Worried about homeschool kids

I just had a conversation the other day in the office with two co-workers regarding homeschooling. One mom was lamenting the excessive work her daughter had to do to get around the WASL, Washington's standardized testing.

Of course I got some of the typical questions about socialization and dealing with difficult kids.. I like the answers given over at the Bonny Glen. I usually let them know that with 5 siblings, our kids have plenty of interaction with difficult personalities, and how to interact and share. And if that isn't enough, many of the families we hang out with have lots of kids. So it only takes a few families to equal a small army of kids. (and there are difficult personalities too, occasionally from my kids) But at least when the situation arises, I am there to instruct my child how it should be handled or to discipline if need be.
