Tips to help your group really take off!

By Lisa Simmons

Parent support groups are a terrific way for parents facing similar, challenging situations in life to offer each other encouragement, share ideas, and generally reduce the stress of a trying time.  Unfortunately, parent support groups are often started and lead by Moms who may have little experience organizing and managing a group.  This can lead to poor outcomes for individual group members and great frustration for the group leader. 

If you are struggling to get your parent support group up and running, here are some tips to help your group really take off!

I hope that some of these ideas will help get your group growing into the active and productive one you envisioned!
