Parenting is hard. It is rather impossible to supervise your kids 24/7. Now in the Corona Virus new world, parenting is happening 24/7. Dallas moms need a break! Dallas dads need a break. Often times in Black communities, we aren’t afforded the relaxation of quality childcare support. Afrinanny.com is here to help you! Afrinanny is the only online marketplace where Black families can locate childcare providers with culturally relevant experience. An Afrinanny is a background checked-culturally assessed caregiver that provides families support in caring for their children. Dallas Black parents know that it takes a village to raise a child, but it has been increasingly more difficult to locate that village.
Here are 3 Reasons why you need an Afrinanny:
You need trusted help for your mental wellness. Studies show the difficulty and stress associated with raising children. As a mental health clinician, I have treated thousands of Black mothers in Dallas who point to lack of trusted childcare as a huge stressor. All Afrinannies must pass a full criminal background check and a basic safety exam. They also take a cultural assessment exam which will help parents gauge how the caregiver will react in scenarios that black children face all the time. Afrinannies are tested and trusted.
You need help that understands the stressors of being black in Dallas. Everyone wants to have a tribe that understands and relates to their cultural needs. You want your kids to be able to relate to a caregiver that is non-judgmental and give them sound advice on what it means to be Black in Dallas, and frankly black in general.
You need quality options for childcare. Looking at the current sites created to find childcare, one could assume that Black parents either don’t exist or need assistance. Surprisingly, there are no platforms curated for the millions of Black families in Dallas, Houston, the United States and the whole Diaspora. Black parents want quality options; with Afrinanny African Americans, Nigerians, Ghanaians, Brazilians, South Africans and people from the Diaspora finally have childcare products with them in mind.
