Parenting can feel like a lonely battle some days. Finding friends along the way makes things just a little bit easier.

The Early Childhood Family Resource Centre of Westmorland-Albert hosts several different groups and programs that can help you connect with other parents.

Parents who are expecting or have twins, triplets, or higher order multiples can join Moncton Multiples for free.

If you are the parent of a preemie, there is also a free, local support group called Moncton Preemie Power.

Local playgroups and programs are also a great way to meet other parents.

It’s not always easy to make parenting friends. Mom-of-three and local writer, Jenna Morton, has shared some of her struggles with fitting in and some tips for finding friends on her site, Pickle Planet Moncton.
