There are many parenting groups on Facebook. Anyone can start a group. However, if you wish to keep abreast with parenting and educational news and network with other like minded parents, here are 5 Malaysian Parenting Facebook Groups we recommend you follow:
1. The Parenting Network
This is the group to go to if you have little ones at home from babies to toddlers to preschoolers. You will get lots of support from this group of parents with young children at home. The admin is easy going, friendly and does a diligent job of making sure his members are genuine parents. The group description reads as follows:
"This group is for everyone who supports good parenting. So if you are 1 or you are going to be parents soon, feel free to pour your thoughts and share your experiences here."
That's why we start off by talking about this group. Those who have little kids at home will feel at home here but even those with older kids are welcome too.
Group Status: Closed Group
Number of Members to date: 4807 members
Date Established: June 2013
2. The Malaysia Primary and Secondary Parents on Facebook group.
This is our Facebook group. Our group is part of our network of website, 12 year old blog and other social media. All parents with kids studying in primary and secondary schools in Malaysia are welcome to join our group. We also have many parents with kids in kindergartens and preschools in our group as they prepare to network and learn as much as possible before their children start primary schools. The parents in our group are very generous with sharing of ideas. As founder and admin of the group, I like to run exclusive contests, promotions and offers for the benefit of our group members.
This is part of our group description:
"This Facebook Group is primarily for parents with school going children. Those with kids in nursery and kindy can also join. This Group is a platform for healthy discussion on parenting issues especially those related to schooling and education. Whether your child is home schooled, in SJKC, SK or Private School, it does not matter, we will post and learn from one another. You can also ask for homework help. We can also de stress during exam time by sharing here so we don't feel so alone."
Public Group means Anyone can join or be added or invited by a member
