Family First: Facebook for Parents

Posted Tuesday, September 1, 2009 --- 11:00 a.m.

There's a lot to sort through in this back-to-school season, so we tracked down just where parents can trust for advice, good products, or just a good laugh on Facebook.

According to the Website, "Mashable," since it's so tough to sift through the millions of sites online, there are some Facebook fan pages worthy of a mom and dad's time.

The first one on the list: Stroller Traffic. It provides insight and tips on navigating through the world of parenthood with a nice blend of newsworthy items and product recommendations.

Number two on the list is the National Association for the Education of Young Children. It focuses solely on early childhood education and keeps followers updated on national initiatives. Parents can also track down regional affiliates to learn more about local and state programs.

The third most worthy Facebook fan page for parents is called "The Average Parent." They focus on things like time and cost-saving tips, special deals and kid-friendly establishments.

This one is created solely as a Facebook Fan Page, The Average Parent is updated regularly with original content, as well as with content aggregated from other sources.
