Parenting tips for stages and ages


Before I proceed with this post I want to recommend you read this post first – Why I don’t consider myself a parenting expert where I write amongst other things:

I often share stories or tips about parenting both in my newsletters and on the blog, but not for one minute do I consider myself a parenting expert. I do consider myself an experienced parent – I have five kids the oldest of which is now 18 so I have been at this parenting game for a while and by the nature of having a larger family, I have repeated similar stages of parenting many times over.

So when you read any of these posts on parenting below, please know that I am offering up my experience and what has worked for our family. I am not a parenting expert, GP, psychologist or counsellor.

I do find that I learn so much from other parents though, so I am happy to offer up my learnings, my mistakes and the strategies that have worked for us. Hopefully there will something you can take away that will help you with the stage or age that you are currently at with your kids.

  1. I can’t wait to get stuck in to these!

    I agree with you – I learn so much from other parents, often more than the experts. Many of the experts we have worked with have more theoretical than practical experience. So your experience with five is definitely worth tons!

    Enjoy your day Nicole!
