The impact the pandemic has had on small business owners and operators has been devastating, to say the least. As a small business ourselves, and one who works side by side with other small businesses, we felt compelled to take action.

If you are a small business, we want to use our platforms to give you a voice to our local San Francisco Bay Area community. Please head over to #MomsUnitedForCali for more information on the cross-collaborative campaign with our Californian sister sites to support small businesses in California through donations and social media.

We stand united with small, local businesses. The following is a listing of San Francisco Bay Area small businesses, many with special perks for SFBAM readers, for your consideration and support.

Learn With Less®

What do you REALLY need to help your baby learn and develop? Learn to maximize the time and energy you have with your infant and/or toddler… so you can do the big job of raising tiny humans.

I’m the (imperfect) mother of two tiny humans, a pediatric speech-language pathologist, a bestselling author, and a parent educator. I’m also the founder and host of Learn With Less.

I’ve been empowering families to feel confident they can support their infants and toddlers — with less — for over a decade now, and now I train other educators & therapists to do the same through parent education.

Since the birth of my first child in 2014, I’ve fully recognized the value of the connection between families, both in virtual and live, local settings. I believe families should be able to access support in early parenthood at every level, and I strive to provide that with the resources I create.

Proactive Parenting

As a child, I understood the pain of living with a parent who reacts. I was smacked, slapped, and spanked. After studying early childhood development and parenting in school, I thought I was prepared for parenting? Unfortunately, parenting theory didn’t prepare me for the moments when I was triggered and reacting. I wanted to use a “mindful authority” to correct behavior so I could remain calm without compromising my authority and so I could teach the skills that every child needs. That’s what Proactive Parenting .NET is all about.

Loved As You Are

My name is Eileen Grimes and I’m author of The Us Journal. The journal is the first in a series of intention-full and collaborative journals for all parents, regardless of gender, to forge wholehearted connections with their children. The Us Journal is a culmination of so many values—strong parent-child relationships, promotion of small authors, and independent publishing, to name a few, which is where the Kickstarter campaign comes in. I am working on the final stages of sending this journal out to change the world as well as partnering with a local chapter of Ronald McDonald House Charities for any donated journals from the campaign.

Having two children of my own, Liam (7) and Lily (4), I am so grateful to be going hand in hand with others in the belief that we can make the world a little more kind, connected, and loved!
