Today we are featuring a local mom who started a Facebook Group called Queen Bees.
Introducing Rebecca J.
As parents (especially mothers) we are always looking for community. As society has changed, things have shifted from in person groups to a more worldly connection online. Many of us are a part of Facebook and Communities/Groups but it is the quality of the groups that many of us are searching for.
Why did you start Queen Bees?
̈Of course I started it because I was a mod in another mom group they blocked me without even telling me what I did wrong (if I even did anything). So then I made queen bees so mommas had a safe place to vent and talk about anything. Husbands and boyfriends are great but you can't talk to them about periods, or child birth or postpartum. They try to understand but they can ́t. Also, I'm a stay at home mom so this group gives me an outlet it has helped me a ton ̈
Queen bees - 162 members
This is a fun mom group where we can vent and make new friends. Being a mom can be lonely so I want a safe place for mom's to vent and be there for each other
