The convenience of city living has more families than ever choosing urban environments over the suburbs. But while city life is convenient, it can also be isolating and expensive. Hectic schedules, lack of kid-friendly spaces, and the rising cost of childcare all make living in a city more difficult for families.
Forming relationships with other families not only fosters a richer social life but allows you to share in the joys and burdens of raising children. Members of a community can also better support each other, whether they’re recommending a great pediatrician or empathizing about the struggles of potty training.
