A common first question from new home schoolers is always, “But how do they make friends?” At DHE, we have no such worries.
Our network recently hosted a learning cooperative for a hundred children. That’s larger than some schools in Qatar. A recent swim day brought dozens of children to the pool together, and dozens more will be attending museum and Aquapark trips together this month.
Being involved with a network can give many opportunities for social time. But it’s not the only way our children are “socialized.” Strong families, sports, religious organizations, and other clubs in the community also allow home schooled children to flourish in social settings.
If there is one aspect of considering home schooling that should NOT worry you, it’s the ability for your child to make friends.
