As a mom of four who grew up in a big family I often didn’t think about those who are new to being parents and have nowhere to turn. I recently started spending time on parenting forums to see what other parents are discussing and how I could help if possible. I was lucky to have been raised in a good family with a mom who was home and I learned many things about looking after children by watching and helping my mother with my four younger brothers and sister and a few of the other children my mom also watched.
While I do enjoy a few forums I found that Babies Base is a perfect one for young mothers who are worried about what they will experience all through their pregnancy and all the way up to how to deal with problems you have with rebellious teens. There is even a section on there for you to get advice about money issues or work related problems. It is nice to be able to find a community such as this where you can feel at home and everyone talks to you like you are all from the same environment and one big happy family no matter where you may live in the world. Because as we know, as parents, we often do come across many of the same issues with our fears and raising our children because while everyone is different, some things in human nature still remain the same.
If you are a new parent or know a parent who is struggling with some issues, the Babies Base forum is the perfect place to go to learn new things, find advice and find strength and comfort when you may need it while going through your troubles or dealing with your concerns.
I would like to know what you all think about parenting forums and if you have positive experiences, please leave a comment below. Until next time moms, give those babies a big hug and kiss, hold them dearly and treasure every moment you have with them. For as frustrating as parenting can be sometimes, children are so precious and funny and the best thing to live for.
See you soon.
