CARBONDALE, COLO. – Homeschoolmomsformoms.com (HSMFM) is a free social network site that aims to offer all homeschool families a place to engage with other members regardless of educational philosophy, curriculum choice, religion, or reasons for homeschooling. We hope to provide a space where families can learn about each other, form friendships, find out about events, grow, and share their discoveries about learning.

The goal of Homeschool Moms for Moms is to bring families from different homeschooling philosophies together to discuss their similarities and differences for the good of individual families and the homeschool movement.

Homeschool Moms for Moms is part of the network of websites, Moms for Moms Communities, started by Janine Cuthbertson, which is a portal of hyper-local online social networks for moms to discuss, interact and engage within their own communities. It is also affiliated with the website OutdoorBabynetwork (created by Heidi Ahrens in 2008), a national website for families who enjoy the outdoors.

Using the successful Moms for Moms network as a template, site founders Cuthbertson and Ahrens are launching Homeschool Moms for Moms as a resource with online communities providing a forum where moms can connect, safely share information and resources tailored to their geographic area, support each other in homeschooling, and be inspired to build a stronger national homeschool network.

Homeschoolmomsformoms.com combines practical information while engaging national homeschooling families of different backgrounds. Homeschool Moms for Moms does not seek to replace other homeschool online resources but rather build, engage, and encourage dialogue between families. It is our hope that in this way we can create a meeting place for all homeschooling families. Parents can exchange advice about methods to use, curriculums that helped a special needs child, or simply share resources. Equally relevant to mothers with older children, the sites also serve as a platform to discuss educational and political issues, and even find a call to action. Moms create and join various groups within each site, such as Expecting Mamas, Families Living with Autistic Children, Gifted Education, or groups based on geographic locations.

Homeschool Moms for Moms is a safe place where moms are welcome to post photos of their children’s portfolios, work, crafts, artwork, and learning environments. Families can also post presentations of learning (videos) so that other families can see what a finished product looks like. It is a great way for children to get an audience for the efforts and hard work they have put into a homeschool project. Membership is free to all homeschool parents or the homeschool curious. To protect the safety of the sites, membership is moderated by the site administrator.

As the site grows it will become a national resource for homeschooling families of all backgrounds. All the information is relevant to the members because the content is user-generated by homeschool parents. The site also supports homeschool bloggers and businesses. Businesses may join the site as sponsors, promoters, and advertisers. To ensure the site stays free from clutter and irrelevant information, potential bloggers, businesses and advertisers are screened.

Homeschool Moms for Moms is an online community resource to connect with homeschooling mothers, share information, find and offer support, and be inspired by one another! To join and learn more about homeschooling visit Homeschoolmomsformoms.com, and for more information contact Heidi at heidi@homeschoolmomsformoms.com
