    Would like a friend for my home schooled 2 and half year old in Birmingham.

    As-salaamu alaikum.

    I am a mother to Aisha (6 months) and Ibraheem (2 and a half). I made the decision to home school when Ibraheem was born and Alhamdhulillah, have not had any doubts about that decision but one thing I would like for my son is a play mate. Someone he can do an activity with and communicate with.

    So I was wondering, if there are any mothers out there in the same situation as me, who can come to my house for an hour or so to do an activity and have some playtime. I also go to wibbly wobbly once a week, which is an indoor play area with slides and quads but again after half an hour Ibraheems done because theres no one with him. Its a 15 minute walk from my house. I dont mind coming to your house either. All these are just ideas. Nothing will be set until we talk about it. I also have a park couple of minutes from my house which is good for the summer. It has ducks to feed, playing field for them to run about and fishes to spot in the moat.

    Of course I wouldn't want a personality clash so heres a brief description of Ibraheem. He isn't violent, not forward when he meets new children but once he comes out of his shell, he's playful. We don't have a tv so he doesn't have a clue about ben10 or any other characters. He loves cars and lego. MashAllah, he knows his arabic alphabet and can recite surah Fatiha and Ikhlas but hasn't perfected it yet. He is well mannered. Sometimes, hes out of character and has to go naughty corner but hes never been in it more than once in a day so Alhamdhulillah!

    So if you do have a child or know of anyone like me, please let them know. Of course I will provide juice, fruit and cakes and inshaaAllah it'll help alot with the upbringing of our children.

    If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

    Jazakh Allah Khairun for reading this.

    Walaikum Salaam.

    Green Lane mosque apparently have something for people who home-school their kids. You should go there and enquire. You come across weird posting these kind of pleas on the net.

    Assalaamu alaikum sisters.

    The sister who told me about the yahoo group - jazakh Allah khairun! That was very helpful.

    Second and third sister - Jazakh Allah khairun for your concerns and advice. Of course I would have extensive communication prior to opening my doors to anyone.

    Fourth sister - I was insulted when you stated that I came across weird. Before judging me, you should have asked me more questions about what I was trying to achieve. Only then, would you have understood my angle.

    Once again, jazakh Allah khairun for your input.

    you can try netmums local, its a mix of non muslim & muslim but just contact the people you feel you will have more in common with. we moved area recently so i found some other muslim mums from on there & now we do meet ups in the area which is nice
    and what about surestart if you have childrens centres in your area it would be worth checking them out, some are better than others but it doesnt hurt to look incase yours is good
