Finally, A Place for You…
Summer is upon us with the usual 100 days of May–the scrabble to make awards dinners, teacher appreciations, and end of year performances, while also throwing together vacation plans, and scrambling to figure out how to keep our children happily occupied for 11 weeks. It’s no wonder we’re Overwhelmed, and on top of all that, we find ourselves squarely in the path of three major tsunamis.
The New York Times has done an amazing job recently of giving color to these seemingly supernatural forces that make life for us so challenging:
- Women Did Everything Right: Then Work Got Greedy
- The Relentless of Modern Parenting(otherwise known as Intensive Parenting)
- The Challenges of Digital Parenting with Apple
While we can’t do anything about the first two (at least for now), we’ve been actively working toward making ‘Parenting Technology’ easier. We’ve long believed that women need a better way to keep up with technology, especially when it comes to our kids. So while you’ve been preparing for summer, we’ve been preparing for you, building our platform to offer our Friends a better experience.
With best wishes,
Founder and CEO

We love when women step into their role as Chief Technology Officer for their family and embrace the responsibilities that go with it. We had some good laughs, and technology can actually make you giggle when you know something your kids don’t!
