PhillyTweens.com was started as a resource for parents and kids trying to navigate the city and the world. Sharing stories can save lives. As a writer, I’ve been fortunate to share my personal stories of everything from postpartum anxiety, chronic illness, parenting, sexuality, and even mundane day to day issues. I’ve seen first hand how some of these stories have touched people, and I’ve also had my perspective changed my thousands of stories I’ve read online. When I’ve gone through difficulties in my own life, reading the stories of strangers has often been the anchor I needed to pull me back to shore. We all need advice, resources, access, and, sometimes, just commiseration. That was the reason I started Spit That Out, and now that my children have reached new milestones, it’s the reason I’ve started PhillyTweens. I hope this site will be a resource for everything from sharing events, activities, and businesses to expert advice to personal stories from both parents and kids. Most of all, I hope it will be helpful. Because it truly does take a village – on and offline.
