When children leave home, it can be very difficult. People jokingly call it an empty nest, but moms can experience depression, loneliness, and anxiety that they have never experienced before. Adjustments need to be made, not only in the relationship with the adult children but within a mom's spirit going forward.
This group offers a perfect way to bring moms together that have already experienced this transition, are currently experiencing it, or are on the cusp of having their children leave home.
Gather with other moms that you meet at college tours, college message boards, college move-in days, sporting events, PTA meetings, work, church, the grocery store, or moms that you already know! You will exchange ideas and solutions and ultimately make new friends.
This easy to use Mom's Group Start-Up Kit will provide you with unlimited access to everything you need to get a Mom's Group (or groups) started in your community! It is up to you whether you want to charge a fee for attendance and what that fee would be.
When leading a group, you are not expected to be an expert on any subject. You won't come into a group as a teacher or problem solver. Our pre-written discussion questions keep the conversation flowing so that the moms work through things together. Part of the charm of All Mothers United is that each group will come up with different answers to common questions. Our curriculum encourages women to work together to find solutions and answers to common questions and situations for empty nesters and provides them with an opportunity to build trust with other moms, so they can have an open honest conversation.
This Kit includes discussion questions and optional at-home assignments for five (5) different meetings:
- Meeting 1. Getting to Know Each Other
- Meeting 2. The Nest is Empty
- Meeting 3. Starting a New Chapter
- Meeting 4. Taking Good Care
- Meeting 5. Follow-Up
Also included in this kit are invitation and flyer templates that you can personalize, along with instructions and suggestions on how to get a group started (and to make it fun)!
*Please note: All Mothers United has no political or religious affiliation. All of our discussion questions are just about being a mom.
