I have a daughter that just turned 1. Most likely she will go to public school simply because of my need to work. I applaud the parents that are able to make home schooling work. I do believe that outside of the home school there should be activities and socializing with other kids, but as long as that is accomplished then I think the education the children receive is most likely top-knotch.
There is all sorts of "OUTSIDE" things a home schooled child can participate in. The list is endless depending on which school you use to get materials for homeschooling, and believe it or not, it don't take that much of "YOUR" time.
And as far as Dances, Proms, Ballgames, Parties, they are available to home-schooled kids, no social skills should be lacking
In fact, it is even BETTER because a home-schooled child attending a function in another school (by invitation) is treated like a New Kid that EVERYONE wants to get to know
