    I would love to know if there are any storytimes/playgroups/family centers in Hampshire county that meet on weekends. Most seem centered around stay at home parents.

    Are there other parents of adopted children who would want to meet up and support one another? I’m especially looking to find parents with children with one or more biological parent who is or are incarcerated.

    I’m curious if there are co-ed singing and drama groups around for kids aged 10-15? There are lots for girls only but my son enjoys music and wants to be more involved in it.

    I’d like to hear some ways that other families keep their preteen kids physically active in the coming winter months. My children enjoy snow play for very short durations and I, not at all. Maybe you have some unique indoor venues or new ways to enjoy the colder weather ahead.

    Is there a great orchard for apple picking in the Hilltowns? Preferably no/low spray. Do you have favorite spots to bring the kids to pick other fruits? We like Robert’s Blueberries on South St in Chesterfield.

    I’m wondering two things: are there any super-fun spots for special needs kids (of all types), and are there any great RESPITE services for parents of special needs kids (bonus points for mental-health-savvy!) nearby?

    How do you encourage 1st time listening? What are ways you’ve found to get clear communication between your children and yourself? How do you handle resistance to decisions made by parents that aren’t flexible?

    Hello!
    My question is: how did you and your partner/husband/wife decide you were ready for a second child? How does one/a couple best assess readiness to expand the family?

    Thanks!! Lenox MA
