I bet you’d be surprised if you really stopped to think about what an “expert” you are as a parent. Remember the time you “cured” your toddler of her nightly bad dreams, helped your 8-year-old (finally) eat veggies, or got your 4th grader to do his homework without (too much) grumbling? Believe it or not, there are hundreds, maybe thousands of parents out there who are dealing with a parenting riddle that you’ve already solved!
Come share your expert experience by answering a question in the JustAsk forum. We think you’ll love how it feels to help out another mom or dad, but just in case you need a little extra incentive, how’d you like to win a box of handpicked, age-appropriate games and books for your kiddos? Now’s your chance!
All you have to do is share your parenting expertise by answering one or more questions in JustAsk, Education.com’s community question and answer forum! Education.com has tons of prizes to give away, and over the next few weeks, we’ll be hosting several competitions. There’s no need to be a doctor or educational expert—we’re just looking for helpful input from Education.com members. Whether you’re a parent, teacher, big brother or sister, nanny, or grandparent, our community wants to hear from you!
Keep your eye out for the first JustAsk Contest, hosted via Twitter! Entering the contest is simple: Starting Monday, September 13, just answer a question in JustAsk, and then tweet @JustAskEdu with a link to the question you’ve responded to. A winner will be chosen at random, and contacted to help us customize the fun family prize. Games and books will be hand-selected by our team of “Toy Experts” to suit the age of the winner’s child.
The best part? Our Twitter contest will last a full week, and members have the chance to enter the competition once a day, for the entire week. The more you participate, the better your chances of winning! However, we do request that you don’t create multiple handle names in order to participate more than once per day, or post the same tweet multiple times.
1, 2, 3… Start answering! See guidelines below for contest rules and eligibility guidelines.
How to enter:
To enter the Twitter contest, visit: www.education.com/answers/, answer one or more questions, and then tweet the link to the question you’ve answered. Make sure to mention @JustAskEdu. You will be automatically entered into the contest, and we will contact you via Twitter if you’ve been randomly selected as the winner.
Note: Please also make sure you’re following @JustAskEdu on Twitter, so that we’re able to direct message you if you’re the winner!
Only legal U.S. residents who are fourteen (14) years of age or older at the time of entry may participate in the Contest. This Contest is void where prohibited by law, or where the registration requirements of any state of local jurisdiction have not been complied with.
Only one entry per household, per day, will be accepted. Any attempt to submit more than one entry per household, per day, using multiple email addresses or any other means, will result in the disqualification of all entries.

All participants who have completed the entry requirements defined in the How to Enter section above will be entered into a drawing for a small collection of games and books, determined by their children’s age level. The approximate retail value of each prize will be approximately $50. Winners will be selected at random among all eligible participants. Odds of winning any prize depend on the number of eligible entries received.
