 Our family just moved to Kettering. I Would LOVE to meet some like minded families in the area. I need advice on Dr.'s and schools - you name it! We're delighted to be in a community that seems like it has a lot to offer. Still, I'm a bit surprised by the resistance to bfeeding I've already encountered, - it puts a sense of urgency under my belt to connect with mothers that believe in instinctual parenting - and might help me navigate a community that is more"main stream" (whatever that means exactly :)

Hello, and welcome :-)


I grew up in Kettering. I don't live there anymore, but am only about 30 minutes away and still have family in Kettering.


It is actually pretty surprising to me how "non-crunchy" the area is :-( You might want to try out some La Leche League meetings. There is a great active group in East Dayton which is probably pretty close to you, and I understand there is a pretty good group in Centerville as well. 


How many LOs do you have, and how old are they? Don't know what kind of schooling you are interested in, but I can tell you at least a little bit about Kettering schools, the local private schools, available e-school options, and homeschooling requirements in the state.


We have a great ped in Xenia, which is a little bit of a drive from Kettering, but totally worth it for the great care provided. Her name is Nancy Hesz at Star Pediatrics. 


Feel free eto PM me if you have any more specific questions I can help you with :-)
