It’s been a while since I blogged myself, but I just wanted to make sure you’ve seen the Just One Thing series.
One of the things I frequently hear from new parents is just how much conflicting advice there is out there. At the same time, while you could build a library out of books about infant sleep, it’s hard to find information about parenting outside a particular mainstream narrative. Where are the books on parenting a child who has a disability? Or the adverts starring mums from different cultural or racial backgrounds? If you’re not in a heterosexual relationship – or not in a relationship at all – where are those stories?
The Just One Thing series aims to address these imbalances by asking a range of people from different backgrounds to tell me the one thing they’d say to new parents or parents to be.
Hope you enjoy the series. If you’d like to contribute, feel free to drop me an email.
