Is homeschooling better for Social Skills development?

Yes.

For us at least, I think it is so much better. At first, the decision to homeschool was hard for us. I mostly worried about whether my son would get enough practice with his social skills. That was his biggest problem, so I didn’t make any sense to me to keep him home. When my son started taking a turn for the worse in public school, it really became the only option for us. I was terrified of him blaming me someday for making him a “weird unsocialized homeschooler”.
