Don't listen to the nay sayers! Your kids social skills will improve, they will not be so easily lead down any and every immoral path that today's
schools seem to push, if that's how you guide them. They are your kids; you guide them, not government schools incorporated. If you are worried
about the social skills argument, there are almost always other local homeschoolers in your area who are willing to meet up for socializing.
Also, the best way to keep your children out of something you do not want them to be a part of is to NOT ENROLL them to begin with, so if they were
already in school you will have a harder time. Do not let anybody scare you into to do anything, the best thing you can do is be educated on the
coming opposition before faced with it, make a decision before it comes and have a decision made.
I will say that many homeschooling families do fall into the trap of totally cutting the kids off from all the negatives of the world, which can lead
the kids to not being ready for the real world. My belief is to be honest with them and show them the real world, that way when it comes at them they
have what you taught them and are ready to deal with anything.
Good for you.
