When families join a parent group, they can meet other families with similar needs. Parent groups can serve many purposes, but one of their most important can be to introduce families to others like themselves. While it’s true that many online parent groups never actually meet in person, the interactions online can provide much needed information and emotional support.
Often, though, through our events & local community leadership, we organise local mzazi ntwrk events, so that families can meet in person & establish one on one relationships.
In person or online, when families with similar concerns meet, there is a sense of community, of understanding. You create a place where you can laugh about the same things, where you can discuss the same problems, where you can help each other. Where else can a parent find out which local dentists are good with children who don’t sit still, where to buy specialized clothes, toys, or equipment, how to help a teenager find a side hustle or after-school job, or how to fill out job applications & even learn about them in the first place?
This platform allows you identify & join parent groups that exist nationally and in your county and in your community. It will also help you decide which group or groups would be useful to you in meeting your family’s needs and concerns.
We pride ourselves in being a comprehensive family strengthening platform based on the principles of mutual support, parent leadership, shared leadership and personal growth and change including monthly Adult Groups and Children and Youth Groups.
