I'm not complaining, merely reflecting.
What do you think about starting, or belonging to homeschool support groups?
The reason that I ask is that so many people are really gung ho about joining these groups. They sign up, pay their dues, sign statements of faith, and do whatever else is necessary to become members of these groups.
After all of the little formalities, something happens to the groups, more often than not. What happens is the strangest phenomena that I have ever seen in my ten years of homeschooling.
Few, if anybody, participates.
Families RSVP for events, and then refuse to show up.
Other families suggest events, and then fail to come to that which they have created.
The excuses for this display of apathy are amazing and endless.
Coordinators and organizers are left with wasted time, lost money, and hurt feelings.
Are homeschool support groups needed or wanted at all?
