7 Cups of Tea is a brand new start up that connects people trained as active listeners with people who need and want to be heard.
- Want to vent about your child not sleeping?
- Want to commiserate about lip ties with another breastfeeding mom?
- Need to reach out to another parent with a special needs child?
- How about you plain old want someone to listen?
If you have answered YES to any of the above questions then I highly recommend signing up for 7 Cups of Tea. … and the best part about this service is that it is FREE!
As a first time mom living far away from all of my family and close friends I had a rough start to motherhood. All of my friends at the time were childless. They did understand what it was like to have poop shoot across the room at 3 am and hit the cat. All I wanted was someone to witness my pain! I felt very alone and very isolated.
After hearing about this service and remembering how much it sucked to be alone with a baby all day, I signed up to be a listener. I want to be there for other caregivers who needed someone to witness their trials and tribulations! It also seemed like it could be a fun opportunity to make some extra money during nap time! I enjoy that I can chose whether to accept chats through my phone or the web interface or I can opt to chose to talk on the phone. As the inherently shy person I opt for the chat interface 😉
I truly feel this new service will help not only first time moms but any parent, family friend, or anyone really who wants someone to hear what they have to say.
