When is the last time you saw a television show offering a look into the lives of homeschoolers? While it's possible to catch a glimpse of what a homeschooling day might resemble, there's not much on television that offers a true look into the lives of homeschoolers. And let's face it, not many people that are not interested in homeschooling will go out and purchase a magazine or book to learn more. To curious onlookers, the mystery remains and thus, concerns and fears are born in relation to the socialization issue. Or, maybe it's just a curiosity! Whatever the case, the "socialization question" can prove to be either irritating or comical to the homeschooler, or sometimes a little of both! Use those "keyhole" opportunities to teach others about the homeschooling world.

How do you handle the socialization issue? Take a look at what others are saying in a FB poll, and voice your opinion.
