Parents are everywhere, but a lot of them are on social media speaking about their strengths, concerns, insights, and funny anecdotes.  As a child development and parenting expert I always enjoy reading the tweets and blogs these parents share. So this year I had the opportunity to meet a large group of them at Hispanicize 2016 (#Hispz16).  Hispanicize is the largest annual event for influencers, journalists, and digital content creators to connect with brands and their public.  It was an amazing event full of information and wonderful giveaways. I enjoyed watching the sense of community among the attendants.  I was excited to attend and meet in person so many of the wonderful parent bloggers who so candidly share about their lives.  I was especially excited to meet up with Diana Limongi also known as LadyDeeLG.
