Just for a laugh

While I don't personally have any issues with our local public schools, I do get sick of that infamous, "What about socialization question?"

Here's a unique solution a friend sent me:

"Homeschooling Family Finds Ways to Adapt to a Public School 'Socialization' Program."

"When my wife and I mention we are strongly considering homeschooling our children, we are without fail asked, 'But what about socialization? ' Fortunately, we found a way our kids can receive the same socialization that government schools provide. On Mondays and Wednesdays, I will personally corner my son in the bathroom, give him a wedgie and take his lunch money. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, my wife will make sure to tease our children for not being in the 'in' crowd, taking special care to poke fun at any physical abnormalities. Fridays will be 'Fad and Peer Pressure Day.' We will all compete to see who has the coolest toys, the most expensive clothes, and the loudest, fastest, and most dangerous car. Every day, my wife and I will adhere to a routine of cursing and swearing in the hall and mentioning our weekend exploits with alcohol and immorality.. .. And we have asked them to report us to the authorities in the event we mention faith, religion, or try to bring up morals and values."

An artist friend of ours made a t-shirt with this slogan: "Warning: This child has not been socialized"

So I guess interacting with siblings, neighborhood friends, co-op friends, church friends...doesn't count?? Why does it have to be in a school setting?????

ROFL!It's sad that all of that rings true in many schools.
