i have noticed that all the friends i had befor i had my daughter just don't seem to want to hang out as much and i don't have many married friends with kids. The people i do meet who have kids my daughters age and alway much older then me i find it hard to find people with toddlers and are in there 20's. I still hang out with a few people who don't have kids and they are really good with my daughter but i think it would be good for my Faith if i had more friends with kids her age. I guess the question is where would be a good place to meet young parents? may be a stupid question but i had to ask someone

It is hard to find people in their 20s with kids, my twins are just over a year. Where is everyone else from?

amanda, i am in the same boat!!!! i have an almost 7 year old and my baby just turned 1. 99% of our friends dont have kids and that makes it really hard to meet and be able to hang out with anyone at all. i wish it werent this way of course!!!!

i didnt start making friends until my oldest son ben was in kindergarten...then i had a chance to meet a few new people that i thought would be fun to have play dates with becuz my son was their kdis' age. now my son is in soccer and that gives us a great opportunity as well.

for you, if your kids arent in school or sports..maybe get involved in parents/childrens museums and stuff!!!! does she have daycare. maybe you could approach one of the parents there? the age thing is awkward always...the only people with kids we get to hang out with often are in thier late 30s...lol...10 years older than us...so its more like its mostly for thekids.

sorry if im not much help! good luck.

I have that same problem, so I know exactly what you're going through. Try seeing if your area has playgroups, or the park, or even story time for kids in your child's age range. I signed my twins up for a playtime, and although i'm the youngest one there, it's great for both the kids and myself.
