Our girls’ group has become a fairly steady little group, but it is mostly girls who are out of high school. Sometimes we meet someone with a younger daughter or friend, and maybe they don’t want to bring a 12 year old to our group with older young ladies.
In February, we’ll start a monthly group for girls ages 12 to 17. Of course this is flexible, since girls develop at different rates. Generally, older girls are talking about living, learning, and playing in settings away from family. Younger girls are still very much thinking of themselves within family and school building contexts.
Older girls will enjoy goal-setting for adult life, while younger girls would rather talk about getting through high school. Which girl is your daughter, granddaughter, or friend? Watch this space for announcements of meetings in 2018.

I grew up outside of Chicago, with great transportation, lots of interesting people in my school, and a beautiful lake about a mile from my house. Here in Lansing we have good transportation, lots of interesting people in the schools, workplaces, cafes, and colleges, and the same big lake, well it’s a couple of hours from here…but we have lots of little lakes around!
If you are a young adult with disabilities or a parent, you might be looking for things to do in Lansing. Here are few I found recently.
517 Living (Lansing Area Living) is a calendar that connects Lansing Area adventurers with unique, life-enhancing events and activities hosted by local businesses and organizations. You can post your events there, and sign up to get a weekly list of what’s happening. We’ve even advertised the Girls’ Social Group there a couple of times.
Abrams Planetarim Sensory Friendly Shows on the third Sunday of every month at 10 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. These shows will run with the lights up, the sound down, and the theater doors open so people can move about as needed.Their ordinary shows are pretty cool, too.
The Library of Things service at the Capital Area District Library supports lifelong learning and creativity. Adult cardholders can borrow these practical, hands-on items to learn new skills, explore areas of interest, or help with everyday tasks. The loan period is either one week or two weeks, depending on the Thing. All Things have an option to renew for an additional week, if no one else is on hold. You’ve got to browse at the link above…you will be surprised at the things you can borrow from the library. Theremini or Bocce Ball, anyone?
