Are you a single divorced, widowed or adoptee parent? Having a hard time finding that balance between parenting and social life? Feeling like a fifth wheel between your married and single/never married friends? Looking for new activities to do with your kids as well as new friends who share your experiences and conundrums as a single parent?
If so, we’d love to invite you over to our group, the West Side Single Moms and Dads! The WSSMD is a friendly, diverse, active and fun group of single parent individuals and their kids on the West Side of Cleveland (we even have some east side members and some that come from as far away as Sandusky!), who have come together to share in our experiences and build long lasting friendships, as well as enrich the lives of our kids! All are welcome: single divorced, adoptee, widowed, never-married, custodial or non-custodial: single parents are single parents, and we all share a common bond!
As we all know, being a single parent can be a tough order of business. Getting back out there during or after a divorce or other life-changing event to make new friends and find fun, new and safe places for your kids to interact with other kids can be hard to do with a busy schedule. So, if you’re looking for a group who "gets" where you’ve been and what you’re going through, and that holds fun, diverse kid-friendly events, drop on by and check us out!
Many of our single parent members have uploaded photos from our past events to give you an idea of some of the places we've been, so check 'em out! We hold a variety of events, from Metroparks outings and playground events, to Cedar Point and mini-road trips to interesting local places! We also try to design events that as many age groups as possible can enjoy (the group has ages ranging from toddlers all the way up to teenagers!) No dues or pressure, just fun with your kids, as well as other single parents in your situation! All that being said, we're looking forward to meeting you and your kids soon! Come on over and see what we're all about!"Single parent" doesn't have to mean on your own!!!
