Do homeschoolers have a social life?
Yes, most homeschoolers do have a social life. Just like in public school, there are going to be those that do not get out, or do not talk with others. However, a large percentage of homeschooled children are involved in dance, cheerleading, football, YMCA, martial arts, church, scouts, and just have friends around the neighborhood in general.
No. More often than not, homeschoolers have better socialization than peers because they are around a variety of ages; young and old, not just peers. Homeschoolers social with kids in soccer practice, youth group, neighbors, etc. School is not meant for socialization, you go to school to learn. It is also noteworthy a 8 year-old will learn better socialization skills from a civil adult than from another 8 year-old.
As far as social scene goes, homeschoolers are not very different. They may get teased about being homeschooled by some but people tend to be more intrigued than hurtful. Some homeschoolers don't have a sense of fashion, or develope one later. Homeschoolers can have difficulty talking to people their own age mainly because they don't have a lot of interaction with their peers but this may be only a stage which they will grow out…
What comparative statistics are out there regarding how home schoolers compare to non-homeschoolers?
I don't know if there are any valid statistics to answer your query. However, I was home schooled as were my brothers and I believe we have done very well. The three of us hold advanced degrees and are very active in our chosen community affairs. I don't believe it is an either/or situation. I believe it is which is of the higher quality. If parents or whomever is supervising the home educating are dedicated…
Well, I'm a teenager who is being homeschooled and loving it! My family and I are all very social, so YES in answer to your question. YES (adding on to ^ that persons answer.) I'm a 14 year old home schooler and I know both home schoolers and public schoolers, in fact I know people in other countries!
It depends. Most homeschoolers score better on their tests (like SAT, etc--search up 'homeschoolers score better on tests' or something like that to see), but does that necessarily mean they are smarter? Maybe it's just that they have more time to study for them because they can study at their own pace. How do you define smart, anyway? By IQ? That has nothing to do with whether or not you're homeschooled!
Absolutely. More and more universities recognize that homeschoolers are a great asset to their institution. Many universities have specific procedures for handling homeschool applications. Some homeschoolers attend community college in high school and can use those transcripts as proof of ability or even to receive college credit. Homeschoolers have been accepted into every prestigious university in the US.
I have a debate on Monday and I am speaking on how do social networking websites benefit out social life. Please give me some good points on how do they benefit us. Make sure that it's only about social life. Also, since it's a debate, my *opponent will speak* on how do social networks spoil our social life. So what are some good points which my *opponent* will tell? How can I oppose his points.

It is perhaps so that people do indeed apply social psychology to everyday life. We are not even aware of it. Though however that social psychology may be a subject of everyday life, everyday life is not a subject of social psychology. You must put it in its place for many aspects of human behavior and nature may be within the study of social psychology. Thoughts emotions spirituality feelings behavior are human measures or variables…
