Group's Purpose & Posting Guidelines (FAQs)

This is intended as a place where parents who have young children can connect. It is important to get out of the house to socialize and to keep everyone in the family active, happy and healthy.

Connect here, communicate, make friends, form playgroups, organize walks. Make a play date, go to the splash pad, do fitness together. Meet friends to arrange free kid-minding days, for grocery shopping day, to shop alone! Bliss!

Feel free to share information about upcoming family or kid specific events, fun things in the area, safety about toys. Provide information and referrals for reliable sitters & daycare, etc.

Importantly, for those post partum, so you are not stuck in the house for days on end... this group is a place where you can reach out and communicate with others in the same position – which is a lifesaver and a guard against isolation and depression. Know that you are not alone.

If yes to either, please feel free to post, but if in doubt, please ask!
