What to say when asked about “socialization”

Homeschooling and Socialization

Ways you might respond to questions about homeschooling and socialization:

Homeschooling really is different than traditional school. I totally get why you have those questions. I had to do a lot of research before I felt comfortable with it myself. And I’m still learning.


Yeah, that’s a great question. I get it a lot. I’m still figuring it out. But I take heart that homeschooling has been around now for 50 years and lots of those kids are grown. Seems like they’re doing all right as adults.


You can share what you do too. I used to give a day in the life to questions like “What do you use for…?” I had a bunch of public school moms as running partners and they asked lots of questions. So one run I just told them a typical day in our lives. By the end, they were all saying, “That’s so cool. I don’t know if I could ever do that. Sounds really fun.”

Like that.
