so many advantages to public school. I would have shot myself had I gone to one.

so what are we missing… school shootings, drinking, smoking, weed, other forms of drugs, disrespect for teachers and adults (Home-schooled kids KNOW how to respect others), and a world of hurt. I don't think that kids really need that junk. some people do, but I don't.
