We all know how important it is for parents to stay connected online (now more than ever!). Working from home, social distancing and homeschooling can be isolating and overwhelming, so we’ve found a bunch of Facebook groups you can join to reach out and connect with other parents in the Dallas community. Read on to find that support, shared knowledge and camaraderie are just a few clicks away in a local online group for parents in the DFW.
