There are many different homeschool groups that are established for the adults only. These homeschool groups can be Christian based or can be open to anyone that is currently actively homeschooling their children. Many of the adult-focused homeschool groups are designed to be educational in nature, providing lectures, seminars, workshops and classes specifically focused for the primary and secondary parent in a homeschool house.
If you are currently looking for a homeschool group that will provide a social outlet for everyone in your family, this is not the right group for your current needs. However, it is a good idea to consider joining a group like this for the educational benefits that are available to each of the parents in a homeschool environment. As the family grows into the homeschool curriculum and daily operations, there will be good and bad days; this is a fact of life.
Belonging to an academic co-op or homeschool group designed specifically for the struggling or accomplished homeschool parent provides resources, mentors, support and guidance for those in need and the opportunity for those that are successful to share their success stories and help others “see the light at the end of the tunnel.” While this group is not intended to fulfill the needs of the entire family, there is nothing that states relationships built in the group cannot extend into family sharing as a larger group outside of these meetings. Friendships that are founded on relationships for both the children and adults are enjoyable for all involved, and they build memories that last a lifetime.
