"My middle daughter was not excited about homeschooling. She is very social and enjoyed time with her friends. This was very difficult for both of us. I knew homeschooling was the right thing for our family, but I also saw her need to be with other kids.
My daughter was respectful at the time, but we knew it was difficult for her. To be honest, this took a while to overcome. It wasn't a lack of social interaction, but different interaction.
What could we do to help her?
The first year we homeschooled, I organized a Girls Club. During our first meeting, the girls chose a topic they wanted to study. Each week, we met at a different girl's home. That girl and her mom planned a hands-on activity. One semester we studied Greece. If I remember correctly (about 13 years ago), the girls made sandals, had Olympics, learned some Greek and did other activities.
