Socialization

I get a kick out of the inevitable question asked of anyone who finds out that we home school: "What about socialization?"


It's sort of hard to not be around other kids. Between scouts, church, sports, and friends - we get a little too much socialization some days.

But today's activity was what I think of as a great benefit of home schooling. The kids have been working with some friends on staging a play and today was a day to gather, play, and practice. This has all been self-directed and has transpired between kids who are 11, 10, 9, 8, and 7. different ages, different genders, different families. All "socializing".



Can you imagine a better day for rehearsals?

Hi Anne Margaret!
This is Robin from the park today. I had to comment on THIS post because it hit so close to home. I think it's so funny that some people have the perception that our kids sit at home all day with nobody but us to talk to. And that is about as far from the truth as you can get.
In fact, these days, it feels like TOO much socialization....LOL!

Here is my blog:
