Homeschool students do not sit in their house all day disconnected from the outside world. Children who are homeschooled have many opportunities to socialize. ”Like other children, those who are homeschooled interact with other children at dance, sports, music, and language lessons. They get together with friends for playdates. For homeschooled children the world is their classroom, and so in addition to spending time with other children, they have more opportunities for interaction with adults in natural, real world environments. Homeschooled children are often recognized as being more at ease interacting with adults in real-life situations than their peers who have been educated in a traditional school setting where associations are artificially structured by age, and all adults are authority figures.” *
