How do you socialize your children?

How many times have you been asked this question and how many times has the inquirer been intent on not listening to your answer?  I always crack up when people ask about socialization in the same breath of commenting how polite, pleasant, well-spoken, friendly, (insert other evidence of well-socialized children) my children are, yet continue to stick with their opinions regardless of what I answer or what they can view with their own eyes.

I think we've all experienced conversations like the one in the following video, haven't we?

LOL. I love the robot voice "how do you socialize your chidren?" The best reply that I have ever heard was along the lines of "How is putting a child in a room with 30 other students of the same age, facing in the same direction for 8 hours a day considered socialization? Where else in society does that happen?"
