So, we've started a homeschool group this year and we have about 6 families. I plan meetings and activities, with lots of input from the other parents. The parents will tell me they'd like to do (fill in the blank) so I find a date and schedule, then the parents bail out at the last minute. This is very frustrating, especially when the activity involves much planning on my part as the leader. It's even more frustrating when the activity costs money and we don't have enough people show up for the reduced rate. (Like ice skating) Today is our Christmas party and we're going to an old folks home to sing. This morning, I've already had 2 families call and bail with silly excuses.:BangHead: How do you handle this in a small homeschool group? If we were bigger with dozens of families, it wouldn't be such an issue, but for now, even the loss of one or two families is a real pain for the rest of us.
