HEM’s Questions & Answers – May-June 2011
Peer Pressure from Former Homeschooler
We need serious help dealing with peer pressure. We homeschool largely because our daughter, going on 13, is at the top of her field and currently competing in pre-Olympic trials. Her best friend recently quit both competing and homeschooling to attend school. All she talks about is what my daughter is missing. Now my daughter feels left out in terms of boys, fashion, the latest music, movies and fun. Every call and text leaves her more miserable and questioning her life choices. We’d like to have a little chat with this menace of a friend but know that would backfire. What should I do? – angry parents
