I know this may sound like a dumb question to some but how can I socialize my kids? The only reason they say they want to go back to school is to make friends. They are six and seven. My son is shy and school was more of a challenge for him. He didn't make friends easily because he is timid around other kids. Plus kids are mean and he was the one they liked to pick on. Although the girls loved him according to his teacher. He is extremely smart though. He finished his class in the top 1% in the nation for reading. He cathces on extremely fast. This is one reason I think he is more timid. He is smart and talks about things that other kids have no interest in. His biggest subjects that he talks and reads about constantly are the Bible and the World Wars. My son attended K last year and my daughter pre-k. There are no HS groups where I am. I live in a very small town in the middle of nothing. The closest HS groups that I have been told are an hour or more away. My DH isn't working right now, so I can't really afford to drive them anywhere that far. I also have a 21 month old and my schedule revoles around her a lot! I don't know of any other HS families in my area. Just not sure what to do. I don't want my kids to feel left out but honestly the only thing that really bothers me is their lack of interaction with other kids... I am positive I am doing the right thing for them as far as their education. I have been HS since last August. Thanks in advance.
