Facebook is a great place to connect with other parents and get support. But large platforms are often monitored by the founders; parents with children, work and outside lives. It can take a lot of time to monitor the conversations, but when does it become too much?
Carly Abrahams, founder of Mums the Word Aus and Mums Pages, was attacked in the press when she asked her members for a nominal fee to cover the time she spends on the site.
