A meet up where Moms [or Dads] can come with their toddlers ages 12 – 24 months, both with and without special needs, to meet with other Moms, grab a cup of coffee, their toddler’s play with each other, talk about whatever they like.
We understand it can be very isolating to be a Mom [or Dad] at home with a little one, and this is an opportunity to chat, complain, be with others who are facing similar challenges, be inspired, be supported and make new friends.
We meet every other Wednesday in ALLY Advocacy Center, building #625. Come enjoy toys for the toddlers, doughnuts and coffee for the adults, and a little old fashion “grandmotherliness” from Penny Lewis, Administrative Director of Open Door Learning Center.
Children learn Social Skills as early as infancy. Toddlers need to be exposed to their peers to learn to handle the give and take of sharing, being autonomous from their parents, being able to deal with new situations outside the home, emotional regulation etc. Parents can enjoy a break from the isolation of the daily care of an infant or toddler, share techniques and strategies for dealing with the challenges of child rearing, such as bedtime woes, potty training, temper tantrums etc. develop a support group, meet other Moms who might socialize outside the M and M.
