At The Parenting Blog, we know that looking after your family can be hard work. Whether you’re a mum to a newborn baby or you’ve got a handful of kids and you’re rushed off of your feet, we know what it’s like – and with our blog, we want to help you to make the right decisions and enjoy parenting.

Our mission is to provide you with valuable information, tips, and advice to take the pressure out of parenting. Of course, we can’t promise that looking after a child is always going to be easy, and we can’t do the hard work for you, but with the right support and advice, you’ll be able to make better decisions that have a positive impact on your children, reduce your stress, and help you raise kids that you can be proud of. After all, we all want what’s best for our children, whether young or old.

We’ll be speaking to parents just like you, running polls, surveys and sharing your feedback with others, and we’ll be reaching out to professionals in healthcare, education, food, technology and more to provide you with the ultimate guidebook to being a parent in today’s ever-changing times. Perhaps you’re worried that your children are spending too much time on their iPads, or maybe you think that your child is being bullied at school and you don’t know what to do – with The Parenting Blog, we can help – and if you can’t find the answers to your questions, send us a message and we’ll do our best to connect you to experts who will be able to offer assistance.

Oh, and if you’re a passionate blogger or full-time parent and want to share your own parenting tips, run a column, document your children’s progress and development, or simply become a part of our ever-growing Parenting Blog community, we’d love to hear from you. We’re looking for bloggers and writers who can join the team on a voluntary basis – and whilst we can’t offer you a monetary reward or a night off from looking after your kids, you will be able to benefit from our brilliant PR contacts and get freebies like food, books, clothing, days out and technology to use and review for us, so it makes signing up worthwhile. Just drop us an email to learn more.

Whatever your reason for being here, we thank you for checking out our blog, ask you to follow us on Twitter using @ParentingBlogUK, and hope you’ll come back soon for more!
