Moving? If you are a mom with young children, who has moved to a new area, you may be seeking out other moms with young children to meet and set up play dates. There are organizations out there that provide wonderful opportunities to meet other moms. Mom’s Club and MOPs offer moms of young children opportunities to meet. Mom’s Club offers activities for moms and their children to do together, social gatherings for moms, and guest speakers. I have met some great friends through Mom’s Club. They were very supportive and made meals for my family when my two youngest sons were born. MOPs (Mothers of Preschoolers) is another great organization. They are often affliated with churches. They offer women guest speakers and crafts to do together, while their children play with supervision. Meet Up online also offers a great opportunity to coordinate a group or find a group to meet up with young children. Parks, childrens’ museums and the mall offer other ways to meet moms with kiddos. After the dust settles and the boxes are unpacked, get out and explore. You will be surprised how quickly you will get to meet friends for both you and your children, which will help you get settled and feel comfortable in your new community.
