okay, so i spoke to a woman tonight that has a space for a peer-to-peer young/teen parenting support group that i want to start. it is a women's center that offers a multitude of services for girls and women, is run by pro-choice women, but has nothing for teen parents. there is one parenting class, but it is cps-mandated, and i think they have la leche league and attachment parenting international meeting there once or twice a month.
so. i'm shooting to start meeting the beginning of june, so that i'll be done with school to kick this off. i have another good friend who was a teen mama, and now has 3 kids that i'm trying to get to co-facilitate with me.
i'm thinking nothing fancy to start with, ideally there will be on-site childcare, or it will be a kid-friendly meeting, and to start maybe we'll just sit around and talk? i don't want it to be too structured but having a list of topics to address would be good.
if you were going to attend a meeting like this, what would you want to hear/talk about?
