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

Do you feel like parenting is an endless series of quick decisions without much time for reflection? Do you wonder how to help your children navigate their way to adulthood? In this workshop, you will develop your parenting intentions. You will learn how to use these intentions to develop rules, routines, and habits that are right for your family. Parents leave this workshops with tangible strategies and a renewed sense of their own ability to do this very difficult job of parenting.
