I’m Nati Shaked, and I run Parents Space.
I’m thrilled that you’re here:)
Parents-Space is a space for connecting between parents, and people working with parents.
Let me tell you how it all started:
I was struggling to help my tween cope with some adolescent struggles.
I reached out to my inner circle of friends and family where I found support, but few answers, or even awareness, about what this age group was experiencing.
Knowing I needed guidance, I searched for experts in my area, but was surprised to find no one who specialized in tweens and the particular social dynamics unique to that age group.
Next, I turned to the internet, looking for parenting websites that could provide direction, but found very little in the way of clear advice.
As I looked for help, I became increasingly frustrated, and scared for my daughter and her friends. To help cope with the despair I was experiencing I started blogging about it.
I was overwhelmed by the attention the blog generated!
I received incredible support from complete strangers who could relate to what I was experiencing with my daughter. I felt tremendous relief just knowing I was not alone and that many parents were coping with similar challenges.
The hundreds of wonderful people that contacted me through my blog inspired me to build a parenting website for both experts and parents, dedicated to helping other parents cope and share, and to find support, advice, and parenting experts in their area
