  • Join a playgroup or online support group of parents with children at similar ages
  • Find a church, temple or mosque that welcome and supports parents
  • Connect regularly with family, friends and neighbors who respect and appreciate you
  • Seek out family-friendly community events
  • Make time to "give-back" to others
  • Use social media connections wisely
  • Visit libraries with your child for story times and other programs
  • Attend events hosted by your child care program
  • Seek out a role model
  • Ask your pediatrician to connect you with community support groups
