Homeschooling Chats on the Web
Chats give you a way to network with other homeschoolers in real-time and, in some active ones, you can find people there a lot. There are several chats on the web, that I know of, that you can access through your web browser. As I find or hear of more, I will post them. If you have a group of friends that you would like to chat with, there is at least one server, that I know of, who will allow you to start your own room.

ParentsPlace.com This area is a special treat. It is aimed at all parenting issues. It has a homeschool message board & a homeschool chat! If you register for the message boards, they will let you know when there is a response to your message via e-mail. You MUST register with the board to use the chats. You can either try to connect up with homeschoolers in one of the general rooms or you can connect with them through a scheduled homeschool chat. There is even a chat area for kids!
To access the chats, choose either then General chat area or the Special chat area. There is a choice in each of these to register. Just follow the directions & they will e-mail you with the final step. Then you have access. In the general chat area, I think that most of the homeschoolers hang out in the Mom's Place Forum. The scheduled chat is on Tuesdays at 3 pm EST.
