Mothershare

It's a humble beginning, and it may very well be a humble end, but I wanted to let people know about a site called Mothershare.

It's a wiki for mums, dads, carers, babysitters, grandparents, and hapless uncles like me who get called on to babysit every now and then.

There's lots that needs improving, but I don't have the time, money or talent to do it. (In some cases, one or the other, in some cases all three! ;) )

Perhaps more importantly, I'm not a parent, and I really feel it should be run by parents, and not just a few, but any who want to be involved.

Personally, I think it's a good thing, especially for first-time mums, or families moving to a new area. I've been amazed (and appalled) at seeing how steep the learning curve is for my sister Vicky and for other friends with children. Anything to reduce that, I think, is very much worthwhile. And that's why I'm helping in my own small way.

So there it is. Mothershare is out there, for you all to use, criticise, improve, ignore, nurture - whatever you see fit! Rough and ready? Yup, but being tidied up all the time. Useful? I really hope so.

It is undeniable. Pace of life changes when one gets less of the home support. Moms are to be credited for 60% of ones success through life.

A good post...
