Yes, it's true there are a lot of single parents out there! But where are they you ask?? We are here!
Our group holds mainly low cost events in the GTA and Toronto. We get together with our kids to do fun things they enjoy with different activities for all ages. We also hold adult-only events without our kids as well (look out though we still like to talk about them a lot)! Our activities all depend on what our members want to do.
People join this group for a variety of reasons, and many who are here do not want to (or are not yet ready to) date. So we ask that you please keep that in mind when meeting others as there are other meetup groups and websites for that kind of thing.
Apart from simply being a social avenue to meet other single parents, there are a lot of issues we as single parents face. Some issues are common to us all, and some are different for moms than for dads. Meeting up with other single parents gives us all a chance to talk to each other, find a good shoulder to lean on from an ear that totally gets your situation and best of all have a great time. Our kids get a great chance as well to meet some new potential buddies and socialize with with each other.
In the end though, we envision that the types of events we have will come from the wishes of the members, and the group can grow organically in that way. Feel free to suggest events you would like to see. So lets get out and have a lot of fun with our kiddies; the main squeezes in our lives!
