Making new friends and building a growing support system is a special skill anyone can benefit from. I learned to overcome my shyness and ask for other mom´s phone numbers and make the first move to makes us meet again. This way, I find new friends for both me and my child.
I also learned that offering myself to help first is key in receiving help. Whenever I can, I offer myself to babysit for others and end up with a ¨credit¨ of assistance for later.
