Be honestYour child may love toddler group and that's hardly surprising. After all, it's exclusively designed for their age - not yours. While they are having the time of their life, you're drinking tea, eating too many biscuits and thinking of all the things you've got to do when you get home.
Guess what? Many mums sitting with you are thinking exactly the same but are too afraid to say so. We bet if you admit to hating The Wheels on the Bus (especially when you have to do the actions too) they'll all laugh in agreement. If you're honest, there's a good chance they'll be honest too, and you'll all feel much better for it.
Be organisedNow you've found a few like-minded mums why not pool your resources. Take turns having playmates round on a regular basis. It's good for your child to learn to socialise and share in their own home and it means you will get a free morning or afternoon in return.
Top tip: When playing at home find an activity you enjoy too. Whether it's dancing around the living room or colouring in with felt pens, it doesn't matter. If you're having fun, your child will too.
