Our Big Bang

The Modern Parent

The modern parent is curious and wants to learn ways to best support their children. They know that how we show up matters because it deeply impacts a child’s brain, body, spirit, and overall sense of self.

While working with hundreds of families, I recognized that curious and caring parents often feel unsure and lack personalized, heart-felt support. Instead, parents either keep their worries to themselves or feel bombarded by the overwhelming amount of parenting advice and videos on their daily feeds.

PlaySpace was created to offer a safe and educational space for parents to learn, reflect, and grow.
