Parents

Nobody said it was easy…
but does it really have to be
this hard? Honeycomb
makes it easy for parents to
have each other’s backs.

For human history, parenting has been social –– designed to be shared across families.

But over the past few generations, parenting has become measurably harder:
parents have doubled the hours they spend parenting,
despite families having drastically fewer hours available

(well over 70% of families do not have a stay-at-home parent).

Intensive parenting combined with the lack of tools and loss of community
has resulted in parenting becoming friction-filled, logistically challenging, and isolating.

Let's fix this, together!

Stop the scheduling shuffle

Know when your kid’s friends are free for playdates, and get alerts when your kid’s free slots match their favorites.

Offer up multiple time slot options and find an available friend quickly through clever tools.

Get time back +
save money on care.

Shared parenting means kids get more social time, and parents get time back (and spend less time and money on babysitters). But it’s so hard to organize! Honeycomb does the work:

  • Makes it easy to find opportunities
    through shared calendars
  • Manages and updates shared
    schedules between families
  • Keeps all parents up to speed on logistics
    with reminders, updates and changes

Get organized
(without all the work)

Let Honeycomb be the assistant for your community’s social life and kid activities, organizing logistics into one delightful experience, giving gentle deadlines, prompting for responses, sending reminders, and keeping everyone on top of the details.

Build trusted relationships

Get to know your community through a
beautiful visual directory of your kid’s
classroom, team or activity group –– and
get to truly know the families, siblings and
caregivers in your community.

Reclaim joy

Parenting is better together.

FAQ

Can I create multiple groups?

Yes! Multiple groups are ideal, as long as each group has at least 3-4 families who all know each other or are connected (e.g. via a classroom, neighborhood, team, place of worship, etc.)

What’s an ideal group size?

Four families is a good minimum, and we’ve found that groups up to 25 families (i.e. entire classroom) also work really well.

What’s shared parenting?

From carpooling, to swapping after-school care, to taking turns getting kids to/from activities, shared parenting means being responsible for your own child as well as another child not related to you, without compensation but often with an expectation of taking turns. The hurdle to shared parenting has always been coordinating schedules, staying on top of the logistics and inevitable schedule changes, and remembering who is on point for what. But now Honeycomb takes care of all that!

When is shared parenting going to be ready?

We hope to have our first shared parenting features out by December 2022. Today, you can use Honeycomb to get magically easy playdates and family gatherings.
