Go to a regular school is more than just education. School children can get along with their friends and their teachers and in the process acquire important social skills as they go forward into adult life.
Some critics have criticized that homeschooling does not meet the educational aspect. Because the child is learning at home, it does not give him the chance to pick up social skills. Some critics even show homeschooling children are less able to express themselves in comparison with regular school goers.
However, research has shown just the opposite. Public school children put under a very competitive school environment. The end result is that they do not have the confidence to start or hold a conversation. They do not know how to interact with people of other age groups. Some seem to have no social skills at all! It is indeed worrying.
On the other hand, homeschooling children are more aware of the implications and their learning objectives. They also can make intelligent comments and more attentive when learning.
The study concluded that the public school audience pick the bad influence of their peers while the homeschool children are protected from negative influences such.
In my own opinion, homeschooling children are more ready with the necessary tools to face the world. Sheltered from the negative influence of their peers plus the positive influence of parents will help them to be more flexible and better individual-round.
