The Question of Socialization Have you ever been asked this question? What was your response? Let’s talk about it!!!!
The objective of tonight’s call is to discuss Socialization from the perspective of N.O.I. Homeschoolers. How do we raise Our Muslim Children? What activities do and can we involve our children in? The many advantages of Homeschooling in this time.
The Definition of So – cial – ize (the root word)is: To make social or to fit or to train for a social environment. DO WE WANT OUR CHILDREN TO FIT INTO THIS WORLD?….. OF COURSE NOT!
To be respectful and kind to others, to act appropriately in any given situation, And to be successful in life. ******** Most people would say that they want their children to learn to function in a group setting, to learn to respect others, and to have the ability to get along with people of all ages…all races, and every socioeconomic group.” www.homeschoolmom.com
Why do people choose to homeschool: Well, 31%are concerned with safety, alcohol, tobacco, drugs and bullying. 30% want to introduce morals and values at a higher level. and 16% were dissatisfied with academics in other schools
We are locked in the house all day(LOL:) We are fanatics(LOL:) NOT TRUE in the least!!!!!! We are just trying to provide a quality education for our children
Let’s take a look at a Homeschool Mom who shares tips about Homeschool Socialization. www.youtube.com/watch?v=fbkI4TVeclzm
Don’t they want to go to school? Do they have any friends? Are they isolated? Do they know how to socialize? Are they bored? NOOOOOO!!!!!!
“I’ve seen the village and I don’t want it socializing my children.” “Socialization? That is why I homeschool.” “The last thing I need is what you call socialization.” “We want our kids civilized, not socialized.” “I’m not relying on the state to socialize my kids.” “What swear word do you think my children don’t already know.” www.guiltfreehomeschooling.org

Call on Allah Daily through Prayer for Guidance, he will always inspire us with innovative ideas for Our Schooling and Our Families!
Because he does not want us to know how filthy he is and all his affairs. He is afraid because when we learn about him, we will run him from among us. Socialist means to advocate a society of men or groups of men for one common cause. Equality means to be equal in everything.
