Why Bright by Text?

Kids doesn't come with instructions, but we're here to help fill that gap. At Bright By Text, we're all about delivering timely advice straight to your phone. From handling trantrums to mastering nap times, we've got tips for all aspects of caring for kids.

Our messages are 100% free, with no spam (ever). Our tips come from trusted partners like PBS KIDS. 

Signing up is simple.

We only ask for your child's birth date and zip code. That way, you'll get messages timed to their exact age and information about events and resources near you. We will never share your info! Bright by Text is completely free, but message and data rates may apply.

Because kids don't come with instructions.
