Recap: #ProudToParent Twitter Chat

Last night’s twitter chat was amazing! Thank you to all the young parents who joined us and the fabulous organizations who popped in: @LaUReNsSDaD1118 @PEACE_LOVEx3 @RougeLioness @TheYoungMommy @queenteenmama @Taitersz @GloriaMalone @nikagurl5889 @miaaye_ @stevi11 @AriellaFaith @happysuperfoods @forestdaledads @NatashaVianna @LisetteYOrellan @c_pichardo @entee0112.

Our young parent chats are hosted by @ProudToParent on twitter every Tuesday night at 8:00 PM ET and usually ends by 9:00 PM ET. During each chat, young parents (near and far) will have a chance to meet each other, share their stories, and connect virtually. We know young parenthood is an isolating experience so we hope these chats provide young parents with a place to find support and offer others their experience on common issues.

Here are some tweets from last night:

@ProudToParent #ProudToParent is an awesome idea. Next week we’d love to see more young dad’s groups involved!

@ProudToParent Many people think young parents shouldnt have me time. #proudtoparent

@ProudToParent  I don’t have any friends with children except for one but she’s a little older than me. I haven’t found any online either

@ProudToParent I feel like I have people to lean on when I need them! I hope I have tha affect on other parents 2#ProudToParent

@ProudToParent love chatting with other young parents! I live on a block w/ ALL retirees – no young parents! #ProudToParent


We also took a moment to highlight some awesome young dads on twitter:

We’d love to find more young dads! Nominate them on twitter using the #ProudToParent hashtag.
