This is an essay that explores the role of the adult in the children’s development of social skills. The idea that socialization is a process that develops spontaneously by simply allowing children to interact freely with one another is a way for the adult to default on an important aspect of early childhood education. It is true that unsupervised children who spend a lot of time interacting together will somehow learn by imitation and peer pressure to get along with one another. But it is also true that this method tends to reward the strongest at the expense of the weakest; it tends to emphasize the concept that socializing is not primarily based on the application of fairness and justice. In fact, unsupervised social interaction often leads children to learn the bad moral lesson that, in this life, the violators of fairness and justice are more likely to gain at the expense of others and honesty.
