I recently received an email from a reader named Patti who had such a fantastic idea that I had to share it here (and add it to the Social Groups page ):
“I was reading the posts in your website and clearly most of our kids have little socialization opportunities. I was wondering if parents (local or in other parts of the country) would be interested in helping their kids use Skype so they can actually see and get to know each other over the internet and hopefully eventually meet. Why wait for local kids in our area to have our kids start making friends when there are so many kids across the country waiting to have pals.”
It’s definitely one of those why-didn’t-I-think-of-that? ideas! If you’re interested, please contact Patti at firstname.lastname@example.org , and thanks for helping our kids connect!
