Parenthood is the only “job” which involves no formal training, very little background knowledge (for most of us) and the “outcome” involves the people we value most (our kids). However, most of the best parenting blogs I’ve seen also know that parenting cannot really be equated to a job, either. It is a relationship, as unique and special as your relationship with your spouse or best friend. As with any long-term relationship, it can have its ups and downs. Add to that the fact that children are still developing their social-emotional skills which makes the relationship trick at times.
These parenting blogs offer thought-provoking articles and useful hands-on tips. As a bonus, many are also based on research, which I always appreciate.
