I want to get out more and I would like to start a young mom's group in my town (it's small) and would like to know if anyone has suggestions about how to start it and what you do in your get togethers. Thanks

I know that the group that I'm apart of uses meetup.com to schedule events and it also lets people find you on their own- it might work better because we are in a city (but it's not a huge place) Facebook would also work well too...

Our group has two types of get togethers- the main playdates where we sit around and every mom gets a chance to talk about what's going on with them- good and bad- or ask for advice or share challenges...etc. We also plan other types of events- "outings" both with our kids and without them- picnics, coffee nights, walks in the park, etc.

I hope your group takes off! Best wishes~>

A friend and myself just started a mom's group in our town. We started with inviting friends from facebook using Circle of Moms (started our own group) and they invited some more friends and so on...we are up to 25 now! We push strollers on the walking path in our park every Monday, and then on Thursdays plan a different event, such as a local playland, at one of our houses, swimming, etc... the last Friday of each month we have a mom's only night, and then we also plan a whole family event. I would try to gte a friend to help out, it has been a lot of work getting ours started, but we were surprised how quickly it took off. Hope this helps!
