Do you have a parent support team? I think I do have a support team as a parent. I have a lot of online mom friends that I talk to on facebook all of the time. They are all very nice mommies that help each other at and help each other out and just be there. Some times I feel they are the only ones that understand me and how I feel as a parent and a mother.

Well, aside from my real parents, my closest friends are the people that help me a lot in so many ways. And I am happy that despite the years and distance, they have been there for me whenever I need them.

That is good. I do have family that is around to help me and my husband but it's not the same as my online friends that support me. They are two different supports but I still like the more that someone always knows how I feel.

Not everything that we feel is true or right. And the perfect person/ people to help us with it are those whom we can trust. We need to know how others perceive our situation and then base our decision or it can help us weigh things better.

I trust a handful of family members. But that's not what I'm talking about the trust part. I'm talking about the emotional support that no everyone would understand because they aren't going through it any more. I have lots of support in my life from family when we need it but I need more of my online family support we share everything advise and all.

No I don't also never had although I joined an online group for parents with a lot of kids for some time. To be honest I never had any support over there it was more about reading tips etc. But mostly I already knew them. Mainly because I took care of my siblings, I was a mother at a young age, been foster parent for over 12 years. So been in all kind of situations (might be Lucky as well or creative enough to find out myself?). So the people I met (and still meet) are in most cases way younger as I am, with less experiences or perhaps it's confidence?
