Your Name:

Emily Foran

Blog Name:

Family Four Fun

What are the sexes and ages of your children?:

Master E is 9, Madam 7, Cian 3 & Fifi nearly 2.

What got you into parent blogging?:

Back in 2007 whilst living in Ireland I was googling ‘how to keep chickens’ and came across a blog ‘English Mum in Ireland’ and was hooked – I read the whole thing beginning to end in one night! She had started the blog to keep family at home updated so I decided to do the same. I didn’t keep it up that time but family pestered me as to why not so just after Fifi was born I started again. Like us ‘English Mum in Ireland’ moved back home and is now the infamous ‘English Mum’.

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

Lower yourself to their level! Laugh, play, be silly and have fun. These years fly by so enjoy them as much as possible!

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

Although I don’t do much advice, in fitting with what I said above this post was the end result to a dreadfully hard and stressful week…

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

I adore Ruth at Rock’n’Roller Baby all her posts are full energy and enthusiasm it’s infectious. She is funny, honest and real and her ranting often has my laughing aloud.

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!
