  • Get involved in anything/everything! PTA, church (if you attend), MOPS, HOA (if you have one), library storytime, strike up conversations at the playground, etc.

  • I always made it a point to take the kids directly to the park as soon as we moved, they would have a base set for friends. My kids make friends very easy, Ask other moms there if they would like to meet on xx day at xx time to let the kids play, offer to pack a lunch basket. Good luck in making new friends!

  • Volunteer at the school, the food shelf, the hospital, meet the parents of your kids new friends
