Thanks for all your comments and suggestions. My olest is almost 5 and littlest is 16 months. Its hard when your young and have kids where I live if your like under 30 moms wont even talk to me. Or they will get my email or number and never call. We dont have older kids in our community. Does anyone like in Richmond? I am not sure if I can even ask that question. Thanks again

My daughter is only 3 months old but her father works from 9am until 10pm. It really is hard to find alot of people that have kids and know what its like to put family first. I dont have much to help out with on this one but i know alot of people make friends at the park where kids play! Obviously i can't try that yet lol cause mine just started rolling on her tummy on her own. BUT if i could that is what i would try first! :) good luck!!!

We have mom groups here to go to but I don't drive so It's a little bit of a trek and all the other moms are in their 30's and beyond. I'm 21.

I dont have any friends around here either. I try to take my 17 month old son to the park and what not to meet people but I look so young people usually dont approach me. Maybe check your local community center or church, like I am going to do. Or google local playgroups.

I am in the same boat. I have a 2.5 year old and a 15 month old. I'll have to look into the library reading time and see when that is.

Where do you live? I have a whole neighborhood full of kids for my kids to play with....are there any kids in your neighborhood? If you see them outside just take your kids out there.

When we moved 2 hrs south of where we lived I had the same problem. I found a great way to meet stay at home moms is to go to the playground during the day. That is where you will meet lots of other stay at home moms. That is where I met 2 really good friends of mine and then you get to meet their friends and before you know it you will have a big circle of friends that have almost the same schedule as you!!!!

I live in a small town. Don't get me wrong I love living in the country, but at the time there's alot of gossip. I am not comfortable around that setting & I don't want my three year old twins in that enviroment. I wish I could find another mother that has children who doesn't gossip and that my children can get along with. All the children in my neighbour hood are all older, so my children start to pick up their bad habbits.

We have a local play centre that a bunch of moms go to with their kids. It's great! But I find it's hard to get them out of there. No one in terested in play dates, or coffee etc. But, it is a great place. One side of the building is really just a large toy room with a sitting area and a kitchen for coffee and snacks, the other side is a toy library. Mt daughters and I go almost on a regualr basis. It a government organization, maybe contact your social services and ask them ?? I'm in northern ontario... I don't knwo if the US has stuff like that.

i do have that problem! and i feel sometimes like my son ( who is 4 ) has no friends because i dont know anyone. I hate it. Ive found out that my church does activities for stay at home moms, like playdate in the park, or meeting at the library. I know that the pubic library does story time for the kids and also some really big book stores will do it sometimes too. Id check into your near by churches, book stores, library, and even the community agenda. Good luck
