Sacramento Single Dads
It occurred to me that this group needs to be clearly defined if it is ever going to appeal to anyone.|
As stated on the info page, this is a real life (as opposed to online) playgroup / support group. That means the members will meet each other on a regular basis.
Who can join? You must be male, you must be in your teens or early 20s, you must be single, and you must have at least one child and be raising that child on your own. In other words, this group is for young custodial single dads. You must also live in the city of Sacramento. The point is to hang out with other dads, so obviously you must live close enough to do that.
Who's part of it already? We have
two four seven members.
What do we do?
Since there's just two of us and we've been friends a while already, there are no activities as such. I think we will just keep it very informal even when we get more members. Set dates and hang out, that type of thing. The idea is no longer being isolated (as many single parents can be) and having someone to go out and do things with. Also, we think it's good for the kids to socialize a bit.
More info. I realize you may be a little worried about meeting people offline. If you decide to join, the plan is to meet at a mutually convenient location, such as a college campus or the mall.
Questions? If you have any questions, either leave a comment here or over on Reese's journal, reesebradshaw.
