A. Home-educated children, because they spend so much of their time out in the real world, generally learn to get along well with both adults and children, and to have friends of all ages. They choose to spend time with others because they enjoy their company or have a similar interest, just as adults do. In many areas, there are formal and informal support groups that offer opportunities to meet other children and provide time for socialization. Many homeschoolers find they have to cut back on their social schedule to have time at home alone! More about socialization.
