My Sister has 3 girls, Year 7, Year 6 and Year 5.
She has friends and cousins etc all with children but the children are all younger than hers. Her girls are the oldest and she is finding especially her oldest DD seems to be alone alot of the time as the other kids are "too young to play with"
She is thinking about getting the girls into something so they are around children more their age when they are out of school and to also maybe have the possibility of forming friendships with parents of these children etc. Maybe longterm grow to have a friendship with parents that have children the same age.
She is thinking of seeing if they want to join girl guides, i also suggested check out the PCYC clubs in her area.
Her kids do go to activities outside of school which hasn't really led to anything. They go to dancing etc and also to youthgroup which is only once a month but its all the kids they go to school with.
Do any of you have any other suggestions.
I suggested also maybe little athletics but does anyone have any other ideas i can pass on to her.
