Kidoinfo Presents: Parents Using Social Media

[ 3 ] January 7, 2010 |

I launched Kidoinfo over two years ago to connect parents with information; to their kids, to other parents, to their community. As a new parent I wanted to learn about what was available in terms of events, ideas, coping strategies, and resources, and I wanted a way to share this information with others. I have learned a great deal over the years – and think I am a better mother as a result – thanks to advice from friends and parents I barely know. Now my boys are 8 years old and although I am long done with diapers and night feedings, I am still discovering great things available for families in Rhode Island and the connections I make with other parents are essential and meaningful to me.  Although Kidoinfo is a website, a blog, and a weekly email, these are only the tools that help us to engage in real life with our kids and our community.

Continuing on this path, I have decided to initiate a series of networking and educational events called KidoConversations, which will address a range of topics on how online and offline resources can benefit our life and business while helping to foster deeper community connections. I am excited to introduce this new means for connecting with other parents, readers, colleagues, and friends.PanelistsPanelists Parents Using Social Media

This event will provide a unique opportunity to interact with these experts in parenting and business in a question and answer discussion. In addition, the panelists will share their favorite online resources in a special handout, “Parents’ Guide to Social Media.”
