Help create our Socialization page!
Is Socialization a Personal Thing? What does it mean to be social? What does it mean to be "socialized?" Where does learning how to interact with others come from? What are the goals of teaching children how to interact in the world and to get along with others? Is there a sure-fire way to achieve happily social kids? Do different people have different social needs? In what ways can children become isolated? How do children learn to handle adversity and how to cooperate with others? What kind of socialization do children need? What does it mean to shelter a child, and when might that be a good idea?
We would love to hear your stories about how and why you homeschool your child and your take on socialization. How does homeschooling benefit your child, your family, you as a parent? What works for you? What are the social needs of your child and your family?
We are interested in all stories that celebrate finding your own way with your child that are personally real and as non-judgmental in nature as possible. Thoughtful, respectful personal commentary is welcomed, as well.
Vignettes are also welcomed and do not need to be of length; in fact, a paragraph will work best.
A collection of personal stories, commentary and vignettes will be used to create this page called Socialization: A Personal Thing.
You can submit your writing (story, personal commentary, vignette) to the editor at firstname.lastname@example.org. Specify "Socialization" and give your name as you would like it published.
If you find that you have a story of length to share, follow the instructions for Guest Author in the Writer Guidelines.
We look forward to hearing from you!
