When finding friends for your little one to have playdates with, be open to personalities but conscious of how the children are parented.
This is the one time in your life where even typically very confident women can feel like they are doing it all wrong and that life is just a series of spit up, nap schedules and monotony with no reprieve. And when the going gets tough there is no one else on earth that will understand more than another mom who is in the trenches right there with you.Setting up dates for your children to have some fun can surely benefit both child and parent, I put together some tips to consider when seeking the perfect playdate. While a familiar face is good, having your child play with kids they don’t see as often can be beneficial. You can use that to motivate your little one to clean up before friends come over. One is what I call a “walk it off mom.” She doesn’t let things get to her and takes a liberal approach to decisions and discipline.My other friend is much stricter and sticks to a consistent plan when parenting. Every child is different and we all have different parenting styles on how to feed, discipline and teach our children.Every outing you make, whether it be the park, the doctor’s office or the grocery store is an opportunity to meet other moms with kids.Often I spark up conversation with other moms behind them in line at Superstore.
