Kent Patch Moms Talk Q&A: Snow Days
Chat and interact with parents in Kent about issues related to your children every Wednesday
Moms Talk is a new feature on Kent Patch that is part of a new initiative on Patch sites across the nation to reach out to moms and families.
Kent Patch invites you and your circle of friends to help build a community of support for mothers and their families right here in Kent.
Each week in Moms Talk Q&A, our Moms Council of experts and smart moms take your questions, give advice and share solutions.
Our Kent Patch Moms Council members are: Alice Ickes, Barbara Barkley, Debra-Lynn Hook and Michelle Sahr. What makes them experts, you ask? Take a look at their profile pages to see how diverse their parenting experiences are.
Consider them your go-to moms for all things parenting related in Kent. As the Moms Talk Q&A continues, we'll be adding more parenting experts to our Kent Patch Moms Council to give you an even greater resource.
Moms, dads, grandparents and the diverse families who make up the Kent community can use this new resource for questions about local neighborhood schools, the best pediatricians, 24-hour pharmacies and the thousands of other issues that arise while raising children.
Moms Talk Q&A will also be the place to drop in for a talk about the latest parenting hot topic (did someone say all-day kindergarten?).
Do you know of local moms raising their children in the Tiger Mother's way, and is it the best way? Where can we get information on local flu shot clinics for children? How do we talk to our children about the Tucson shootings? How can we help our children's schools weather their budget cutbacks?
Those are just some examples of the questions we'll tackle each Wednesday afternoon.
So grab a cup of coffee and settle in as we start the conversation today with a timely question from our Kent Patch Moms Council members.
Our first question: How did this week's two snow days in a row affect your busy schedule, and how did you make it work?
