How to start my own group?

I would like to start a group for stay at home parents of school age children. It's wonderful to have playgroups in the summertime but I would like to offer a group for parents to get together during the school year to help keep us active (and sane :-). Most playgroups cater to toddlers.

  • Go to groups and click "create a group".

    Then promote it at

    Talk to moms you know who might be interested. Ask the owners of some of the groups you're on if you can post about it (some might be OK with it while others won't allow ask first!).

  • What would you do at your group? Have a book club? Go to lunch somewhere? Just curious as to what you are looking for in a group while your kid(s) are in school? I started a book club...but nobody in it has school age children.
