I am brand new to the site, 29, single mom of a little boy who'll be 3 in just under 2 weeks, and a full time online college student. There are no other kids in my family and I don't know local moms so he doesn't get enough kid interaction and needs to work on social skills. He does toddler story time but they don't play, they just sit and listen, and he sometimes goes to the McDonald's playground but he's scared of the weird playscape they have there. He likes regular park playscapes, but there's never any kids at the local parks. He's a bit behind in his speech and is getting help on that. His speech has improved drastically since December but still most of it isn't intelligible to the average person, with some exceptions. He'll be starting Head Start in the fall and I really want to improve his social skills before then since he'll be in an environment with several other kids at once, something he doesn't really have experience with. I'd like to find some local moms if possible, but all the support, networking, and socialization I can get, given the minimal time I have, would be awesome. I look forward to meeting other moms.
