Teaching Life Skills in Homeschool
Teaching life skills in homeschool requires paying special attention to social interaction. Allow homeschooled children to play and learn with other kids their own age. Encourage life skills in homeschool through demonstration and fun activities with help from a university campus president in this free video on life skills.

Hi, this is Dr. Darren Adamson from Argosy University. Today I want to talk with you about teaching life skills in a home school setting. Learning the life skill of social interaction is an entirely different thing. In a home school setting there aren't other pupils for that student to interact with and so it's important to provide them with the opportunity to learn how to interact. One of the most important things with teaching the life skill of social interaction is to increase the amount of social interaction that that student has. In a home school setting, ensure that much of the learning is interactive. Find people the same age as the student and encourage the interaction socially with those individuals. That's the very best way to learn the life skill of social interaction. Clearly you can also teach that life skill didactically by giving examples. You can have that student read about social interaction, read books that talk about it, read books that demonstrate it, but by far the very best way is to encourage social interaction. Find other home schooled students, get with those parents that home school their students and provide opportunities during their academic week to get together to talk about what they might be learning or to just simply have fun activities that they enjoy together.
