DD is really upset that she doesn't have any other friends who are homeschooled. She will be 5 this year, and all her friends are either in school or going into school this year. We were looking into putting her in a co-op one day a week, just so she can meet some other homeschooled friends, but I don't like that they pick her academics. They do a lot of worksheets, and while it might spark her interest in a topic she hadn't thought of before, I just don't know what to think.
We also looked into a group that has weekly get togethers, not-back to school picnics, Valentines Day Parties, all the fun stuff, plus groups and clubs for when she gets older.
Do any of you belong to a co-op or group? Or both? Which do you think is better? And why or why do you not like one or the other?
