Mrozek, Andrea. (2012, August 30). Nurturing children: Why “early learning” doesn’t help. EReview: Latest Developments in Family Friendly Research, 12(18). Retrieved 7/11/13 from http://www.imfcanada.org/sites/default/files/ereview_august_30_12_0.pdf. (Homeschooling is not a significant focus of this paper but author refers to some homeschool research, using it to support the concept that children do not need institutional schooling for children to be properly socialized. “Ironically, some who advocate for homeschooling do so in order for proper socialization to occur” (p. 4). Author appears friendly toward homeschooling. “Children should start attending school later, not earlier, Canadian development psychologist Dr. Gordon Neufeld reveals. “Early learning” programs for young children have no benefits for kids, he adds. So why are governments running down the opposite track?” (p. 1).) (Keywords: early childhood education, socialization, attachment, homeschooling, research, Canada)
