Homeschool Teens "Chat"/"Facebook"?

Ok - what happened to fire fly or whatever it was?

Jake is seriously in need of some socialization with other HS'ers - even if it's on a network site since he wants to attach himself to a computer.

Any suggestions?

ooo I just read an article on this topic.

There is myspace, FB, ning, http://www.teenhomeschoolhang.com/ http://homeschoolslikeus.com/home.php

Also search yahoo groups you can do a search for national or local groups. Some might involve parents and meeting locally others are just email loops for the teens to "chat" through posts and emails.

Does Jake have X-Box live??? My DS is on there all the time. Since we live so far away from his friends he stays in touch that way.

Honestly, my youngest is just a homebody - the total opposite of my oldest who is a social buterfly. I can remember looking out the back window when she was little - she as walking around to the neighbors houses introducing herself. LOL...she was no more than 5 - it was a really safe neighborhood thankfully, because she was a litle people magnet.

But my son is like me - likes to be at home doing his thing. I can't wait for him to be 16 though - I am totally sending him off to community college for at least a few classes. He's not into Facebook or My Space (Unlike older sister) Heck - he won't even carry his cell phone unless I force him.

I sent him to fusefly.com

That's the one I was thinking about.

Too tired to chat right now I promise to get back after this LONG weekend is over.

Yes, it filled in some of the "gaps." In fact, I found this Spot, because I was searching for something for DD. Does Rachel still hang out there? Another one is:

Yes, she does, but not as much as she use to. This past summer, she went to AWANAS Scholarship Camp. It was a very small group, and the kids really developed a closeness as a result. She's kept in close touch with them on Facebook, so she's not been at the Hang as much.
