Growing Up NYC: A New Parenting Resource from the Mayor's Office

A couple weeks ago, I attended a blogging event at City Hall with NYC's First Lady Chirlane McCray (#FLONYC) and members of her team to discuss a new initiative for city parents. Growing Up NYC is an online tool aimed at helping make the hurdles of city parenting easier by putting information at our fingertips on everything from your child's developmental milestones to events and programming happening citywide. 

Geared at ages 0-12 (with expansion through the teenage years in the planning stages), the website will also be made available in handbook format at libraries in the 5 boroughs. Have a question about pre-k? Want to find a story time in your area? Curious about what's happening in Central Park this weekend? You can find all of this and much more on Growing Up NYC.

I was so happy to learn about this new website, in addition to the enthusiasm from staffers as they bring it to the public. Parenting is hard, but there's no doubt that city living can present a few additional challenges here and there. Growing Up NYC is now available to help us along the way, and I encourage you to bookmark the site as it continues to develop content.
