Parent Blogging All Stars #10: A Yummy Mummy? Really?

LouiseThis week, our Parent Blogging All Star is Louise from A Yummy Mummy? Really? Let’s find out some more about her!

Your Name:

Louise Imelda Shufflebottom

Blog Name:

A Yummy Mummy? Really?

What are the sexes and ages of your children?:

I have two girls, aged 6 (nearly 7), and 4 years old

What got you into parent blogging?:

I have always loved to write.  I originally started blogging to combine practising writing with sharing parenting tips with my friends so that they wouldn’t make the same mistakes I did.

I quickly got hooked and realised yesterday that I have been blogging for 5 years nearly now!

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

My top tip is to remember who is boss, and if you need your child to do something, like get dressed for the day, don’t ‘ask’ them, ‘tell’ them.  You can still do this with a please and a thank you, but there is a difference in the sentence and tone.  The tone will be your friend. Learn the ‘boss’ tone!

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.:

Friends have found this post, on rekindling your relationship after having children helpful.

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

I often find myself back at Red Ted Art at I love crafting, but don’t get the time to think of ideas so this website is a great one to dip into for inspiration on what to do with that spare toilet roll, egg box and straw!

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!

Sharing is caring!
