Most of us don’t have the time to call up that wise old friend every half hour to beg advice about quick meals and parenting techniques, nor does that friend even exist.  Thankfully, we now can turn to specialized websites for that quick fix of helpful recommendations and expert insights to get us through the days. 

Websites that help parents organize their lives in a simple way is a growing trend that will only continue growing as long as there are busy parents.  One new website that is developing quite a following among busy parents of kids ages newborn to about ten-years-old is  IttyBits offers a wide range of advice and recommendations to its members on anything from travel and entertainment to green living and parenting.  Subscribers to the site receive free daily emails that are both helpful and quick to digest.

Another website that many users may consider to be a lifesaver is  This website is designed to be a one stop shop for those in need of gifts for the little ones.  The best part of GiftHero is how simple it is to use.  All you have to do is give the child’s gender and age and how much you want to spend before multiple gift recommendations are displayed.  This is a great alternative to crowded stores or if you have just forgotten what 4-year-old girls are into. helps parents in need of expert advice on many subjects like school anxiety and single parenting.  This site includes a forum for parents to exchange wisdom related to raising kids.  TheParentReport also allows its users to track topical advice about their children based on their age from newborn to teenagers.  Of course these websites are never the final word on our daily decisions but they can offer great advice that we otherwise would not have had the chance to hear.

What do you think of visiting website like the ones discussed above for advice and recommendations?

Do you have a place you go to for this type of information on a daily basis?
