Signs of Great Socialization

posted in: Socialization | 0

One of the claims that public school teachers make against homeschoolers is that our children are not properly socialized or that they don’t have socialization skills.  Lol, that couldn’t be further from the truth.  Homeschooled kids have far superior socialization skills than other students.

Signs of Healthy Social Skills

  • take turns
  • share with others
  • use appropriate language
  • use appropriate voice tone (yelling outside, quiet inside)
  • say please and thank you
  • praise others and avoid insults
  • ask for help when needed
  • stay on task
  • look at others when spoken to
  • communicate clearly
  • wait patiently for lunch
  • take care of belongings
  • listen attentively
  • resolve conflicts appropriately (no hitting, no biting)
  • follow directions
  • work well in teams
  • share ideas coherently
  • understand age-appropriate social concepts
  • help others
