Mother and Publisher Launches Global Parenting Site via Pipeno
NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - September 15, 2010) - Positively Parenting is a new parenting and family website hosted by Pipeno that launched recently in late summer 2010. Its aim is to start a worldwide conversation between parents who unite in their mission to raise optimistic and engaged children.
After working on regional and commercial family magazines for the past 10 years, Executive Editor Danielle Sullivan said she wanted to get rid of superficial parenting fluff and create content that makes a difference. "Parenting is so much more than what many typical parenting magazines offer. Moms and dads need each other to lean on when raising a child, especially when they are facing a new challenge, whether it is potty training, school anxiety, or an illness," said Sullivan.
In a little over one month, the website has gained users as far as the United Kingdom and The Netherlands. Positively Parenting offer psychological advice and comfort from experts in their fields and insightful bloggers on important topics, such as health, education, emotional issues, learning disabilities, as well as hands on advice and tips for practical parenting matters.
The website might best be considered a social networking site that meets a parent magazine and one of the main goals is to foster connections with parents all over the world. Using a brand new social publishing platform put out by Pipeno, the website offers many interactive features. Users can participate directly by sending virtual gifts, entering contests, commenting on articles, and joining in discussions.
