I really do Bundoo! You should too!

unnamed (1)

Have you ever worried about your child and Google searched and searched to find out what to do? Most parents have been there and done that! I remember when my son was a baby and a toddler and I would search the parenting books and online trying to find answers about milestones, behavior, health symptoms. Sometimes it would take so much time and sometimes I couldn’t even find the answer! Sometimes, it wouldn’t be a medical emergency and I would wait nervously by the phone for our Pediatrician to call back. (And, I love our Pediatrician!) Well..now there really is a solution!  Bundoo! The Bundoo community includes parents and Bundoo Childcare Experts sharing information and advice you can trust. This is such a great resource for parents, especially new parents!

Bundoo is primarily a FREE resource with the added perk of the paid Ask Bundoo service.

 Bundoo.com offers a wealth of information and an online community for smart, busy parents. Some of Bundoo’s amazing key features include:

  • Free articles reviewed and written by pediatricians, OB/GYNs and child development specialists
  • Marketplace that features pediatrician-approved products
  • The groundbreaking Ask Bundoo paid service that connects parents directly with pediatricians, OB/GYNs and other childcare experts to answer questions privately so that parents can get peace of mind without having to make a trip to the doctor and pay a co-pay.

I signed up and tried this great resource out and am quite impressed with Bundoo! I love that I can just log in and ask a question and will get an answer back rather quickly! Bundoo A-Z also has such helpful and interesting articles! The Categories include: pregnancy, Babies, Toddlers, Health issues, Feeding and Family Life. Oh, how I wish I had this resourceful website to go to when my son was a baby and toddler! The Bundoo Community is also a great place to join groups and make new friends. Check it out today by clicking here.  You can also check them out on Facebook and Twitter!

Press The President Celebrates International Women’s Day By Writing, A Difference Can Be Made to Empower Women and Free Them from Forced Marriage and Other Issues

On March 8th, citizens across the globe will celebrate International Women’s Day. This practice has been in place since Russian women first observed the holiday in 1913 on the eve of World War I in a campaign for peace. Although equality for women has come a long way both in the U.S. and globally, there is still much more to be done. This March, in addition to celebrating women, Press the President is asking writers to speak out on issues they are passionate about and raise awareness about how much work still needs to be done.

 

“Fourteen million young women are forced into marriage at age 13 to men average age 37. One in nine girls are married before they turn 15. The leading cause of death for girls age 15-19 is childbirth,” said the Founder of Press the President. “These are horrifying facts and yet so few people are aware of them. It is time for Americans to push Congress and the President on supporting bills that will save lives and ultimately makes this a better world for women to grow-up in. It is not a question of whether or not to support programs that combat these issues, it’s a question of how. Writing for Press the President and getting the word out is a start.”

 

Press the President is a worldwide forum for unfiltered debate about U.S. issues that affect the globe. The site’s founders have created a space where writers can express their opinions freely. Americans are often criticized as not having enough of a political voice. Press the President provides a platform for people who want to make their voices heard from the White House to Main Street. Online visitors can share their views at www.pressthepresident.com or visit our Facebook page athttps://www.facebook.com/ptp.us to join in our weekly debates.

 

In addition to writing about these issues, Americans can join The International Center for Research on Women (ICRW), a global research institute with headquarters in Washington, D.C., for an upcoming event at The National Press Club. Event Details are below:
