Irish Mammy On The Run

Irish Mammy On The Run

Irish Mammy is a returned Irish expat now home to enjoy her home country of Ireland and raise her two young children…and hopefully make the country a better place for them while she’s there.

Irish Mammy On The Run – Why You Should Go

Irish Mammy On The Run is foremost a parenting blog. ‘Mammy’ had lived for 8 years abroad in Europe, where she met her love, got married, and had her first child. It was then that she decided to return to the home country to raise her kids (the second being welcomed in June 2009), which has proven a bit of a struggle in a nation that is experiencing serious economic difficulties.

Additionally, what Mammy found upon arrival back in Ireland is that it ranks quite low (near the bottom of 22 countries) in terms of benefits for children, which makes managing the costs of childcare and healthcare a serious burden for the average Irish family. This bred a strong urge to get involved and fight for her kids and their rights, and the blog is in large part dedicated to this cause. Mammy speaks intelligently on the subject, with the facts and figures to back her, and supports petitioning and causes to fund children’s benefits in Ireland.

Summing Up Irish Mammy On The Run

Irish Mammy is running a little less these days, but is no less busy. Her blog is a great one if you are looking to connect with fellow concerned parents around the world, and a definite destination for those in Ireland working for political change for children and families.

Attachment Parenting Blog

Blog URL:http:http://www.apparenting.com/
Category: Parenting, Personal Interests, Children

Attachment Parenting

The Attachment Parenting Blog is written by Dave Taylor, a parent who practices attachment parenting. This is a parenting style that focuses on spending extended time with your children.

Attachment Parenting Blog – Why You Should Go

Attachment parents use strategies like co-sleeping, extended breastfeeding and using slings rather than strollers to transport their babies. These strategies help ensure the maximum amount of time together between parent and child. Some of the strategies, of course, change as the child gets older, but the focus remains spending lots of time with your children and delaying the independent nature fostered by many parents. Dave Taylor has compiled a large list of resources on the blog for helping parents practice attachment parenting, and he writes regularly about his own parenting experiences.

This blog is helpful if you’re interested in practicing attachment parenting, or if you’re just exploring different parenting techniques before you have children. For those already practicing attachment parenting, this site is a great place to share experiences with other attachment parents.

Summing Up Attachment Parenting Blog

A good website to learn about the attachment parenting style to determine if it’s right for your family or to share your own parenting experiences.

One Centered Yoga Mama

A Yoga Mama Is A Rama Mama

To understand the true meaning of this blog and its title, it helps to understand the meaning of the word “rama” in the title—that meaning being essentially, “joy.” In effect, this blog is about a ‘Mama’ who has found joy through her yoga practice…joy and inspiration that she hopes to share with her readers.

A Yoga Mama Is A Rama Mama – Why You Should Go

This yoga mama, Marjie Goodman,  is one who has found many benefits and comforts in the practice of yoga; a practice, as many practitioners and even a good number of non-practitioners know, is about more than fitness or exercise (even if that is your initial motivation), and is really about a whole life of balance and positivity. This is a lifestyle that has taken firm hold in the life of this blogger—a corporate “worker bee” by day, fulfilled yoga instructor by night, and full-time mother—throughout all aspects of her life.

The blog itself is obviously about yoga, the practice, related topics of interest, and about the many benefits of it, but it is also about that holistic part of the practice, and the peripheral benefits and inspirations like positivity, appreciation, and joy, and living a life of joy and contentment.

Summing Up A Yoga Mama Is A Rama Mama

A Yoga Mama Is A Rama Mama is a place to learn and to grow, to share your own love of yoga and experiences with it, to connect and share and be inspired. The peaceful yet down-to-earth nature of this blog is inviting and relaxing. All in all, this blog is an excellent place to come to add a little (or a lot) of centering, focus, and joy to your life.

Feeding The Inner Addict

Baby Blog Addict

The first step in dealing with an addiction is in admitting you have a ‘problem’; the second is in feeding that addiction—at least if it is one as harmless and potentially beneficial as an addiction to baby blogs.

Baby Blog Addict – Why You Should Go

It seems there comes a time in every parent-to-be or new parent’s new life when baby blog addiction is almost a guaranteed thing. It’s something akin to the addiction of buying every pregnancy and baby book or magazine you can get your hands on. Only better. Baby blog addictions allow you to connect with real, live people and learn and talk and gain the support of a community of people who understand exactly what you are going through, and have a similar affinity for helping one another through this wonderful, yet stressful, phase of life.

All of this is just what the Baby Blog Addict blog was created for. Growing out of their own addiction to parenting and baby blogs, Scott and Jennifer decided to join in the fun and create a community of their own. The result is this very successful and informative blog about all things baby. You’ll find links and information for absolutely everything here with topics ranging from managing the work/family life balance to Jennifer’s personal pregnancy journal, to choosing the cutest layette ever, Dad’s diary and father’s issues, and then well beyond into the triumphs and trials of parenthood—all of that, and great giveaways, too!

Summing Up Baby Blog Addict

If you’re a baby blog addict, you’ll love this site where you can admit it loudly and proudly. If you’re not an addict yet, come along for some top information and resources from this blog, and you soon will be. Either way, this is the place for parents-to-be, young parents, and baby addicts in general to fill the void.

Adventures In Parenting

Adventures in Parenting comes to us from among the many great links on the blogroll of Freakedout Fathers. It is the parenting blog project of Katy Lee, a mother from Walnut, California, USA riding the roller coaster adventure that is parenting for more than 20 years now.

Adventures In Parenting – Why You Should Go

That’s more than 20 years of first-hand experience to share with her readers, both mothers and fathers from all around the world sharing the common goal of raising “good” kids—a challenge for sure, but one Katy Lee has risen to meet! A mother of four, both boys and girls, Katy Lee has gone through every stage of child-rearing and family life from infant to young adulthood. That’s a definite qualification for an author of a blog on parenting.

In explaining her blog, Katy Lee says,

“This site is here to talk about raising our kids to be people of compassion, integrity and character. Here you will find support for you through practical and simple advice on raising “good” kids with conservative values.
The Adventures of a parent are many – the good, the bad, and the ugly! Everything I write on this site are experiences I’ve gone through. Most of the ideas I share have been used with my own children.”

Summing Up Adventures In Parenting

Katy Lee’s Adventures in Parenting blog is a very hands-on, real-world approach to raising content children who become functional, contributing, “good” adults. Check out all that Katy Lee has to offer (including not only her blog, but podcasts and newsletters as well), and gain an ally in the fight to maintain a happy, healthy parent, child, and family relationship.
