You will find that most of the socialization offered at school was not high quality time. Instead, there were too many children and not enough adults, which tends to create a peer-based culture. As a parent, you are the best socializer of your child, because you can teach the qualities, one-on-one, that make for healthy relationships. Many families with two or more children have found that participation in a church, 4-H club, music or dance lessons, or scouts offers plenty of social opportunities for a child. You will also find, over time, several homeschooling families to share experiences with, or go on field trips together.
