My teen is seemingly always on her iphone or her laptop. She texts, Skypes, IMs and is constantly in contact with her friends, teachers and the world at large as she is one of the few teens on Twitter. I worry continually about who she is talking with online, whether there is any bullying going on and how she is handling herself. We’ve had numerous talks about online safety and bullying as she has had a bully who has followed her from the real world to her online world for…Read More
The holidays are upon us whether we want it or not. The stores are full of decorations, holiday music and touting their layaway plans. And moms will be armed with their smartphones and using apps to get more done and make sure they are shopping smarter. Anything that helps her feel more organized, less stressed and makes shopping more convenient will
According to eMarketer, younger moms are more when it comes to mobile shopping activities, like researching new products,…Read More
The minute she becomes a mom, everything changes forever and particularly the way she spends. Everything from the media she consumes, the technology she uses to shop, and what she expects. How much does the American Mom spend? About $2.1 trillion is attributed to mom’s current spending power. That’s right $2.1 trillion dollars. So how are you going to connect with her and get your piece of her marketing dollars?
A recent Baby Center study called the 2011 Shopping…Read More
I like Ivory’s new campaign and packaging. I love the headlines. I love the colors. And I love it not just because I’ve been an Ivory girl for years. It works on so many levels. And I think moms will love it, too. It’s nice to see a 130-year old brand evolve for today’s market. They’ve tapped into several things I think make it work for moms:
Simplicity: no rhetoric, no gimmicks, straightforward language. “Meticulously scented to smell exactly like soap.”…Read More
I received an email as a part of the ABC Million Moms Challenge. So I tweeted about pneumonia and how it’s killing children around the world. And it lit up my stream with moms talking about personal experiences with pneumonia: family, friends and children dying from it, secondary diseases as a result like exercise induced asthma and loss of part of their lungs. And contrary to what most of us believe, it is NOT a disease of the elderly.
ABC Million Moms and the United Nations…Read More

One of the keys to social media is listening to your community. Well, the Mom-entum community has spoken and asked for a twitter party. Not only did they ask, but several volunteered to be co-hosts and to gather twitter party prizes. So in the spirit of following an important social media rule of thumb, I’m throwing a twitter party this Friday.
But it won’t be just Dads, we will have Dad co-hosts. It should be a very interesting conversation around parenting styles. “Who is in…Read More
There has already been conversation around the Walmart moms and their ability to sway conversation and direction for the upcoming presidential campaign race. And they won’t be the only moms weighing in. Avital Norman Nathman of The Mamafesto and Lisa Duggan of TheMotherHoodBlog have gotten together to stage the first every “blog in” to gather moms and dads across the U.S. in a show of unity. They want parents to post the letter below in protest of the state of the U.S politics on…Read More
The new Dr. Pepper 10 campaign reminds me of when I was little and boys had clubhouses or signs on their bedroom doors that said, “No girls allowed.” Of course, it made us want to be inside more than ever.
Dr. Pepper 10’s tagline “Not for women” is a bold statement. It’s a 10 manly calorie drink, and they do say “manly”. Only for men. No women. Is that sexist? Have we gone from real men eat quiche to real men drink diet soda? A RAB mobile study says we have and…Read More
Happy Halloween! Millions of parents across America will be helping their children get dressed and taking them trick or treating tonight. In fact, it’s estimated that 41 million children between the ages of five and 14 will be trick or treating across America. And what were some of mom’s favorite brands on Facebook doing to help families celebrate and to encourage them to spend the predicted and scary $6.86 billion in costumes, candy and decorations?
Kool Aid goes Ghoulish…Read More
