Moms Talk is a new feature on Wilmington Patch that is part of a new initiative on our Patch sites to reach out to moms and families.
Wilmington Patch invites you and your circle of friends to help build a community of support for mothers and their families right here in Wilmington.
Each week in Moms Talk, our Moms Council of smart moms take your questions, give advice and share solutions.
Moms, dads, grandparents and the diverse families who make up our community will have a new resource for questions about local neighborhood schools, the best pediatricians, 24-hour pharmacies and the thousands of other issues that arise while raising children.
Moms Talk will also be the place to drop in for a talk about the latest parenting hot topic. Do you know of local moms raising their children in the Tiger Mother's way and is it the best way? Where can we get information on local flu shot clinics for children? How do we talk to our children about the Tucson shootings? How can we help our children's schools weather their budget cutbacks?
So grab a cup of coffee and settle in as we start the conversation today with a question from Wilmington Patch's Mom Council:
Last week, Wilmington Patch brought you that could have reached about $70,000 in street value. in a location within about 500 feet of West Street. This was the first drug bust of this size in quite some time in town, but each week there is usually at least one drug-related incident in the police logs.
Does the discovery of marijuana highlight a bigger issue in Wilmington, or was that an isolated incident? Where do you think Wilmington ranks with towns similar in size as far as drug issues?
We welcome you to answer the question or ask the Moms Council another parenting question in the comments section.
