Parenting may be the best job in the world, but it can also be the most difficult. No matter how you look at it, there simply is no perfect handbook that will point the way for parents. We do have our own parents, our friends, and even our grandparents, who will give advice – solicited or unsolicited – but at the end of the day, each situation is different, each child unique.
The great thing is that there are many choices when it comes to picking up advice and insights that will help in being an effective parent. One such resource is The Parenting Patch, a Parenting Community which serves as a one-stop shop for parents of all ages.
The site has tons of information that can make your life as a parent easier to deal with. You can pick up useful advice on nurseries, baby equipment, cord clamping and other health issues, breast feeding, and even the “right” number of children! You can also check out other sections such as recipes, and if you like interacting with other parents, there is a forum as well.
