For those who don't know, MOPS is an acronym for Mothers of Preschoolers and exists to help people fitting that description. The mothers gather a couple of times a month and give each other moral support, share what they've learned about parenting, and socialize.
Being a mother isn't an easy job and, in our modern times, it has become more difficult because many young women don't have a nearby extended family to give help and advice. Even those who do can benefit from spending time with other moms.
In my opinion MOPS is an organization that is greatly needed and members and former members seem to value it a lot.
MOPS is an international organization so local groups can be found in many communities. For more information please go to http://www.mops.org/
