The Home Schooling parents comments to me are interesting because I agree with their socialization comments and think between AYSO, Boy Scouts Explorers, youth groups and other activities that the socialization issues can be solved.
Once, I met a gentleman while traveling in Boise, from a Scottsdale Corp, who builds indoor soccer buildings and he said that during the day they are empty and we discussed home schooler networks in the region getting together for socialization purposes. They now offer this with coaches, games and high tech machines to score, pass and help kids learn.
It seems that given the right push these things can be very affective and a good use of facilities. The socialization is an issue, but it is solvable and must be a part of growing up of course. Probably the biggest reason that this myth of socialization persists is because at one time it was true. But not anymore with large networks of home schooling parents getting together and sharing information.
Home schooling has come a long way in the past couple of decades and the Internet is propelling it even faster than ever before. I certainly hope this article is of interest and that is has propelled thought. The goal is simple; to help you in your quest to be the best in 2007. I thank you for reading my many articles on diverse subjects, which interest you.
