Newsgroup Spotlight: Pregnancy and Parenting Newsgroups

May 20th, 2009

Parenting is a tough job….really tough.  At the same time, it’s arguably one of the most important jobs any of us will ever have.  Usenet parenting newsgroup communities have a rich history of helping others, making new parenting friends, and to grow as a parent.  These parenting newsgroups have historically had a long lasting positive impact on the lives of many parents and children.

Usenet parenting newsgroups are a great source of information and support for parents, and parents-to-be. Parenting newsgroup communities, like misc.kids invites you to participate in parenting discussions – by either asking for advice/support or providing answers and sharing parenting tips with others.

Many Usenet newsgroups also provide critical information such as the decision-making moment that women face during crisis pregnancies on misc.kids.pregnancy. There are newsgroups that assist adopters and birth parents to find families by helping hopeful adoptive parents make adoption dreams come true on adoption newsgroups such as alt.adoption.issues and alt.adoptive.parenting. There are parenting newsgroups such as soc.adoption.parenting and alt.adoptive.parenting that are committed to helping children in the U.S. and around the world, who otherwise wouldn’t be able to find families.

Many parenting newsgroups have been created and have lasted throughout the years with the goal of building an online community of parents.  These newsgroups are only a great source of information for parents, but also a venue that both outreaches and provides resources to the parenting community at large.
