PSP started a new specialty group called “PSP Marching On” that is dedicated to continuing the energy and activism which came out of the Women's March of 2017. We'll work with existing organizations to keep the fight going. Sign up through your membership settings in Club Express and find the group here.
Planned Parenthood Rally
On February 11, a group called ProtestPP is planning a national day of protest at Planned Parenthood locations across the nation. We will need to rally to protect Planned Parenthood. More information coming soon.

Here are the key findings from the annual Park Slope Parents Holiday Tips Survey:
- The more the merrier - or poorer? Having a full-time nanny, dog walker, parking attendant and living in a doorman building with a super will cost you roughly $1500 extra if you tip the average amount as holiday gifts this holiday season.
- You can’t go wrong with a personal touch. One in three (35%) are giving something more than cash (homemade cookies, treats, wine) to their service providers.
- Power in numbers. Three out of four parents with kids in K-12 students contribute an average of $20 towards the class gift in lieu of gifting individually.
- For daycare/preschool, you can’t go wrong with $50 for the head teacher and $25 for the secondary teacher(s). Six in ten (58%) families with kids in daycare/preschool give monetary gifts individually over a class gift.
- For nannies, the standard holiday bonus is a week’s pay.
Caveat: If your nanny hasn’t been working a year then you can give less (e.g., ½ week’s pay if they worked only 3 months) but do let the nanny know if you plan on giving more next year.
