Why is it so hard to find a support group? Is it important to be a part of a group?

    I will look into that website right now. :-)

    I found this one for you, looks like there are a few support groups there. Good luck!




    Quoting BautifuHart9699:

    I live in Puerto Rico. It has taken me 4yrs to be able to get to the point where I am now. People don't have info about Homeschooling like that. But I will do the search on google to see if I can find something.






    Quoting arwalters:

    I've found a couple online and will join one soon I think. Also maybe ask around your neighborhood and church to see if anyone else is homeschooling. Google homeschool in your town, maybe something will come up. If there is a mom's club, more than likely someone in the group hs or knows someone who does. Gl

    This may help explain them a little better. http://www.fpea.com/what-is-a-homeschool-co-op/

    The one I run is parent run. Parents volunteer and pay a small fee for supplies. We meet at the local library so there are no room costs.

    What's co op?





    Quoting jen2150:

    I have great online and local support.  I do not know what I would do without my local support.  I wouldn't say you need it but when I meet with our friends I feel so much better.  I also run my own co-op and I absolutely love giving help to new homeschoolers.  It can be tough finding your way when you first start especially when your kids are older.  I strongly suppest homeschoolers check yahoo for local groups or start your own.  You can decide how much you are involved.  Local advice can be really helpful.  I am also very social and so are my kids.  We have about 3 weekly co-ops and love them all.

    It really is the hardest. My first 6 months I cried daily! Lol hand in there!

    love this answer. New at homeschooling, too. And this is so comforting--and true!

    What state are you in? You aren't lost. You are at the very beginning. 8) you haven't even taken a step so nothing you have done or not done is wrong.

    I'm pretty sure once I have everything under control I will have enough time. If I choose to do a group I will make sure i'll have help.


    Quoting sdgd21:

    I understand that. So easy to start. It's just take up a but of time. And as your starting out, you may not have much time. Lol



    Quoting BautifuHart9699:

    I will once I get the hang of Homeschooling. But I'm just starting myself.






    Quoting sdgd21:

    Start one :-)

    Thank you. I think of this to be a group as well. Take care. :-)


    Quoting kmath:

    I consider this a support group, and to me it is essential.  Are you talking about a local one?

    Thank you for your input it's very appreciated. :-)


    Quoting polka.dot.:

    i agree, it is very important to have a support system , i am new to this group but i love to talk to other moms in here ,it is a great start to a support system, or you could start your own . If you go to church, just ask around, talk to childrens services, parenting groups in your local area to find out if they have groups or if you could start one

    I look forward to your responds. You are very helpful and positive. THANK YOU. :-)


    Quoting mem82:

    I think it depends on your situation. Online support is really all I need, but that's the way I am. Some people thrive with the face to face.
