What are other parents who have switched their groups to Tinyhood saying?

'When my mom group was using Facebook, I always felt that I was missing posts because Facebook shows my friends and family’s posts ahead of my group posts. Now all my mom group posts are in one place so I don’t worry about missing anything.'
'My mother’s group is so active that most of us are forced to hide the posts from our main news feed. I couldn’t remember to look at my mom group discussions. I am more engaged with my mom group on Tinyhood because I get emails alerting me to the posts and I know exactly where to find them.'
'I love that with Tinyhood, we get emails with the conversations that happened that day.'
'As a highschool teacher, we are encouraged to stay off of Facebook for privacy reasons and I know many of the others in my school have done the same. It is frustrating that I can’t be part of my mother’s group without being on Facebook! I appreciate the privacy Tinyhood offers because I know all of the other members of my group are parents too.'
'My group had been using a different platform for years and I was anxious about making the transition. Tinyhood made it a seamless process for us and we were completely transitioned within a couple days.'
