In this episode of At Home, Kristin Rogers leads the discussion on socialization.
Wow! It turns out this is a big topic and we all have so much to say.
Kristin does a great job helping us get to an understanding of what socialization really means. We determine that it’s much more than kids being cool, and dressing in the latest fashion. But we also recognize that it is easy to become distracted by those things.
We decide that we want to look at socialization from a broader scope, to approach it with a view of the kind of adults we want our kids to become, rather than focus solely on how well they are fitting in with their peers right now.
We hash out ideas for how to get through some of the socialization challenges homeschoolers can face, such as home schooling an only child, being an introverted parent with an extroverted child, home schooling in a rural area, getting out in winter (something us California girls really know nothing about) and more.
We hope this episode will give you lots to think about, and will be an encouragement to you as well.
Don’t forget to listen to the Quick Question Round at the end of the episode It’s sure to leave you with a good laugh. We love sharing the heavy and the fun with you all!
Quote by Simon Peg:
“Being a geek is all about being honest about what you enjoy and not being afraid to demonstrate that affection. It means never having to play it cool about how much you like something. It’s basically a license to proudly emote on a somewhat childish level rather than behave like a supposed adult. Being a geek is extremely liberating.”
