Organize Playdates

"I organize a game day -- cookie-baking, tie-dyeing, or another activity -- and ask my children to invite friends over. This also gives me an opportunity to meet their parents." -Marisel Hernandez, New Jersey

"Throwing a big party for my daughter. Because her birthday happens to fall at the very beginning of the school year, I throw a party and invite all of her classmates. They get to know my daughter in our home setting, and I get to know the moms." -L. Anne Becker, Connecticut
