This group is primarily for parents who have full/sole custody (shared custody are welcome too) of their child(ren) who are looking to meet like minded single parents for friendship, play dates, outdoor activities, day trips and weekend trips with a group of folks who understand full time parenting can be challenging. Most of our activities are located in the Northern Virginia area and the majority of kids are between the ages of 3 to 12. For those parents with only one child like myself, this gives your child an opportunity to meet other families with similar circumstances to help build happy lives. My intent is to introduce parents and children to form bonding and lasting friendships and provide comfort for the children knowing that one parent is just as good or even better than two. Our circumstance is not unusual but can be difficult at times to juggle the many daily tasks and activities while trying to lead a social life. This group will provide support, laughter, friendship and overall sanity to help you understand you are not alone and being a sole parent doesn't mean you can't enjoy a fun filled day with like parents with your kids around.
A few requirements for the group: You must identify yourself in your profile picture (it is hidden to the public), pay memebershiup dues, live in the washington metropolitan area and participate in one of the events within two months of joining the group. We look forward to having you a part of the SPWSC family! Please note this group is not a dating site - we are here to build lasting friendships and most of the parents and kids are actively involved.
