Worried about feeling like a wallflower at the local mother and toddler playgroup? Come to daddy and me playgroup! A playgroup for dads? Yes, that′s right. A playgroup for dads and their child(ren) once a month in various locations right here in Lawrence. So, what kind of men go? This is a group of regular guys, who also happen to be dads either looking after their children or just wanting to spend more time with them. Some are full time stay-at-home dads. Some have part time employment. Some even work full time but with shift patterns that allow them to come to the playgroup with their kids. And, although it′s mostly fathers that come to the playgroups, grandpas, uncles, and other involved guys, even moms are also welcome. Curious? Check out our photos from previous playgroups and some of our days out. Or come to the next group –stay and play as long as your little one is happy! Circle of Parents is a national network of mutual support and self-help programs in partnership with communities.
