About the Parenting Topic

Parenting communities are online hangouts where you can discuss tips, lessons, and stories about raising children. If you're expecting, have a newborn, a toddler, or an angsty teen, get support from other guardians that have been there before.

About Online Communities on Independent Platforms

These are online communities that are hosted on their own platform, and not a part of a social network like Reddit/Facebook/LinkedIn, or communication platform like Slack and Discord. Although they may utilize community software like circle.so to implement the features of their community, they have their own brand and identity.
