What is Little Helper?
Little Helper is a service to help the Chief Household Officer (mom!) and her family better coordinate with their most trusted support resources. We help families build what we call “essential networks”. These networks are made up of the small set of people you’d trust to help in your home with your most precious assets—your children. Our goal is to make it easy for these micro-community members to efficiently get and give support from trusted resources by streamlining the request process.First, set up an account and then add the emails for those people that are your go-to contacts when you have a need. Rather than sending a personal message to someone, you can send out your request to your network and it gives your helpers the option to respond if they are available.
Example....."I have a doctor's appointment on Tuesday, would anyone be willing to watch my kids from 9-11am?" or "Mommy and Daddy are in need of a date night, anyone up for a swap?"
A few events that Little Helper can make easier:
o Date nights
o Sudden emergencies
o Special events
o Scheduled childcare
o Household events
This program can also be used for non-kid related requests such as dog-walking, house-sitting, barter offers + much more!
At this point, Little Helper is completely separate from any social media sites. They want to ensure that people keep the feeling of trust and safety and that their requests are kept private. There is also the Give & Get aspect. If you build your network, share your relationships and offer to help others, you increase the likelihood of getting help when you need it!
Step 1: Build Your Essential Network
Step 2: Ask for Help
Step 3: Find Ways to Help Others
I'm truly excited about using this tool with my friends around me! Not only to get a hand when I need it, but so I can help out my sweet friends when they have a need as well. So often we don't even know that someone is in need of some help. I hope this system will give moms the freedom to ask when they need it, knowing that we can reciprocate to those around us as well!
