Brighton, Michigan (PressExposure) January 30, 2008 -- Two Brighton, Michigan couples teamed up this past year and launched a new parenting website called Plugged In Parents. With their collective knowledge in health care, business, technology and teaching, they aim to provide the latest, family-orientated information parents need to stay "plugged in."
Dr. Hillary, a pediatric practitioner, heads the health, baby and nutrition sections. There, you can find articles on your child's development, common childhood ailments, and many other topics related to infants, toddlers, children and adolescents. The most recent articles included information on why cough & cold medications were pulled from the shelves, what you need to know about Staph and MRSA infections, and toy safety. As a helpful feature, Dr. Hillary can be contacted personally regarding your health questions via a link available on the website.
Although the main focus of Plugged in Parents is childhood health, safety and nutrition, the website provides other valuable information that covers all facets of family life. There is a selection of tasty and nutritious recipes that are quick to prepare and won't break the bank. The money & technology section offers information on what to look for when buying a car, how to save money in college, and how to select a good but affordable laptop. An entire section on pets provides pros and cons of different animals or breeds, along with training techniques and tips. There are also ideas for enriching, family activities and family movie reviews by Movie Mama. An interactive forum is provided so that parents can share insightful stories and tips, recipes, and opinions with fellow parents.
The website is updated frequently with an abundance of family-friendly information.
