Social Psychology: Are home educated children as socialized as publicly educated children and is there any solid research on this topic? - Quora:

"Personally I believe our society is broken in that people mainly associate with people their own age. My relatives in the Philippines, if they threw a party, would include everyone -- babies, kids, teenagers, people in their 20s, 30s, 40s -- and grandmas in their 80s. This was not unusual, and I think, the mark of a healthy society. However I rarely see this kind of intergenerational mixing in the States, except with first generation im-migrants. "

Fake has good thoughts and provides links, even discusses Gatto. And she sounds like she was well socialized.
