Is this enough socialisation?

DD just been taken out of school. She will see one or two of her friends from school maybe once a fortnight and she attends a drama group once a week (but that's structured so no 'free play' element). Is that enough without joining local HE groups? It doesn't sound like much but I have other DCs and other commitments so don't really want to join HE groups.

Why is it that you don't want to join HE groups? Could you maybe meet some local HE families and meet up for a playdate if you don't want to go to a group? Does she have any siblings of a similar age?

Just because of other time commitments, Eau. She has younger siblings and will be going back to school in 6 months so it's a temporary thing.

As a temporary thing it is fine-6 months is nothing. You could see if she is interested in anything else-some activity where you just drop her off and could lift share.

Ah, if it's a temporary thing then I see no problem at all. Just maintain the school-based friendships as much as you can.

Keep lots of activities going for her, though, if she wants them?

Thanks, all.
