I have an only child who is about to turn 4 y/o. I worked really hard (I mean super hard) to build up friendships from the time she was born since we have no family or close friends where we live now. I found some great moms/kids, most of whom are attachment, green & natural, etc. We had a lot of fun and play dates for a couple of years.
I am literally the only one who decided to homeschool. Every single one of dd's friends is now in preschool at least part time. So other than birthdays and really rare occasions she never sees her friends anymore. We go to story time at the library and a gymnastics class but that's it for socializing. I've tried the local homeschool group but naturally nothing is geared towards kids as young as her and we felt very out of place.
It's like we are in this limbo where we she is too young or too old for everything. It really sucks. We do a lot of fun things together but I can tell she is bored and lonely too often.
Did anyone else feel this way? Does it get better or easier as time goes on? Any advice?
