New online community provides help for parents seeking advice regarding their child’s common behavioral issues.
Online PR News – 18-December-2012 – Chicago, IL – Chicago, Illinois – As parents we often feel like we have nowhere to turn for advice on raising the kids. With our busy schedules, it is becoming increasingly impractical to pick up a phone and call other parents for advice. When day to day issues arise, we are sometimes at a loss as to how to deal with them. Power4parents.com was created as a free platform to provide help for parents. Our website provides a place for parents to ask questions and offer advice. The website also invites professionals such as social workers and teachers to contribute their expertise.
Marc Abrams had the idea for Power4Parents when his 12 year old told him that his friends had no rules regarding video game playing time. “He thought he could play as long as he wanted to. I was in need of a place where I could go to ask other parents what kinds of rules they set regarding video games.” Marc quickly realized that there were many issues that could be addressed in an online community setting. Some of the current discussions include toddler whining and food issues, bullying, teenage driving, homework and good grades. Power4parents offers tips for parents concerning common issues that arise from time to time.
Age categories range from infants through the college years. Parents can create new forum topics relevant to their specific situations. From there other people can respond to the conversations by offering their knowledge. Marc states “The best part is that the advice often comes from the experience of other parents who have previously worked through the issues being discussed.”
As it turns out Marc received a fantastic response to his video game dilemma from another parent on Power4Parents. “A fellow member replied to my post with a great suggestion. We will be implementing the advice this upcoming weekend.”
