TAPS Baby Groups
Now that baby does a little more than eat and sleep, you might find yourself settling into a rhythm. But you might be wondering what to do on a day to day basis, or how to make connections for both you and baby.
At TAPS, we understand that each child and each family is different and that there are lots of "right ways" to parent your children. That's why we offer a 10 week facilitated group; a nonjudgmental and supportive space, so that you don't have to go through this stage of life alone. Sharing life experiences through our groups offers a kind of connection that nothing else can. It's magical. Its empowering. It's an opportunity that Triangle Area Parenting Support brings to the Triangle Metro Area.
We currently offer two types of TAPS Baby groups - groups for moms and groups for couples. In both types of groups, parents attend with their baby aged 4 - 12 months. Baby groups are hosted at one of our hosting sites around the Triangle. Groups meet weekly for about 90 minutes.
We follow the model of peer to peer support used by the Program for Early Parent Support (PEPS). During each meeting you will share your highs and lows for the week, play games, sing songs, and discuss a relevant parenting topic. Groups are coordinated geographically to ensure that group members live as close to each other as possible!
We recommend registering early so that we can place you in a group as soon as possible. We create groups as we have demand for them. If you would like to be placed into a group with a friend or in a group you saw advertised online, please let us know and we will try our best to accommodate you!
