Like most new parents, when Steve and Andrea Lacy were raising their first child, they had questions—and plenty of them. Being tech-savvy residents of Silicon Valley—Steve is a software engineer, Andrea an interaction designer—they turned to the Web and found a vocal community of parents like them, looking for fresh perspectives on raising their children. The only problem: it was all for moms by moms or, worse yet, “experts” to “idiots”.
This got them thinking, there really ought to be a single place to get quick and thoughtful answers to parenting questions – one that welcomes dads as first-class parents, one that treats experienced parents like the experts they are.
And so the Parents Guild was born. It’s a parenting Q and A site fueled by a diverse community that offers thoughtful perspectives on topics like pregnancy, health, child development and behavior, education, family, food, and products.
