About Community

Parenting is hard. Developing kind and productive humans is a lot of work! But, it?s also very fun and rewarding. We?re here to offer some real parenting stories and advice with content we?ll feature from some of our parent bloggers as well as sharing news, photos and videos. We are here to help you find ways to navigate the joys (ahem, sometimes pain!) of parenting.

Our goal? To be a resource for you on parenting and families to help you feel you?re not alone. Raising kids is the toughest job around.

We?ll give you ideas on fun learning experiences, provide suggestions on creating positive sibling relationships, give you some tips and tricks from celebrity parents to respected child experts.

Most importantly, we want to be a resource for you as a community of happy, healthy, connected families in a fragmented world. We want to have some fun too!

Please connect with us by joining this community page. We hope you?ll like articles you connect with and will share some of your own too! We love questions and want this to be an opportunity to learn from others.

Welcome to the MyArea Network Family and Parenting Community!
