Are there any good parenting internet boards left?

When I was pregnant and/or had infants, BabyCenter's boards were a lifesaver. Now that my kids are older, I'm trying to find a current version for parents of adolescents. Is Reddit a cesspool for this? I'm particularly interested in boards that have a diverse group of users and that are not on Facebook.

r/breakingmom is a really great subreddit. There is absolutely no "sanctomommy"ing tolerated, and the ladies there are lifesavers.

Do you know Mumsnet? It’s UK-based, but has an international reach. They have a Teenagers board.

Mumsnet is notorious for TERFs/transphobia, for what it's worth.

I'm a fan of the Slate podcast Mom and Dad are Fighting - they also have a facebook group. It is not separated by age but the topics are diverse in many ways. You might also like the recurring column Care and Feeding though that trends younger.
