The question on everyone’s lips, as old as homeschooling itself, is always, “What about socialization?”
Do you feel like people might have a point when they ask you that question? Do you feel alone in your homeschool endeavors or looking for more opportunities for social interaction for your children and yourself?
The good news is that in Santa Clarita there is no need to feel alone. There are multiple support groups and other opportunities for socializing.
Here are some free, open support groups:

California Teen Homeschoolers groups.yahoo.com/group/CaliforniaTeenHomeschoolers
FACE LA (this is in San Fernando Valley, but many people in SCV belong to it and activities and fieldtrips overlap) groups.yahoo.com/group/FaCE-LA
West Valley Homeschoolers (this is also in the San Fernando Valley, but many people in SCV belong to it and activities and fieldtrips overlap) – groups.yahoo.com/group/WValleyHomeschoolers
In my next article, I will talk about other possibilities for social interaction. Don’t miss it. Submit any questions you might have to me.
