Other Online Parenting Groups

This is a list of the various neighborhood & other parent email groups around the country who have active groups (with numerous messages a month).

HOWEVER--Looking for a Baby Group?  Park Slope Parents now has monthly and seasonal groups/forums that meet in person. We also have other groups such as Stay at Home Mom Groups, Bi-Lingual Groups, Dads' Group, Career Specialty Groups and MANY MORE.

You must be a Park Slope Parents' member to join these. NOT A MEMBER? CLICK HERE.

 If you are a member, go to the PSP Membership Website, log in, and click "Forums" for a complete list.

Or Join Us here!

Want to start a small Mommy/Parent group? Park Slope Parents has a "How To" here.

Want to start a group like Park Slope Parents? Here is advice from Founder Susan Fox.

You can also search Yahoo! Groups, MeetUp.com, Google Groups or Big Tent for other groups we may have missed.
