One of the things I really like about homeschooling is the opportunity to teach my children to work together. I believe that the family is the central unit of society and true socialization begins in the family setting. Children are best socialized first within the home before they go out into the world. If my children can learn to disagree appropriately with each other, accept criticism and no answers from each other, and create positive interactions, then they can succeed in life with strangers.
I have two videos for today. The first was taken a few days ago. Strawberry noticed that everyone was doing their family work and she said to me, "Mommy, I am doing my family work too!" I looked over to see her working on folding napkins. She is 2 1/2.
