Paz Posted February 15, 2008 Share Posted February 15, 2008 I always saw this as a positive but today I was wondering. We homeschool and she plays softball at the local high school. We attend church. Right now she doesn't attend a youth group or other homeschool events because 1) she has some sensory issues and can't handle the loud music, noise and 2) we're very busy with other things. She does have a brother, a male personal trainer in his 20's, and interacts with my brother and my co-worker. she doesn't really show much interest in boys, says she doesn't have the time for them. But today she came home from softball a little sad about some things. Some of the girls on her team got flowers from little friends in school, others (older girls) got stuffed animals/flowers from their boyfriends. She told me about it and mentioned that it wasn't worth going to public school for this. It's not that I want her to have attention from young men but I am wondering if she is not learning the social interaction and if this will make things difficult later in life? (She is able to talk to most adults of either gender, she is not as comfortable around peers when they are talking about music or boys.)
