I used to attend parenting groups. I didn’t make friends there because I had nothing in common with the moms who attended the groups.
I remember one time the group leader announced that we all had to make one friend that meeting, so that we would have someone to call at 3am. I said, “if you want someone to call at 3am, make friends with a night auditor, not a single parent”.
So the leader gave us mingling time and then got us to sit down and asked us, “ who have you decided you want to get to know better?”.
I said, “myself”.
They weren’t pleased with my answer.
Good parenting groups are worth the effort to find. That being said I have made more friends at University then I have at parenting groups.
Where did you meet most of your friends?
