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).

Looking for a Baby Group? Park Slope Parents now has monthly and seasonal groups/forums that meet in person. We also have other groups for stay-at-home parents, bilingual families, dads, folks in a wide range of careers and industries, and MUCH MORE.

Are you a Brooklyn parent who's not yet a PSP member? Click HERE to join.

Members go to the PSP Membership Website, log in, and click "Forums" for a complete list.

Want to start a group like Park Slope Parents? Here is advice from Founder Susan Fox. We are currenly using Groups.io for our Advice and Classifieds group and ClubExpress.com for our membership processing, events and smaller specialty groups (there are over 100). 

You can also search Google, Yahoo! Groups, MeetUp.com, Google Groups, Groups.IO or Facebook for other groups we may have missed. Search <city> "mother," "mamas," "moms," "parents" and "dads."  Check not only number of members but number of recent messages posted to see if the group is active. There are many many "ghost town" groups which were once vibrant.

(If you know of other groups who are not listed, please contact us.)
