Moms Talk is a new feature on Belmont Patch that is part of a new initiative on our Patch sites to reach out to moms, dads, parents, caregivers and families.
Belmont Patch invites you and your circle of friends to help build a community of support for mothers and their families right here in Belmont.
Each week in Moms Talk, we will take your questions, help solicit advice from our readers and share solutions.
Moms, dads, grandparents and the diverse families who make up our community will have a new resource for questions about local neighborhood schools, the best pediatricians and the thousands of other issues that arise while raising children.
Moms Talk will also be the place to drop in for a talk about the latest parenting hot topic. Do you know of local moms raising their children in the Tiger Mother's way and is it the best way? Where can we get information on local flu shot clinics for children? How can we help our children's schools weather their budget cutbacks?
This week's question, submitted by a reader, considers why a growing number of educated, middle class parents in places such as Southern California are delaying or foregoing altogether vaccinations for their children.
Q: Do you consider all vaccinations safe? Have you fully vaccinated your children?
