Parenting Chat Rooms And Forums Have Litterally Exploded Over a Decade
Have you checked out myspace recently? Even MySpace has parenting groups you can join. Or check out the forum we just recently added here at More4kids. Twenty years ago, if you told an expectant mother that there would soon be a way for her to connect with other expectant mothers across the globe who were expecting at the same time of the year – and that she would never need to pick up the phone to contact them – do you think she would have believed you? Honestly, the answer to that question is a definite no. In the past decade, the popularity of parenting chat and email rooms has literally exploded across the globe.
One common type of parenting chat room is the “birthday group”, which does not constitute of people who like to eat cake! The birthday group is generally established when moms are newly pregnant with their expected children. They will sign up through a website and then, the mothers get in touch with one another to discuss their lives, pregnancies, older children, etc. These parenting chat and email rooms provide such an amazing outlet for expectant parents, particularly when it is their first time.
It is not uncommon to learn that a parent of a pre-teen is a member of such a group. There are people who have belonged to the same parenting chat room for over a decade. It is no small feat to stay in touch with one another on a daily basis over ten years. There is no question that the relationships formed in that particular parenting chat room will be lifelong friendships, build on a lifetime of experience.
Parents of Special Needs Children
Parents who have children with special needs will often turn to the internet for information regarding their child’s particular disability or delay. One of the most welcome resources that a parent can find online is a high quality parenting chat room that is geared specifically to parents who can share their unique situation. Dealing with the lifestyle changes required in order to care for a special needs child is often stressful and tiring.
Parenting chat rooms give parents a place to express concern, share triumphs and cry their heart out when they need a supportive shoulder to cry on. The shoulder may be virtual, but sometimes that just makes it easier to share true feelings.
Regardless of a parent’s situation, there is most likely a parenting chat room, forum, or group to fit their lifestyle. You can hook up with other parents everywhere from MySpace to More4kids. There are probably thousands of these groups across the globe, making connecting with other parents more accessible than ever.
