“You’re not here to SOCIALIZE!”

One of the biggest arguments against homeschooling is: “But, what about socialization?”

How ironic!  It’s in school where we are the most frequently told to stop socializing…  Who here hasn’t been told, “You’re not here to SOCIALIZE!”

My kids love going out and about.  They both have regular social activities without each other and in groups with each other.  They see people of all ages, from newborn to the elderly, quite frequently.  They are also able to get along with them all equally well – based on the individual personalities of the people involved, not their ages.

Lack of socialization is a complete myth in homeschooling!  In fact, I caught myself saying, “You’re here to socialize, go ahead and talk about whatever you want to talk about,” last week to my Girl Scout troop.

Here are a few of my other articles on this topic:

Make time for your own socialization.  It’s worth it!
