About Park Slope Parents
Park Slope Parents (PSP) is a community of 7000+ families in Brooklyn, NY. Celebrating its 18th anniversary in 2020, its members have shared advice on everything from choosing childcare to camps, hairdressers to healthcare, and coping with teething, terrible twos, and tweens.
- Monthly pregnancy, baby, and toddler groups so parents can share insight and issues about raising same-age kids.
- Specialty groups focused on raising bilingual kids, single parenting, dads, hobbies (knitting, cooking, gardening), SAHPs, tweens/teens, LGBTQ+, Kindergarten, Pre-K, and much more.
- Online support for parents dealing with illness, divorce, and aging parents.
- 20+ career sub-groups (e.g., law, tech, art, marketing, working moms) where members network, meet, mingle, and advance their careers.
Park Slope Parents provides:
- A public website with community resources, local business reviews, and 1000s of parenting tips.
- The PSP Guide to Hiring and Firing a Nanny, including sample work agreements, interview checklists, nanny share info, and compensation guidelines.
- Traveling advice based on parents’ direct experiences, including best practices for flights, motion sickness, passports, and jet lag.
- Tips for going back to work, including negotiating maternity leave, pumping at work, managing the work/life juggle, and more.
