parentree.in – An Indian parenting community

Chennai based parent tree communications have started an online community for indian parents. The website aims to boost the identity of an individual as a parent and connect him or her to a network of like-minded individuals. They are also focusing on bringing in revenues throug advertisements and online stores in near furture.

Sathya Narayanaswamy, founder and CEO, Parentree. There are very many sites US-based websites which are focusing on family heritage, like genius and others and also there is one such website by name IndiaParenting.com but parentree focus on practical aspects of Indian parenting by enabling parent-to-parent conversations and advice.

FYI, from Aloo Techie:

Parentree.in was founded by Shobha Durairajan and Sathya Narayanaswamy, parents of two little children. The idea was sparked when they often found themselves depending on the parents around them to gather information about what worked best for their children. So they decided to establish this idea on the web, for Indian parents across the globe to benefit from each other’s knowledge. The website first went through a soft launch on August 15, 2008 to a small group of parents.

  1. Hi Deepak. I am a student of NUJS kolkatta and i am currently working at Breakthrough, Delhi. This post caught my eye as it very sensitively deals with the current issue of building Indian parenting communities which you have managed put in focus quite well.
    Well, I work on a youth oriented site called http://www.bellbajao.org and would love for you to blog on it. Posts like this one, which bring to the fore discussions and debates carrying on in the social media world around sensitive topics like Domestic Violence. This we do, on the Bell Bajao site as well, where we have a category called “Social Media Buzz” which houses blogs highlighting conversations from social networking sites, blogs and other websites.
    Please visit the site and do write back to me at namrata_2224@hotmail.com about your thoughts on the campaign.And if you’re interested, do blog on the site as well. And if you’re a regular blogger, we’d be happy to put you on our blogroll and crosslink your blog page on our site.

    Thanks and hoping to hear from you,
    Namrata.

  2. After going through this topic i checked the parentree.in. Spent about 30 minutes on it and found it a very good website. but there is one more that i would like to mention here. Its is

    http://www.indianmomsandbabies.com.

    I liked it because other than the information for parents it has lot of stuff for kids too. And very colorful and attractive.

    So Deepak you can write about one more site and parents like me will be thankful to you for sending them to the gateways of parenting information.

    I thank you for bringing http://www.parentree.in to my knowledge

    Thanks,
    Sahara
