Playdates - how often and are too many overrated?

[deleted account] ( 2 moms have responded )

Hello fellow homeschooling mommies!! I am in the early years of homeschooling - my kidlets are 5, 2 1/2 and 5 months and have just started to pull back on our playdates. We go to church and Bible study weekly and I have come to the conclusion that a playdate every other week will be plenty for us - anything more just seems to be too much. I'm sure things will change over time as they grow and naps become a thing of the past :0) (which I'm hoping doesn't happen too soon!! :0)), but for now it seems right. What do you mommies do and what do you find works for you? Thanks for your thoughts!!

That sounds about right for when my kids were those ages. Now they are 8, 6, 5, and 3. The older two might go on playdates 1/week. The younger two, not usually unless I am going to visit friends. I also babysit a 5 y/o boy so he plays M-F with my kids, and his 8 y/o sister comes once a week. So I figure that helps eliminate the need for so many other playdates too. My older two also go to the Boys and Girls Club 2/month for drop-in activites. We also do other homeschool activities as a family.
