Chicago Dads Group Message Board › Successful First Park Play-Date
Many thanks to those of you that made it to our first park play-date! I hope you and your kids had as much fun meeting one another as Sophie and I did. For those of you who were unable to attend, hopefully we will meet at an upcoming event soon.
I’m looking to arrange another get together in a few weeks. Watch this space for details.
Chicago Dads Group is a diverse community of fathers who take an active role in our children’s lives. We seek to create an online meetup group to bring fathers together in person. We'll meet several times per week, with our kids, at parks, playgrounds, museums, nature centers, and parent-and-me classes across the Chicago-land area, both city and suburbs. We'll also organize parenting workshops and dads-nights-out to give our members an opportunity to socialize, learn, and support each other as we navigate parenthood. There are not enough resources, social groups, or services for dads. This is a destination for active dads! A diverse group with dads of all stripes: Stay At Home Dads, Dads with flexible schedules, work from home dads, freelance dads, working dads, and involved fathers in and around the Chicago-land area to socialize and interact with other guys who enjoy spending quality time with their children.
Please note: this group is strictly for Dads, we understand sometimes wives will join for their significant others but we encourage them to join on their own accord. We want this group to be a comfortable place for Dads to learn and talk about anything dad related.
