Looking to Connect with Other Homeschooling Families?

children with teepeeHave you found other homeschooling families in your area that you can regularly meet up with?
Do your children get to play and talk with other homeschooled children at least every couple of weeks?
Have you found other homeschooling parents you can easily talk to about homeschool questions and ideas, or whenever you need a little moral support?

If you answered “No” to any of the above questions then here are some things that may help you.

#1.  Your cover school should have someone that you can either e-mail or call with any questions you might have.

#2.  There are numerous online groups for homeschool discussions, curriculum  discussions, field trips and outdoor adventures.  Below I’ve listed some Facebook groups that serve a variety of purposes.

#3.  Be willing to plan a park get-together or field trip yourself.  Even if you don’t know anyone else that is homeschooling, join a few online groups and introduce yourself and the ages of your children.  You may just be surprised to find out how many others have children the same age as yours.  (Side note: Don’t put too much emphasis on age.  Some of our 8yr old’s best friends are a 12 yr old and a 6 yr old.  Age doesn’t matter as much as similar interests.)
