Local Parent Network was started in October, 2013 by two New Orleans Natives, KatyMonnot and Cara Jouglard. They saw a need for a parenting site dedicated to their communities. Since it’s beginning Local Parent Network has grown into five community based parenting websites, seven active Facebook Pages, and one new community based website made for kids by kids. Our site owners and contributors are also active in their local communities and on various social media platforms. We have worked with brands such as Carnival Cruise Lines, Disney, Feld Entertainment, Audubon Nature Institute, Udis, Shrimp and Grits Kids, YMCA, Whole Foods, New Orleans City Park and many more.
