Moms Talk is a new feature on Barrington Patch that is part of a new initiative on our Patch sites to reach out to moms and families.
Barrington Patch invites you and your circle of friends to help build a community of support for mothers and their families right here in Barrington.
Each week in Moms Talk, our Moms Council of experts and smart moms take your questions, give advice and share solutions.
Moms, dads, grandparents and the diverse families who make up our community will have a new resource for questions about local neighborhood schools, the best pediatricians, 24-hour pharmacies and the thousands of other issues that arise while raising children.
Moms Talk will also be the place to drop in for a talk about the latest parenting hot topic. Do you know of local moms raising their children in the Tiger Mother’s way and is it the best way? Where can we get information on local flu shot clinics for children? How do we talk to our children about the Tucson shootings? How can we help our children’s schools weather their budget cutbacks?
Today's question deals with the bitterly cold temperatures we've been having lately.
"How can I keep my child entertained and busy without having to head outside in the cold?"
Moms, grandmothers, aunts, sisters, and cousins, please feel free to leave suggestions for the above question in the comments box!
