About the event
Our brand of ‘Group’ focuses on making connections, on forging a network of support and camaraderie between mothers as well as giving our children the opportunity to form new friendships.
What differentiates our group is the frequency and variety of moms support and children’s activities
Most of these activities (such as the monthly play groups and field trips) are more child-focused and / or educational in nature while others like our monthly Mom’s Night Out and Book Club are mom-focused, providing the opportunity to connect with each other on an evening when the children can be left with dad or a baby sitter
Our EAKG members come from a range of backgrounds, interests and professions but the one thing we all have in common is the understanding that being a mother is the toughest job there is. In addition to providing moral support to one another, our member mothers extend a helping hand to one another by providing Sunshine Meals for moms in need.
Culture is a strong part of people's lives. It influences their views, their values, their humor, their hopes, their loyalties, and their worries and fears. If you are from Mexico if your parents are Cambodian, French Canadian, or Native American, if you are German Catholic or African-American, if you are Jewish or Mormon, if you are a mixture of cultures your culture has affected you. So when you are working with people and building relationships with them, it helps to have some perspective and understanding of their cultures.
But as we explore culture, it's also important to remember how much we have in common. A person who grew up in Ethiopia , will probably see the world very differently than someone who grew up in USA--but both people know what it is like to wake up in the morning and look forward to the adventures that of the day. We are all human beings. We all love deeply, want to learn, have hopes and dreams, and have experienced pain and fear.
It is important to remember that everyone has an important viewpoint and role to play when it comes to culture. You don't have to be an expert to build relationships with people different from yourself; you don't have to have a degree to learn to become sensitive to cultural issues; and you don't have to be a social worker to know how culture has affected your life.
