Now that I have kids I would never put my life and interests in front of their education. I would NEVER home school my kids and subject them to the struggles I went through trying to adjust to life as a member of society after leading a pretty sheltered and isolated life due to Homeschooling.
I am aware of a very similar issue that I have witnessed first hand. I am also aware of many more that are not. Sounds like it wasn't the right thing for you. I think the key is getting them with other kids and getting outside exposure. Just my opinion though.
