I, like thousands of other people, adore Facebook! It's such a unique tool to connecting with like minded people!, sharing photos, sounding out ideas, promoting businesses etc.
The original one, which I co-created with my American friend Lil, is based in Munich, Germany. https://www.facebook.com/#!/groups/15091837146/
The second one is based in South East Wales: https://www.facebook.com/#!/groups/172285086149199/
And the third is based in North Bristol, England: https://www.facebook.com/#!/groups/205921372764511/
I'm so proud of how these groups have connected people who otherwise have felt alone. Becoming a parent can be a daunting prospect, and the groups above have passed the hand of friendship (online, in real life, or a bit of both!) to those who merely ask! It's a great way to ask other local parents questions about raising children, chat to local mums, find out (or promote) local family-friendly events, and anything else family related!
Two of my Parents In... Facebook groups also have a selling sub-group where members can sell their surplus items, such as their preloved baby clothes, outgrown toys etc.
Facebook really has brought me closer to a lot of people, some of which I have still never met, but always chat via Facebook!
Thank you xxx
