I have a teenager who has been homeschooling for a year and is feeling like she's in a cage. We don't keep her from any activities or restrict her in anyway from friends. Any suggestions? Mad

What activities does she currently do? Are any of them larger-scale activities such as swim team, regional math / spelling / science / geography / etc. contests, volunteering for community service, attending state homeschool (or any other) conventions? What activities would she be doing if she were still in public school? Some children are just used to having a lot of people around after spending time in public school, and home, even with socialization, seems somewhat more empty during the transition.

She is in the same activities as she was in public school, in fact even more. She volunteers at a hospital once a week, she plays volleyball, attends church activities, and nursering home volunteer.

Hmm, well then I have no idea what the problem would be. Could it have something to do with her age, rather than the fact that she's homeschooled?

If your daughter is not doing so already, I suggest she audit or take courses at the local college or community college. I have been doing that for the past year, and now most of my friends are college and grad students, which I love, as it is nice to be around people older and wiser than myself.

as a teen none of those are activities that probly apeal to her.

at 15 i think i would probly die if i had to do swim team, regional math / spelling / science / geography / etc. contests for fun.

the reason she feels she is in a cage is probly cuz she is hanging out with old people rather than kids her own age.


i kno that i much rather be at a friends house that with my mother or at a nursing home.


i also dont see a point in homeschooling a child that is not special needs your daughter seems like she is in a cages becuz she has spelling and nurseing home visits as hobbies.

try giving her her own space.

To each his own. My siblings have been doing swim team for several years now and enjoy it quite a bit. Same with math contests, the times we did those.
