Does anyone know of a "support group" type thing, online for kids that homeschool?  I know of plenty for the moms and dads but haven't found one for the kids to use.

Thanks!

There are some on Yahoo Groups, but I won't let my son join them, as most are not moderated.  Also, for kids under 13, there are specific 'net laws.

My son takes online classes through G3.  For $35 a year, you can subscribe to the heavily moderated (by me and another HS mom) social forums (don't have to be a G3 student), get technology seminars, and also a subscription to BrainPop.com (well worth the price right there).  Here's the info:
