No matter what age and stage your kids are in, it’s important for Moms to have some friends. People you can talk to, share stories, advice, or even hang out with. Living in a large city with people so busy can make it hard for you to build relationships with other Moms. Here are some helpful hints on how to make friends with other Moms.
Join Plano Moms Talk: If you haven’t already, then you need to join us in our Facebook group, Plano Moms Talk. This group has over 4700 Moms just like you. The group is growing every week! There are lots of newcomers to the city and even some that were born here. Comment and share advice as it comes up in the threads. You will find Moms in your area quickly and maybe even some of your neighbors! It seems like every day, Moms comment that they are about to move to Plano. Think of it as new friends waiting to meet you.
Come to a Mom’s Night Out Event: Plano Moms is constantly hosting get-togethers from book clubs meet ups to play dates with kids. Make an effort to attend one. It can be scary to go somewhere when you don’t know anyone but trying is half the battle. Check out our events page and calendar to see what we have planned for the week! As you meet new Moms, make sure you get their contact information!
Host a park playdate: Kids love to play at the park! Invite a few Moms from the group to meet you and your kids at a local park in Plano for some playtime. Your kids will have fun and you can make some connections with new Moms. Plan to meet up again at a house or a different park the next week. Set a date and stick with it!
These are some great ideas to get you started on making new friends. Half the battle will be putting yourself out there. Don’t wait for someone to come to you. You need to make an effort. Friendship is important, especially when you’re a Mom.
