Talking to Strangers: How parents can make new friendsWednesday, July 17, 2013
White Dad Problems
Teaching your child to make new friends means making new friends yourself. And what adult wants to make new friends? None. Yuck. But now you're forced into close proximity with other parents - what to do? The White Dad Problems team takes a look.
You're stuck next to other parents all the time now - in the bleachers, in lobbies, in classes. Do you talk to them? About what? For how long? It's an endless struggle of awkwardness and boredom. And what if your kid wants a playdate with another kid (or a dog)? Do you ask for another parent's contact info? What if it's a woman? Stuff gets weird in a hurry for the Dads this week.
