What We Do

Parent Talk is a community-based organization helping families with young children connect, learn, play, and grow together. With that in mind, we offer 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.?

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 and our Facebook Page and Group. Through¬†Parents Talk, our content-rich newsletter, members receive real-time event announcements.

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 and other performances and concerts. Events for the social, information hungry grown-ups: Parent Talk’s Annual Summer Camp Fair; Parent Talk’s Used Clothing, Toy & Equipment Sale; and Flicks on the Field. View our complete list of events.
