Social Connections

  • Parenting is hard.  There are times when all of us need help, advice, support, or just someone to listen.  Build a social network of emotionally supportive friends, family, and neighbors.  You may find that having them there makes it easier to care for your children and yourself.
  • If you don’t already have a support network, try looking for opportunities to meet new people though faith-based organizations, schools, hospitals, community centers, and other places in your local community where social groups meet.  Be confident in yourself!
