3 Ways to Help Your Home-Schooled Child Meet Other Children
Providing socialization opportunities for homeschooled children is just as important as their education. There are many ways to meet up with other children for the social aspect of life including:
Homeschooling groups – many areas offer organized homeschooling events where children and their parents can get together for activities like field trips and dances.
Sports programs – community sports groups are a great opportunity for homeschoolers to get physically active while meeting new friends. Check with the local recreation board or school district to find recreational programs.
Playdates – taking kids to the local park can be an effective way to make new friends in your own neighborhood. If you live in a rural location, arrange playdates with the children of friends and family members.
