We had our children in play groups in the early 80's. Living in a rural community and in the country the nearest neighbor was not "just over the fence." We had weekly gatherings at one of the 8 parents' houses.(This group was not closed, it just so happened we were a group of 8 couples who all had our babies within 3-4 months of each other) Each parent in turn made lunch and we moms (and dads-my hubby was a stay at home dad while I was at work)got to visit, play and brainstorm over issues with our first and some second borns. It was most helpful and a wonderful experience for our kids-many of which are still friends! They can say now they have been acquainted with some of their friends "since they were 6 months old."
