So I really want this site to be a celebration of parenting, a celebration of all the joy and love our kids bring us. Yes, we need to talk about the hard stuff too, but let’s talk about it in a way that encourages us to be better parents and better people.
I want to make it really clear that I’m NOT an expert on parenting and I’m not trying to give advice. I don’t have any formal qualifications and I’m well aware that there are plenty of people with far more experience and knowledge than me. I certainly don’t want to advocate any ‘style’ of parenting over any other. So why am I writing a blog and talking on the radio about parenting? I guess because I want to use my experiences as a way to get a conversation started, a conversation that will inspire us to be better parents, to cherish our children and to appreciate what we have. My two children didn’t come easily for me, so there’s not a day goes by that I don’t look at them and realise how blessed I am to have them in my life. Yes it’s hard sometimes, but it’s such a privilege as well.
I hope this site can help you feel positive about your parenting too, and that we can learn from each others’ experiences.
