a company that place importance on providing a comprehensive and
holistic service to their customers.
parenting community provides a platform to harness the collective
knowledge of the thousands of parents that visit the Start-rite
web site every day. With so many parents coming to the site it’s
clear to see how this is the perfect opportunity to launch a thriving
parental advice community.
the community will inevitably provide a level of support for customer
purchasing decisions, it will also act as a more general community
for parenting issues and concerns. Despite only just being launched,
the new community is being well received by the public with many
people posting parenting questions, answers and parenting diaries
within the first week.
internet has become a great source of information for parenting
advice, and now Start-rite have took it upon themselves to
offer the benefits of a parenting community specifically to their
own users. As the parenting process can be difficult, is it great
to see a website supplying parents with a community where they
can turn to other parents for advice.
Start-rite parenting community has a number of features. The parenting
blogs feature allows individuals to run their own parenting diary
to share their parenting experiences, whilst the Question and
Answer section provides rapid responses and healthy debate on
any parenting related topics. Groups are also a big element to
the site, with the intention of providing meeting places forum
for discussion for parents who have similar interests.

within the new Start-rite community provides a great source of
entertainment providing loads of regularly updated activities
