When we started in 2003, you could count parenting websites on one hand!

These days, WhereParentsTalk.com is part of a plethora of parenting-focused websites. We’ve watched the parenting space explode online — some sites have endured, others more short-lived.

Through it all, we have remained true to our roots focused on providing proven tips and advice for parents by parents.

After all, only parents can understand what another parent is going through.

Lianne Castelino - Where Parents Talk parenting websites

Founder, Content Developer and Video Producer

Lianne is a wife and mom of three (two in their 20’s) and a teen.

The seed for a parenting-focused business was planted in her mind while taking pre-natal classes with her first child, in 1996.

Back then, there were few Canadian-produced video resources for parents.

Her passion stoked the entrepreneurial flame and led to Liandrea.com, Liandrea Productions Inc., and WhereParentsTalk.com.

A broadcast journalist, public relations and communications professional, she is deeply committed to making life a little easier for other parents — by providing a space for moms and dads to share their golden nuggets of wisdom with each other.

The parenting landscape has changed markedly since 1996. Neighbourhoods, communities, distance from and proximity to family, the internet, technology — and more.

One thing remains constant, however: it takes a village to raise a child.

Overhaul and relaunch of WhereParentsTalk.com


Lianne flies solo. Andrea pursues other projects.


Re-brand and launch of WhereParentsTalk.com.


Lianne moves to Toronto, Ontario.
Andrea remains based in Montreal, Quebec.


Produced two award-winning DVDs. Bringing Baby Home, on newborn care and Yummy in my Tummy on starting solids, in both English and French. (This was way before YouTube and there were very few similar parenting resources available).

Authored, ‘Yummy in My Tummy’ a companion book to the DVD.

Produced corporate videos for several clients including: P&G, Danone Canada and others.


Liandrea Productions Inc., is founded by Lianne Castelino and Andrea Howick in Montreal, Quebec.
A business venture out of the basements when, “parenting” and “video” in the same breath was foreign at best.


The behind-the scenes work ensues: planning, pitching, relationship-building, securing medical experts, researching, putting the pieces in place to produce a first how-to DVD for new and expectant parents.


Lianne Castelino noodles the idea of creating a Canadian-made educational parenting resource, during pre-natal classes with her first child.
