Socialization Keynote

Socialization – the Big “S” Word! - 
In this presentation, we address the one concern that trumps people. It’s that one word that can take an otherwise pleasant conversation about home education completely sideways. This one word can move a parent who is sitting on the fence about homeschooling to choose against it, a word that for someone who is new and frustrated with loneliness or taken back by the groups they have met, to send their child back to public school, and it can invoke fear and uncertainty in people. But in others it is the blessing they have been waiting for their entire lives, it can be refreshing and liberating. And unfortunately most homeschool leaders won’t even talk about it. It’s the big S word, SOCIALIZATION. And in this presentation, we are going to stop discrediting the feelings people are having about this – whether they are already homeschoolers, or just peering in from the outside. We will cover practical tips and ideas for parents as well as group leaders.  We will talk about that S word, once and for all!

Here is the replay of the September 8th KEYNOTE session with Dianne McLean.
