Parenting Tips Linky – Instructions not included #1: Starting School

Link up those Starting School posts and help everyone out..!



Visit our other Parenting Tips Linkies if you would like too! We are just starting out, so do be patient.

A long time ago when my son was born I struggled to understand what was happening to him – he kept being sick, really sick, like hitting the walls sick…

I didn’t know what was going on…so I turned to the internet for advice, and discovered that he might have reflux, and that I should go to the doctor for advice and help. I kept on going until they listened.

Our kids come in tiny packages, but without those dam useful instructions included! I needed advice, and bloggers seemed to be there to help. It saved me – and made me persevere, and, at this time, I didn’t even blog.

Now I know what our blogging community can do to provide help and advice, and even just to sympathise with other mums and dads going through the same parenting challenges.

I am therefore introducing the Parenting Tips Linky: Instructions not included on KiddyCharts as a permanently open resource to post links about particular parenting topics that we all need help and support with from time to time.

Come and join in – we are starting with your starting school posts


These are simple:

1. Link up your posts, or other post from other blogs and websites that helped you, that are relevant to the topic offering help to parents just like us – they can be old or newly inspired by the linky

2. Read some of the other posts, and comment on at least two of them

3. If you can, do share what you find most helpful on social media, putting in relevant hashtags so other parents can find these wonderful resources and use them from now and forever

4. For the two I like the best and find more pertinent to that week’s topic, I shall feature when we will start all over again with a new topic.


You can grab my badge for the posts that you link up if you want, but its not necessary – this is all about helping each other by sharing what we know.

This is a blog hop, so the code is below as well if you want to display it on your blog.

And just so you know, my daughter didn’t really come in a box, I promise – but she seems to like climbing into them *lost the manual*

Since giving up being a business analyst when juggling travel, work and kids proved too complicated, she founded KiddyCharts so she could be with her kids, and use those grey cells at the same time. KiddyCharts now works with big family brands to help them promote their services, as well as offering free resources to parents of kids under 10. Helen also helps other organisations with their social media and blogging strategies, including working part-time as a community manager with Truprint. She can often be found hanging about on social media, and trying to avoid stepping on the Lego her kids keep leaving lying around.
