Join Parent Talk

Parent Talk is a community-based organization helping families with young children connect, learn, play, and grow together. With that in mind, we offer you, our members, a seemingly endless array of programs and activities for kids and grown-ups, opportunities to give back to the community, communications and so much more. And did we mention the unbelievable discounts with area enrichment programs, retailers, gyms, etc.?

People join Parent Talk for a variety of reasons. Many are new to the community and looking to connect with other parents of young children. Others are settled in the community yet eager to make new connections and participate in Parent Talk’s extensive members-only programming, including small-group events, special-interest clubs and outings, or want help finding the right playgroup and the ability to visit Parent Talk’s dedicated indoor play space.

Some join for the unbeatable financial benefits including free access to all Parent Talk lectures (a $40 value per lecture!), free museum passes, plus numerous discounts to area businesses including $189 savings for an annual YMCA family membership.

Taking advantage of just one of these discounts more than pays for your Parent Talk membership. Whatever your reason, we appreciate your support and look forward to getting to know you in the months ahead!

Communications

Parent Talk communicates with members through a number of channels, but our greatest aim is to enable members to communicate with each other. Find support, recommendations, tips, tools, tricks and more in Parent Talk’s Yahoo Group. Through Parent Talk Matters, our content-rich newsletter, and our email e-zine, members receive real-time event announcements along with loads of expert advice, informative reading, ideas for children’s activities, a calendar of events, and more.

Community Service

Several times a year, Parent Talk invites members to participate in meaningful community service projects in the communities where we live and work.

Discounts

Parent Talk is thrilled to partner with many local businesses and organizations to be able to offer substantial discounts to our members. From $189 off an annual family membership to the Charles River YMCA, to substantial discounts at numerous enrichment vendors, restaurants, retailers, and salons, Parent Talk’s annual membership fee can literally pay for itself in seconds.

Family Events

Parent Talk hosts all kinds of fun, creative enrichment events for members all year long. Events for the child in all of us, such as: visits to the Circus, Backyard Bubbles and Pizza Making Parties, Elmo (need we say more?), LINX and MyGym playdates, and endless performances and concerts. Events for the social, information hungry grown ups: Parent Talk’s Annual Preschool Fair; Parent Talk’s Used Clothing, Toy & Equipment Sale; Casino Night; and Flicks on the Field. View our complete list of events.

Lectures

Combining hot parenting topics with renowned speakers and panels (Dr. Michael Thompson, Dr. Richard Ferber, Dr. Robert Brooks, Parenting on Track, to name a few…) mixed with just enough relaxed social time, Parent Talk has created one of the greatest member and community attractions. Parent Talk lectures are FREE for members. Here are just a few examples from the past year: Improving Your Child’s Sleep, Raising Boys, Kindergarten Readiness, Going Green, and Improving Sibling Relationships. View our Lecture Series.
