If there is one thing that annoys me the most it’s when people still believe there’s no socialization to homeschooling. Ok, so I realize there may be a few recluse homeschoolers but I’m sure they are few. I’ve never met them. 😉 Ok so here it is Socialization is : to talk to and do things with other people in a friendly way or : to teach (someone) to behave in a way that is acceptable in society at least that’s what http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/socialization says. So according to Merriam-Webster I socialize my kids almost every time we leave the house. Examples: going to Mass and attending Religious Education, trip to the library, playground,BX, or Commissary, field trips, and attending our Catholic Homeschool Group meetings. Just to name a few. I guess it makes me laugh a little when I meet someone at a playground, museum, or event and they mention socialization. So what are my children doing right now? Oh those kids, are playing with other kids, talking to adults, and getting along with each other. If that’s not socialization I should just quit now. I have been homeschooling for 5 yrs now and trust me there are bigger concerns for me than if my kids are being socialized enough. What do you think about socialization? Did you ever believe that homeschoolers didn’t get socialization ? Have I changed your mind about homeschoolers and socialization?
