I'm concerned about my DIL and grandson. They don't get out of the house much during the week and I just don't know how she maintains her sanity. Mind you, she never complains - she seems content and our grandson is doing just fine, maybe just a tad slow at verbalizing, but I just know that getting out with other people once in a while is so refreshing to your mindset! What do you think?
Check and see if there is a local MOMS Club chapter in your area. I know it made a huge difference for me, although if she's not complaining about it, you might have to approach it from the perspective of socialization being good for your grandson. Hope that helps. Good luck! http://momsclub.org/

I think everyone does what is best for them. When I first started staying home I didn't know a lot of other moms and I wasn't sure how to go about finding play groups. Since we were going into summer I just spend most of my time with kids either going to the park or local pools or staying home. After 6 months I couldn't stand it so I started really looking into play groups. School had also started so it made life easier because my oldest was in Kindergarten and my middle one was in preschool. I meet a lot of parents that way and started going to play groups. That was over 9 years ago and I have to say while taking the first step was hard I am glad I did because those moms are my best friends.
Maybe she just isn't sure about play groups or how her child will react to them. You could maybe talk to her a little although I won't worry to much. Everyone is different.
