Join Our
Virtual Parenting Club for Widows

Parenting as a widow can be daunting. You are navigating a new way of life, raising grieving children, and doing it all as a solo parent. It can feel lonely, but you are not alone. Your Parenting Club Wisters (widow + sisters) are here to walk alongside you. No one “gets it” like another widowed parent.

Our Parenting Club is for parents of children of all ages. It’s an important place to learn from one another and grow together into capable, confident parents for every stage of your children’s lives. The collective wisdom and mutual support of strong widows make this club truly extraordinary.

Because we know that parenting in widowhood places many unpredictable demands on your time, our Parenting Club does not regularly schedule Zoom meetings. Instead, you’ll join our private online Facebook community where our “conversations” take place.

Our online community is a safe space for asking questions, sharing ideas, leaning on each other through tough phases, and celebrating successes both large and small.

How Will This Work?


You’ll receive an email to confirm your signup along with instructions for accessing our private online Facebook group.


You’ll receive periodic emails with information about widowed parenting topics, notice of any Zoom meetings or other events that may be scheduled, and details about other Parenting Club activities.

All of our clubs are facilitated by top-tier trained Modern Widows Club advocates. They’re compassionate, experienced, non-judgmental, encouraging, understanding individuals who are widowed themselves. They are here to support you every step of the way.

Join us today and connect with your fellow parenting Wisters.

Michelle W.

I am a lifelong California resident, raised in Southern California but living in the greater Bay Area since I graduated from UC Berkeley in 1987. My roommate introduced me to her cousin Mike, and I quickly knew that tall, fun-loving Irish fellow was the right man for me! We married in 1996, had two beautiful daughters, and built a very happy family together. Just before our 11th anniversary, a reckless driver took him from us on New Year’s Eve 2005. I was 40, our daughters were 7 and 9, and we were utterly devastated. With much help from my family, we were able to navigate our way through the ensuing challenges. Along the way, my path crossed with a number of young widows who provided a totally unique friendship and encouragement that can only come from someone who “gets it” as a widow. Once our children were raised, I knew I wanted to find a way to foster connections for other families. Upon discovering Modern Widows Club, I knew I had found the place to help build a network of support for widows, particularly those who face the added challenges of navigating their loss while supporting their grieving children.

It was encouraging to see another young widow successfully navigate widowhood.
