How would you moms like a place to go to that was similar to cafe mom but in person?

I'm a child care provider and I find that my parents ask my advice just like we do on here and I was just thinking maybe there are other moms out here that could use the same type of help. This is my way to see if this is something we would enjoy.

The group would meet twice a month for about 2 hours to vent, receive/give advice, and try to solve some of the problems we face as moms. I'm really interested in what you guys think but please be nice even if you think it's a waste of time.

  • I personally see it as a good idea. There are not any places like that where I live and would love to see something like that happen. All the professionals give good advice but its so much better when you get it from someone who has been there and done that not just read a text book.

  • We have something like this for women (not only mothers) called Girlfriendz and once a month or so the area churches get together to put on skits, dinner, demonstrations, games.

  • Those are the kind of things that I was planning to do with my groups and also have professionals to come in from time to time to speak with the group. Do you think it should be opened up to females and not just mothers txdaniella?

    I also agree with you angelmine2011. It's nothing like getting advice from someone who is walking in your shoes.

  • I think it should be open to all. That way women who are wanting or are planning to get pregnant can go in and find out what things are like and they can get advice early on.

  • I agree with you angelmine2011. I didn't think about the women planning to get pregnant. This is why I posted this questions to see what I'm missing and to get you guys opinion. Thank you so much for opinion, it is helping me a lot.

  • i think that would be nice... getting to chit chat with other moms in person and getting advice or giving.. but more just getting to hang out.

  • Its a great idea if you could get it up and going. I would go to something like that often if for nothing else but the adult conversation.

  • Its a great idea! I know some moms have no mommy friends close by, and having mommy is friends is sooo nice. They get it, all of it. And it is always nice to get out and maybe learn something fun you can do with your baby!
    I would definitely go to one of those!
