Next week, we will experience again the homeschooled kid's woe. Because of being homeschooled, most of my kids' friends live far enough away that it requires parents to plan a get together. We do make plans, but my kids would love to just go outside and play with other kids. With the exception of two, there aren't any in the neighborhood that my kids are playmates with. The oldest has nobody around home that she hangs out with. It seems to be the public school "socialization." The same thing happens to some extent to those other kids I mentioned earlier. They go to private school and their classmates don't live in the neighborhood. It's been my experience that homeschooled kids play with everyone regardless of what grade or class they're in. In a nutshell, my kids feel left out in a neighborhood crawling with kids. They're not shy- they're avoided because they're considered weird. The others just don't know them well, don't see them in school, so don't include them in their activities. It's even harder because it's their dad who is home during the day and not their mom. What are you other homeschool dads experiencing at this time of year?
