People have many different reasons for homeschooling their children. Whatever your reason you are not alone.

Make sure you get in touch with other homeschooling families in your area. Finding encouragement in homeschooling is pretty easy. Reach out to area homeschoolers. They are usually warm, welcoming people who will encourage you in your homeschool journey.

Join a homeschool group. Many groups meet frequently and plan field trips and other fun activities. Homeschool groups are also starting to form sports teams your children can participate in. Some even have tournaments open to all teams.

Extra curricular activities don’t have to be sponsored by the public school system. Our local park and recreation department has soccer, baseball, hockey, basketball, cheerleading, and all kinds of activities for everyone. Homeschooled and public school kids all participate together.

A lot of local community centers offer classes and activities for kids too. Check out your local YMCA for even more things for your kids to do.

The internet also offers lots of encouragement. Join a homeschool forum or bulletin board group. You can find curriculum ideas, sympathy and encouragement on these boards most of the time. Very infrequently someone posts something negative, but I've found that it is rare.

Homeschooling does not mean isolation. Connect with other homeschoolers and have fun.
