I have a 17months old son. I was happy to find your site and all the information you provide on it. I was however surprised not to find one playgroup heading. So I thought I ask you if there is a playgroup for Iranian kids(or really kids of Iranian parents) in the Berkeley-Oakland areas. I would greatly appreciate your replay. Thanks.

I have a 6 year old daughter and a 3 year old son. We live in Belmont, San Mateo County. I would love a play group, too. Best regards,

Do you know anybody in Orinda or Lafayette who has 7-8 years old boy so we can get together and have a playmate for my son?

If there are any interested families in our area (New Jersey, very close to New York City), I would love to hear about playgroups for our 8-year old son.

To the madar-pedar parents:

I am interested in forming a play group in my area. I have a 9 1/2 month old son. We live in the Pleasanton-Dublin-San Ramon-Livermore-Tracy (Tri-Valley) area. I am an American Madar and my husband is origianlly from Iran. He does not speak enough Farsi around the baby. I would like to get together with other moms who have children close to my son's age so that he may be exposed more to his Persian roots and possibly pick up on Farsi. His grandparents are living in Iran. They do not speak any English. I would like for him to eventually be able to speak to them in Farsi.

If you would be interested in getting together, my e-mail address is as follows:

My kids are 3 and 17 months old and we live in the South East ( Brighton) area. If you know of anyone in this area, I would love to network with them directly.

Thank you,
