The Chelmsford Mothers' Club hosts monthly general meeting open to all members. Monthly meetings are geared towards promoting personal growth as mothers, providing strategies for effective parenting, and managing the stresses and challenges our members and their families face daily. Meetings over the past year have included educational parenting topics such as children’s sleep, managing childhood anxiety and anger, encouraging reluctant eaters, social emotional learning, and normative speech and language development. The CMC also host a variety of speakers and panels covering topics for parents including creative outlets for managing stress, estate planning, and how to re-enter the workforce after raising children.
Occasionally, meetings are activity-based, such as a member skill-share, crafting, or favorite things swap. We also host two catered celebrations each year: one to celebrate our members who have added to their family over the past year, and our annual meeting which reviews the past year, looks ahead to the coming year, and recognizes our invaluable volunteers.
Each meeting runs for approximately two to two and a half hours, allowing time for members to socialize with one another and enjoy light refreshments before the presentation. Monthly meetings often draw a great variety of club members, making it a wonderful way for new and old members to meet, exchange ideas, and network.
Topics and events for the upcoming year include:
- Life by Design
- New Mom & Baby Celebration
- Favorite Things & Cookie Swap
- Kids & Animals
- Emergency Preparedness
- Intentional Parenting

Our Next General Meeting
Effective Communication with Young Children factoring Social/Emotional Needs
September 18, 2019
6:30 PM - 9:00 PM
Roudenbush Community Center, 65 Main St, Westford, MA
This presentation will focus on strategies to help parents effectively communicate with young children. We will start by looking at the social emotional needs of our children (and ourselves), and explore the ways that effective communication skills can help address those needs. From there, we will discuss the main forms of communication and explore how to apply each one in our home and families."
