...Scouting, Junior Golf and Tennis, Tae Kwan Do, outings with kids from families we like and trust.

Sounds like you guys are the ideal homeschoolers. I didn't have any of that. I did play softball for a few years on the city league, but that was only for a few months out of the year and I didn't really make any long-lasting friends.

I have a lot of friends now, but few close ones. I'm not a hermit, but I'm comfortable - sometimes more comfortable - being alone.

Keep up the good work! Your son sounds really lucky - or blessed. Congrats!

I hope things go well for you. Let's just say however, that being in a public school might not have made any difference in your ability to socialize. Many students go through public education feeling left out and alone. In some cases, it can be justly said that public education is the one with socialization problem.

I have the same feelings but was institutionalized in a government school. When I left school I remember thinking, "Thank God I don't have to hang around with those kids any more." Or, in a more kind way, I'm glad that I'm free to choose my friends.
