 About our points system
What are points and how do I earn them?

We’re currently adding more content to our site and this section isn’t quite ready yet. Please check back over the next couple of weeks. We apologise for any inconvenience.

 

Points and status

The Parent World rewards you with points when you contribute to the site. The number of points you get depends on what contribution you make. Points do not have any monetary value but they earn members a status and position on our top contributors list. We run competitions throughout the year that reward our top contributors with real prizes (see our competitions section for more details). Points and status help give other members some confidence that you are experienced in the level of advice you offer. High contributors also have the chance to earn money as site moderators.
