Moms Talk is a feature on Nyack-Piermont Patch that reaches out to moms and families. We invite you and your circle of friends to help build a community of support for mothers and their families right here in Piermont and the Nyacks.
Moms Talk will also be the place to drop in for a talk about the latest parenting hot topic. So grab a cup of coffee and settle in as we start the conversation today about standardized testing season:
