  2. 2. Anna Karwińska &Katarzyna Sanak-Kosmowska Cracow University of Economics The world is not so wonderful: Dillemas of socialization SOCIALIZATION IS THE PROCESS THROUGH WHICH A HUMAN BEING LEARNS THE WAY OF LIFE OF HIS/HER SOCIETY AND DEVELOPS THE CAPACITY TO FUNCTION BOTH AS AN INDIVIDUAL AND AS A MEMBER OF THE GROUP. FOR THE INDIVIDUAL SOCIALIZATION IS THE PROCESS WHEREBY HE / SHE DEVELOPS A SELF, AND LEARNS TO RELATE TO OTHERS AROUND HIM / HER. 2

  4. 4. Anna Karwińska &Katarzyna Sanak-Kosmowska Cracow University of Economics The world is not so wonderful: Dillemas of socialization SOCIALIZATION DILLEMAS Children are being perceived as too innocent and too fragile to face the conflicts and difficult problems of contemporary world. On the other hand they should be socialized to a „real world” not to the idealized version of social reality, if they are to cope with unavoidable threats and problems. To keep them unaware of existing threats and problems means that they are not prepared and equipped for these challenges. 4
  5. 5. Anna Karwińska &Katarzyna Sanak-Kosmowska Cracow University of Economics The world is not so wonderful: Dillemas of socialization SOCIALIZATION DILLEMAS At the same time children - depending on many factors: age, social environment, current economic and political situation of the country, etc. - - at the same time aware of the various phenomena and processes difficult and - at the same time aware of being excluded from the discourse (usually for "their own good"). What's more, they are also victims of this situation, both the scale of the macro problems (eg. poverty) and micro-scale of their everyday experiences, which are often marked by violence, a sense of loneliness or lack of understanding. 5
  6. 6. Anna Karwińska &Katarzyna Sanak-Kosmowska Cracow University of Economics The world is not so wonderful: Dillemas of socialization SOCIALIZATION DILLEMAS The problem thus it is not WHY expose them to real world but rather HOW to do it. There is a need for expansion of the socialization beyond the regular curricula existing in the majority in educational institution. At the same time there is a need for new methods and tools that could be used in such a process. Also the cooperation between schools and other educational institutions is needed. Here is a great task for Children’s Universities. 6
