Parents who  work all day are frustrated!  Many are unable to find the support groups and events in the evening hours for themselves and their children.  When this question was asked on the Great Lakes Bay Moms Facebook page a number of followers shared this frustration and stressed the need for more programs, including parent and child exercise classes.  Here is what our community of parents suggested for the following
