This was on one of my homeschool lists
You know since the word "socialization" seems to come up a lot in conversations
with non-homeschoolers, I thought I'd share this quote from "The meaning of
Sociology" by Joel M. Charon:
A socialized person is one who has been successfully made a member of his or
her group, formal organization, community, and/or society. A socialized person
controls himself or herself.
Lack of socialization is someone who: exhibits a lack of self-control, an
inability to cooperate, a tendency toward impulsive behavior.
So to sum it all up:
Socialized = The ability to control yourself in social situations.
Unsocialized = The inability to control yourself in social situations.
