Strength in Numbers (pages 20, 210)
by Rebecca Ponton
Parents aren't the only ones who can feel isolated
by homeschooling. Often, if kids are not enrolled at a local school,
they're not allowed to participate in sports and other school-sponsored
activities. Therefore, the burden is on parents to find creative
and social outlets for their children.
While church youth groups and musical activities,
such as band and choir, are possibilities, as are Boy and Girl
Scout programs, more homeschooling parents and their children
are turning to support groups to help meet their need for social
interaction . . .
