I used to take part in Izziwizzi Kids Playfest which introduced me to lots of Parent bloggers, then I thought why not join in with making my own blog too!

What is your top parenting tip to share with our readers? Can be on any topic for little ones :-) (under 8s):

To remember that they grow up so quickly so make the most of their early years, and pick your battles.

Can you share a parenting advice post with us from your blog too; your favourite one? Why do you like this post? Please include the link for us.:

My favourite is my post on Helping your child’s speech and language, as it’s a topic close to my heart and I have been told the post is useful, so if it helps anyone even a little bit – then I am happy!

Who’s your favourite parent blogger at the moment and why? Please include a link to their blog home page.:

It’s hard to pick just one favourite! But I will go with Jenny from as her blog has a great mix of recipes, days out, reviews and funny posts which I always enjoy reading.


Helen is a mum to two, social media consultant, and website editor; and this site is (we think) the only Social Enterprise parenting magazine! 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 has reach of over 1.1million across social and the site. The blog works with big family brands (including travel) to help promote their services, as well as offering free resources to parents of kids under 10. It gives 51%+ profits to Reverence for Life, who fund a number of important initiatives in Africa, including bringing running water and basic equipment to a school in Tanzania. Helen has worked as a digital marketing consultant (IDM qualified) with various organisations, including Channel Mum, Truprint, Talk to Mums, and Micro Scooters. She loves to be creative in the brand campaigns she works on. Get in touch TODAY!
