Positive Parenting Tips
When I was pregnant with my first daughter, I started reading pregnancy and parenting books. But I hated them all!
What really bugged me was that many of the "experts" prescribed a one-size-fits-all solution for parenting issues. And we all know that's not how it works in real life!
I started The Soccer Mom Blog as a source of encouragement for my fellow moms and to share ideas that worked for me. I figured that it would just be my family reading the blog, but little by little, total strangers started reaching out.
I love what I do, and I'm far from being an "expert" myself! I'm just a mom that's kind of winging it and half the time I feel like I'm figuring things out as I go.
But when a reader emails to let me know that a post I wrote truly made a difference in their life, well THAT makes it all worthwhile and is the most rewarding part of this whole blogging thing!
This section contains all of my parenting posts from the very beginning of the blog and new ones still being published. We cover it ALL -- from babies, to toddlers, tweens, and beyond!
I do my best to keep it real -- I hope that you find something here that helps you as much as it did our family!
