Brookline Parents Needed for New Moms Council
New advice column debuting next month.
If you have a kid, you know: There is no guidebook to parenting.
From the moment the doctor places your baby in your arms, the questions begin—breastfeeding, cloth diapering, when to establish a sleep schedule, when to introduce solids. Should I go back to work? What's a good age to start potty training? When to start preschool?
And the questions don't stop as your child or children get older. What do you do about school—do you go public or private? Should your kid participate in Girl Scouts or Boy Scouts? How young is too young to get a cell phone? What colleges should my daughter look at? How can my son increase his SAT scores?
Brookline Patch is here to help. We're establishing a Moms Council, where a small group Brookline moms (and dads!) will be available to answer readers questions—from sleep training to preschool selections to navigating the social waters of middle and high schoo—in a column every Wednesday.
But we can't do it without your help; after all, who knows more about parenting in Brookline than the parents of Brookline? We're looking for moms and dads with children of any age and any situation to help with this new feature. If you'd be interested in serving on the council, email editor Neal Simpson at firstname.lastname@example.org
