They say it takes a village to raise a child -- but we think it takes an island!

Newsday has a Facebook parenting group for Long Islanders. We’d like to build a community of moms and dads, and provide a place for constructive dialogue about family life on Long Island.

The group is moderated by Newsday employees, with a network of community bloggers also participating. But while we’ll contribute to the conversation and post family content occasionally, we’re hoping Long Island moms and dads will shape the discussions of the group.

To join the group, visit facebook.com/groups/LIparents/.
