Reading the article in the Herald Sun about Generation Y turning to the internet for advice rather than seeking their community help, I wondered if this was only limited to Gen Y?
This study only looked at 18-24 year-old parents but with sites such as Essential Baby, Kidspot & Parenting Australia many parents no matter their generation don’t need to travel far from the couch for quality advice from experts and support from other parents.
What I did find surprising from the study was that three quarters of parents believed there was not enough support for young parents. With the world of knowledge and like-minded parents at their fingertips my questions is what type of support are they missing? Maybe that’s where community groups should step up to plate?
If you have a parenting concern or question, who do you turn to first?
