How to earn Contribution Points

You can earn Contribution Points by engaging in various activities on the site: Writing Reviews, Posting Struggles, Sharing Theories, and Creating Guides. The more you engage, the faster you earn!

How to earn Badges

There are two types of Badges on the Parental Guidance site. Contributor Badges are earned by posting quality reviews in each topic area. Badges aren’t just awarded based on the amount of reviews you post, but also on how helpful your reviews are, so take your time and make sure your reviews really showcase the product! Special Badges are awarded a little differently. They are the Saturday-Sleep-In of the Parental Guidance site - you might not always know when you’re going to earn one, but you’ll be smiling all day when you do!

Want to become an MVP?

Our MVP program is based on overall excellence! We choose our top notch, most engaged and community-driven parents to join our MVP program on quarterly basis. There is no badge or contribution point threshold required to be selected as an MVP, but your name should be one that other parents know they can come to for quality advice and authentic reviews.

What is Contribution?

Contribution Points and Contributor Badges are definitely not the same thing. Contribution Points are what help you to earn recognition across the site. Every time you post a Review, Guide, Struggle, or Theory, you’ll be awarded with Contribution Points, showing everyone that you are an active user of that Topic on the site.

Contribution can be sorted on a Daily, Weekly, Monthly, or Overall scale - so just because you’re on top this week, doesn’t mean you’ll be on top forever! Staying active on the site will help keep your name on the Leaderboards. If you are absent on the site for too long, you will automatically be dropped from the Leaderboards.

Please don’t delete the activities which you have done to earn Contribution Points. If you delete those activities, you will lose the credit earned.

FAQ's

Can anybody post reviews, earn badges and gain contribution points?

+

Yes! Anyone can join the site. Once you’re an active member, you can start engaging across the site. Your points will start accumulating with every action you take!

What are the official hashtags for Guidance Guide and Parental Guidance?

+

We love seeing your posts on your social media channels! Tag us in your reviews on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter @GuidanceGuide, and use the hashtag #guidanceguide

What if I don't have enough product to write a review and try to earn a badge?

+

Our site is created by real parents, just like you! Anything and everything you use on a daily basis has a place here - from your coffee maker to your toothbrushes. And, it’s not all about the badges. Scroll around, and create a Guide of your Holiday wish list, post a Struggle you have, or help others by answering with your Theories. Guidance Guide has something for everyone.

Can Contributors contact brands?

+

Like other social media sites, we are not affiliated with the process of trading products for reviews or anything associated with this. Please see our Terms & Conditions for a bunch of legal words that will support us, if somebody gets angry over a diaper bag.

Can I filter the site so I am only seeing certain topics or contributors?

+

Of course you can! This site is designed to be exactly what YOU want it to be. On any page, click the floating +. You’ll have options to create Reviews, Struggles, Guides, or filter your content by Topic or Influencer. On Parental Guidance, you are always in charge of your own experience.

I want to review a product, but it technically fits into multiple topics. Where should I put it?

+

Where would you look for it first? What do you use it most often for? Put it there! Chances are, other parents would look for it in the same space. If you really do use it for two totally different purposes, you can review it separately in both categories, but make sure you’re really reviewing it for each purpose, and not just copying and pasting the review.

I am getting a ton of notifications that I don't want. Where do I find the notification settings?

+

Head to your profile, and click edit profile on the right side of your teal banner. Desktop: click notifications, and deselect everything that you’re not desperate to know about the second it happens. Mobile: click the three lines, and then notifications, and deselect what you don’t want emails for.

What browser is preferred for the best website functionality?

+

For the optimal experience we recommend the use of Chrome, Safari, or Firefox. Don't worry Microsoft lovers... we haven't forgotten about you either. (Just takes a bit longer)

I am having trouble receiving emails from Guidance Guide.
