How to Homeschool without Making Your Child An OutcastWritten by Michael Nelson

Sports are important: Next to school, sports teams provide best environment for your child to form deep bonds with other kids. They spend a lot of time at practice and root for each other in games. Also, you’ll be meeting other parents while watching all games. If your child has physical problems or would embarrass himself on a playing field, get them involved in activities like Boy/Girl Scouts or any other local organization for children.
Let Pop Culture into Home: Some homeschooling parents maintain strict control over what their child is allowed to listen to on radio, watch on television, and what they do on internet. While it is important to keep them away from dangerous situations, it is also important to let them be exposed to same influences as other children. Remember that your child is already facing an uphill battle to not be considered “weird.” Imagine how much worse it would be for them if they didn’t know any of hot bands, cool TV shows, or what clothes other kids wear? Without being exposed to mainstream culture, they will have little to talk about with other children and will have a hard time relating to others.
