Forsyth Family’s Kids Morning Out is Back

Grab a friend and bring the kids for a morning of fun at Salem Gymnastics & Swim for the first Forsyth Family KMO since March 2020!

This is a FREE EVENT hosted by Forsyth Family Magazine. It will take place on Monday, September 13th from 10am – 11:30am. Be sure to RSVP on their Facebook event page here.

See all that Salem Gym & Swim has to offer with a variety of individual activity stations and two warm water pools with amazing instructors! If you’d like to try the pool, bring your swimsuit and towel. Children under 3 must be accompanied with a parent in the pool. Each adult also receives 4 tickets for the fabulous prize board!

Triad Counselors, Psychologists and Therapists for Your Family

Children and families often encounter problems that can best be handled by a professional. To assist local families, we have compiled a list of psychologists and counselors in the area who have been personally recommended by other local moms. They are listed alphabetically by last name, and you can receive more information by clicking their website or contacting them directly. You can visit our directory here.

Please note that TMoM is not held accountable for any interactions between our readers and the businesses in our directories.
