It Takes A Village
The new Village for Parents app is the brainchild of a Dallas dad who wants parents to be able to get all of their questions answered — fast. Download the app from iTunes to post a query, search by topic, or browse the feed to see what people are discussing. You get feedback from other moms, dads, and experts in everything from sleep to nutrition, because each question is automatically sent to parents with kids in the same age range, along with the appropriate pros (like Emily Daingerfield, mental health therapist or Becky Roosevelt, certified child sleep consultant). The app is national, but you can get local info through questions like: “What are some great parks around Dallas for toddlers?” Plus, you'll receive alerts for special discounts on new products.
