This post is part of a campaign sponsored by Covey App. All opinions are my own.
Remember when you first had kids and there was always something to do and you knew exactly where to go with these new little lifeforms in your life and all these parents were ready and available to hang out with you because you felt so lonely and often just needed to get out of the house?
Me neither. It can be very hard!!
When I had my first child, I remember how exciting and scary it was. I thought I knew everything. I thought I had it all figured out. Even without having family within 2000 miles of Burbank, I had many friends and we got together several times a month, but I still felt lonely. I thought it was insane. I mean, how does one feel “lonely” after literally bringing more people into your home.
If you’re a mom, you get it. And truly, I wish I had had something like this App when I first started having kids. But it’s applicable to me now too.
As a matter of fact, I created my website for families in the area to find things to do with their families because at the time, there wasn’t much out there for that. But, even with all of our options to connect online, the internet and social media has taken a certain element out of our friendships or potential friendships…by keeping us behind the screens.
It’s easier that way, sometimes, let’s admit. You know, to feel “social” without leaving the house because we’re tired or busy.
There is a new app, called Covey, that is a brilliant thing to add to your phone. Like, now. Go ahead and do it, I’ll wait………. Covey has made a new resource for parents that connects us with other parents who share in our same interests, hobbies and locations. This is an especially great way to connect with new parents with babies and toddlers that are in the same age group as yours. Covey was created by a team of moms and is run by a mom & ex-Google engineer. Parents can join Covey to connect with other parents for support & advice, within LA and outside.
Finding your tribe of parents can be very, very difficult. But, it is so very important.
