where do you take your toddlers to have fun and interact ?

my toddler is the first child. so ofourse no brothers and sisters to play with. almost all our relatives are living far so we don't get to meet them that often. i'm a stay at home mom so day care's out too (plus it's too expensive). the whole day he just sees me and his dad. so whenever we go somewhere like a friend's place or something, he freaks out and starts crying. he clings on to either one of us the whole time. so is there a day care type of place where parents take their toddlers so they can play, interact, have fun, socialize and make friends? what are these types of places called ? i can google it and see if there's one around where i live

  • Look at your local civic center or parks dept, ours has teddy bear tumbers, book time, music classes for little ones, just fun and easy cheap ways to interact

  • The library, the grocery store, the fire hall, the playground, the mall, the police station, the beach, the dog park, museums, art galleries, restaurants, government offices, friends' homes, senior centers and extended care facilities...

    It struck me that children have a very limited 'need' for people their own age, compared to how large a need they have for interacting with real people doing real work in the real world. I promise you, your kid does not care if the smiling, happy face who is familiar is a librarian, a little old man from down the street or the clerk at the local grocer.
