Believe it or not, moms and dads have interests besides raising their kids. Many online parenting communities rarely acknowledge this fact, but parent.co wants to change that. The website — backed by Parent Co., the Burlington-based company that owns private photo-sharing app Notabli — launched in January. Billing itself as a resource for the modern parent, the site features a mix of interviews, stories and essays with topics ranging from travel to technology, pop culture to relationships. Recent posts include an interview with cartoonist Harry Bliss, a playlist titled "Snow Day Jams" and weekly "internet field trips" that offer interesting links to share with the kids. Parent.co is still evolving, according to editor-in-chief Edward Shepard. He hopes to create a site where parents can learn from each other about how to create more balanced lives. "Our standard of success is if it's something we want to use ourselves," he says.
