Who'da thought? Nickelodeon not only bought GoCityKids.com last winter [$1 million, if you're keeping score at home], they've launched what the NY Times all but calls a MySpace For Parents, but what the rest of us might call a hosted message board.
ParentsConnect.com is apparently out of [private] beta, and ready for your surfing, advising, and blogging infotainment. Among the 20 or so "Host Parents" contributing content and riding herd are an unprecedented four [4!] actual dads, and at least one Daddy Types commenter, CityMama herself, Stefania Butler.
The site touts its "100 percent parent-created" content, but with giant, tasty-sized advertisers like Nissan, State Farm, and Pampers, you don't need a Nick logo to know you're at a center of corporate excellence. So why not plop your kid down in front of the TV for a few, er, a while, and surf around? Do I need to recommend a channel for you?
