Advice From Moms Who Have Been There and Done That1:43 PM
This post is brought to you in collaboration with the SmartMom app, all opinions are my own.
Parenting doesn't come with a manual that tells you how to deal with all the issues and questions that will inevitably arise when you are raising your little ones. In fact, as a mom of four boys, there have been times when I wish I had had someone I could have turned to, to get their advice on what I should or shouldn't do. Now, "There's an app for that!" The new SmartMom app is a place where moms can go, to get real-time advice from other moms. You don't have to worry about feeling alienated or wait for hours for a response either. In fact, 75% of questions asked in the SmartMom app have responses within 10 minutes! How is that for support?
What is the SmartMom App?
Imagine a place where you and your friends could get together and bounce ideas and advice off of each other about parenting topics. That is basically the environment that the SmartMom app provides. It is a place where moms can come together and ask questions on anything from potty training to advice on how to handle bad behavior. There are no right or wrong answers, just other moms giving their own advice and perspectives.
The SmartMom app is completely free, and signing up is simple. Once you are logged in, you can view the most recently asked questions or sort by those that don't have any answers yet. You can browse for questions that are similar to your own, post a question of your own, or weigh in with answers or advice to other's questions. The think I noticed right away and love most about the SmartMom app, is there is no bickering or judgement, just helpful advice delivered in a friendly way.
If you are a mom of younger children, say five and under, then the SmartMom app is going to be an invaluable resource to you, as most of the questions are from parents with children in that age range. If you are a mom of older children, you are definitely welcome to ask a question, but you may be able to also help out by answering questions from parents of younger children. Why should you? Well, first because it is nice to do, but also because each month the most active members have a chance to win great prizes like diapers for a year, breast pumps, strollers and more!
