New to Area, Need Play Dates for My Children (10 & 6)

Washington DC, MD

Hi. I'm new to the Crofton area and have two children. My son is 10 and my daughter is 6. My family have "semi" busy life-styles. We moved here last June from PG and my children still have not made any friends. We are one of possibly three African American families on the block. When my son attempted to make friends with the other children, he was not welcomed well--in fact they completely ignored him and didn't even speak to him. Needless to say, my son came back to the house fighting back tears and asking questions that I never thought he would have to ask in this new millenium. This was my son's first experience with someone of another race--unfortunately it was not a good one. I am looking for playdates for my children with others who have open minds. Not only is it important for my son to meet others in our new community, but I also want to show him that not all people are as ignorant as the ones he met. Some of my attempts included, placing them in neighborhood sports. They do not attend our community school, but the school where I teach. My children are well mannered kids just looking for a few good friends--regardless of race, culture, or class.

Older First-time Parents with 2 Yo Seeking Other Older Parents for Play Dates

Jacksonville, FL

My husband and I are first time parents; he's 49, and I'm 42. Our daughter is 2 years old and will be three in July. I'd like to meet other older parents with children similar to my daughter's age for play dates and social outings. My husband is a printer and I"m a school librarian. We enjoy eating out, movies, visiting railroads, model railroading, the zoo, nature walks, etc. We don't smoke or drink. Husband is mildly Christian :); I am I guess a "God in the outdoors" type of person. Don't want to be "converted" or "saved". Nothing against Christians, it just doesn't work for us. If you like backyard bbq's, nature hikes, beach trips, and playground time, we'd love to meet you!

Seeking a Playgroup in the East Valley-Gilbert Area

Phoenix, AZ

Hi All, I have recently joined a playgroup that said they would meet on weekends and but so far they have all been on weekdays and I still get invited to all the fun places but since it is during the week I can never go. I run a very small daycare during the day and my hubby takes our only car to work so Saturdays would be perfect for me. I have a 3.5yr old son that is ALL boy and needs friends his age and be able to express all his pent up energy. I also have a 5mo. old son but he doesnt need lots of friends quite yet...lol Since we moved out here a year ago I have not really met anyone that I can bond with and I really need some girl friends that understand what its like being busy with kids but also would like to take a break once in a while and go shopping and get coffee. I live off of Val Vista and Germann. You can also email me at [email protected]____.com...Thanks!

Young Toddler Playgroup

Detroit, MI

I have a 19 month old son and I am looking for a playgroup for young toddlers in Macomb County. We have done storytime at the Clinton-Macomb Library and are currently enrolled in a Parent-Toddler class (that will be ending this week) through St. Clair Shores Adult Ed. Not only would I like my son to be exposed to other toddlers, I'd also like the opportunity to chat with other toddler moms. I actually teach a Parent-Toddler class in Troy but my son is not quite old enough to be enrolled in it (he would have had to turn 2 by Dec. 1st). Any input would be greatly appreciated!
