April 4 Social Group meeting promises new friends for young women as well as their parents

The Girls’ Social Group is meeting at 6:30 PM on Tuesday, April 4. This group for girls with social challenges, ages 12 and up, meets at 1981 Eden Road, just south of Mason, Michigan. Any young woman is welcome, but we especially want to invite girls who, for whatever reason, have a hard time making friends at school or in other locations.

Our last meeting included 4 girls, ages 24, 20, 18, and 12. We have had some interest from families with younger girls. Please come on over if you have a younger daughter…we’ll make a special place for younger girls to get to know each other.

This month, we’ll be working with sculpey clay and have coloring materials handy, but your daughter can bring anything she’d like to work on while the group talks together. As always, we’ll start with introductions and a short social skills activity.

Our goal is to give every young woman a reason to say, “I am going to see my friends tonight!” We meet at Anna Schuck’s house, and parents can stay to talk with each other at the Schuck family home, across the street from Anna’s house. Parents find this to be a place where they meet other parents with similar concerns. It’s a group that helps parents make new friends, too! Call Lydia Schuck, the group facilitator, 517-676-4621, if you need more information.
