Proper socialization

"When I mention we are homeschooling our children, we are without fail asked, '...But what about socialization?' Fortunately, we found a way our kids can receive the SAME socialization that government schools provide: "On Mondays and Wednesdays, I will personally corner each child in the bathroom and take their lunch money. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, I will make sure to tease our children for not being in the 'in' crowd, taking special care to poke fun at any physical abnormalities. ... Fridays will be 'Fad and Peer Pressure Day.' We will all compete to see who has the coolest toys, the most expensive clothes, and the loudest, fastest, and most dangerous car. Every day, I will adhere to a routine of cursing, being disrespectful, swearing in the hall, and mentioning our weekend exploits with alcohol and immorality. And we have asked our kids to report us to the authorities in the event that we mention faith, religion, or try to bring up any morals and values.
