I didnít homeschool. When my girls were in school that was not an option. Would I now, probably not. My cousin did with her daughter and she missed out on a lot of school things, dances, parties, pep rallies, games, proms, and graduation. I know those are not academic things, but they are part of belonging in a school. Socialization is a huge part which you donít get, even if there are groups itís not the same as sitting in a classroom. Just my opinion, sorry if I hurt any feelings of homeschooled moms, I think you do a great job.
