Community Building Tip: Talk to Other Parents
In today's fragmented world, people can improve it by reaching out to each other. Here are some ideas for building community in your neighborhood.

Talk to other parents at the park. The neighborhood park is where I get the best scoop! If you have kids, the neighborhood playground can offer a wealth of info…which schools parents like and why, where the best activities for kids are, which new restaurants are coming to the neighborhood. Exchanging neighborhood info at the park is a time-honored tradition among parents, but so often today everyone is on their smart phone. And I admit, I’ve been that mom. But I’ve also learned to make play dates and gather neighborhood intel.
