Park Slope Parents (PSP) is a community of 6,500+ families in Brooklyn, NY. Since 2002, PSP members have shared advice on everything from childcare and camps to hairdressers and healthcare. We've coped with teething, terrible twos, the tween years, and more. We have over 100 specialty groups, including cooking, gardening, allergy, LGBTQ, crafting, single/divorced/separated, middle school, high school, and even a new college discussion group!
Park Slope Parents recognizes that families take many forms, including two-parent families, single-parent families, blended families, same-sex families, foster families, multi-racial families, adoptive families, and more. We have a "family" membership based on the multitude of different compositions of both caregiver(s) and child(ren).
