Happy holidays! We have been working hard the last month or two! We have been working with experts to focus on making sure everything behind-the-scenes is easy to use for our site visitors!

  • For the holiday season, we’ve been focusing on ways parents can alleviate stress in their lives – how to identify their own values surrounding holiday activities, how to say no to additional obligations, and ways to simplify the traditions and festivities they DO want to hold on to. We’d love to feature your tips and suggestions!
  • We all know that after the excitement of the holidays are over, it can be all-too-easy to fall into the winter doldrums. Post-holiday can be especially hard for parents, who may find it more difficult to get out of the house due to weather conditions, seasonal depression or seasonal illnesses. In light of that, we would love to share your suggestions to our families – articles you have written related to the winter season, your recommendations for some books, courses, and products that our audience can utilize, etc.  
  • Based on user feedback, you can now edit your profile without the need for re-approval. You can confidently share your listing with friends and on social media without worrying about needing to make a quick edit or adjust your profile image! We are continuing to work on other site improvements based on user feedback, including an enhanced homepage, coming soon!

Even as a licensed clinical social worker, I had trouble finding the resources I needed as a new parent.  I resolved to build a website where parents could find all mental health, coaching, consulting, personal development and wellness resources in one centralized location.
