Not long ago a friend of mine sent me an email and asked the following question:
“I was just wondering what your kids do for fun with other kids and how that gets organized? My son seems to think he is missing out on some of the fun.”
Do your kids ever feel like they are missing out? I think it’s normal for teenagers to think that way on occasion, whether or not they are homeschooled. I know mine do and it doesn’t seem to matter how busy we can be or what we’ve been up to. I especially noticed this when we moved and they were no longer surrounded by their close friends. So in an effort to meet new people and to discourage the uttering of the dreaded, “Mom, I’m bored”, we branched out of our comfort zone and took a peek into our community to see what activities are offered for teens.
Curious? I hope you’ll pop on over to The Homeschool Classroom and read the rest of the article, Socializing Your Teens, and share some of the ways that you encourage your teens to meet and interact with others.
