What is the best thing about raising kids in the New York City area?
The best thing about raising kids in the New York City area is the abundance of little adventures available to us. There is such a variety of experiences and never a shortage if you take the time to look. One thing I love to do—and that I believe our area makes possible—is being able to have our children experience in real life what we might read about in a book, whether that is exploring a farm or hailing a taxi or building sandcastles along the surf.
Who are your favorite parents/parenting sites to follow on social media?
There are so many parents worth following on Instagram. I cannot necessarily choose one favorite account. However, I would suggest if you find yourself unsure about what to do or what to feed your little ones to definitely use Instagram as a resource, as easy as searching #toddlerplay or #toddlerlunch. If you are looking to stay updated about actual events and resources for parents in your area, I would definitely recommend following NYMetroParents, which collects and curates all that the NYC area has to offer. Lastly, follow a fellow mom! Staying connected to local moms on Instagram and Facebook not only keeps me updated about local events, but let’s us share and empathize when it comes to parenting!
