The Socialization of Children

"Kids need to learn to work with other kids," they say. "Why?", I must ask. "When will they be working with other kids as adults?" Haha! No, really, think about it. As adults, they won't be using working-with-kids skills, they'll be using working-with-adults skills. Right? In preparation for adulthood, shouldn't kids be among adults? Shouldn't they be learning to communicate with adults? Shouldn't their primary socialization be with adults? It's not a no-brainer until you put your brain on it. It makes complete sense. Now, give yourself a facepalm and say "Duh!".
