The 25 Gifts of Homeschooling: The Gift of Co-socialization
11. Homeschooling is the Gift of Co-socialization
Homeschooled siblings have mutual friends and mutual play dates when they are younger. As they get older, and grow into “big kid” schedules they may have mutual lab experiments, or socialize with friends together. Often families will spend more time exploring areas of interest together, rather that separately. Siblings can be a great example for each other. Instead of being in an artificial environment where every child is the same age as themselves, homeschoolers learn to deal with children of different ages at home during the day.
