I am a happy mother to four gorgeous boys and a contented wife to a hardworking structural engineer. We live in a small house within a small village and aim to live our lives the happiest. One fine morning, while the kids are at school and the husband works for a living, this mom chanced upon ParentTown.
ParentTown is an online community for parents to meet other parents and experts (education , lactation, and doctors among others) and learn from each other on issues concerning marriage and relations, babies, toddlers, education, food and nutrition and even health, pregnancy and domestic help. Simply put, it is a go-to-place for parents to either ask questions or get / share advice on their journey as moms and dads. This application connects a member to all other members to help raise a child because cliche as it may, but truly, it takes a town to raise a child.
I believe you know the feeling when someone tells you she’s been to a place and instantly she felt at home. It is the exact feeling I have for ParentTown. It is so easy to navigate and within minutes, I find myself participating in questions, reading pieces of advice from lactation experts and other moms, and even follow topics I find so dear to me.
Let me share with you one thread I follow:
How ParentTown works? You simply need to sign up, edit your profile and even add some photos and share them with others. To participate on topics, tick categories you would want to follow and everyday you log in, these topics will be in your home feed. If one subject matter interests you, you could like, share or even comment. If you like to check on other topics, you just need to “find a topic.”
I am a mother to four boys but that does not make me an expert mom. I still need co-mommies’ advice on things I am most uncertain of and listen to experts’ opinion. And as it takes a town to raise a child, I am pretty confident that with ParentTown, I have someone’s back to rely on.
Let me say goodbye for now as I find one topic I would want to engage in — How do you start potty training and is a small potty needed?
Let us see each other at ParentTown!
