I am always into sharing my own experience with others and learning from others experiences–hence this blog. If you agree and live in Northwest Philly, I suggest joining the Mt. Airy Parent’s Network. From their Website:
The Mt. Airy Parents Network (MAPN) is an organization of approximately 350 families in the Northwest neighborhoods of Philadelphia. In addition to notifying members of community events, playgroups, park dates, field trips, and other special events, MAPN provides an online discussion forum on issues related to education, parenting, families, and our wonderful community of Mt. Airy. Membership is free, but only open to parents, grandparents, and legal guardians.
They are also on Facebook.
