When it comes to raising children, Australia is a great place to be! The weather is (for the most part) nice enough to guarantee plenty of time for outdoor play. We’ve got wonderful beaches and national parks just begging to be explored. Our health care system is far more family-friendly than many other countries and we’ve got incredible schools where every child has a chance of success.
Being a parent can be overwhelming. You’ve got every man, woman, their dogs and their dogs fleas trying to give you advice. It’s often hard to know where to turn and, when it comes to raising children, you need to know that the answers you’re being given are the right ones.
While it’s definitely true that raising children in Australia does NOT come with a manual (how great would that be?!), there are a number of places that you can reliably turn to for expert opinion and assistance. From raising toddlers to taming teenagers, Baby Hints and Tips have a strong history of helping out parents JUST LIKE YOU.
Baby Hints and Tips is a network of experts, community members, regular contributors and bloggers all working together to make this parenting ride a little bit easier.
Here’s how to make that network work for you.
