Standardized Socialization

Today’s poem is inspired by my “favorite” home educating question: What about socialization? After nearly 10 years of home educating, this question never gets old. šŸ˜‰

This one’s dedicated my home educating homies who’ve found yourself at the post office, grocery store check-out line, or any other place just trying to mind your own gol dang business with your kids when you get asked, “What about socialization?”


Standardized Socialization


class room


raise your hand to speak


face down

don’t talkĀ 

listen, test, repeat



lunch time

can’t talkĀ 

hurry up and eat


keep them


same thing every week
