Quoting Rette Mich:" IMO? Dont do it. I'd say over 75% of people I know that were homeschooled either have horrible social ... [snip!] ... skills or hated it so much they ended up blaming their parents for not putting them in a real school. But thats just IMO."
That's the parents fault that they didn't get them involved with social groups. There are a ton of social groups out there for homeschooled children. On the other hand, I don't think anyone should be homeschooling their children if they don't have an education themselves and if the children are very adamant about NOT doing homeschooling.
