Welcome to the Parenting Advice website
Welcome to the Parenting Advice website. Our site has been created with the intention of providing a one stop portal for Parenting Advice, where interested parties can find all the information and links they need. An excellent way to learn the basic parenting skills is for prospective parents to attend antenatal classes. Doing so will help you to deal with a variety of situations that you will face, and give you a heads up about all the issues you can expect, and can be especially useful for people who do not have friends or family who have been there and done it to advise you along the way. It can be a genuine shock to the system to suddenly find yourself at home with a newly born baby that is totally dependent upon you for everything, and sharing your fears and questions with other local couples who are in the same position can be a lifesaver. It can help you to create a new support network as well as a new circle of friends who can help you through the crazy ride that is being a parent.
It may also occur that your friends, or more likely your relatives, will actually offer you unwanted or unhelpful parenting advice. Everybody has their own ideas, but when you are trying your hardest to do the right thing by your child and you have a particular relative who, consciously or unconsciously, is repeatedly putting you down by always telling you to do things another way, it can really get to you. You should learn to pick and choose what works for you, and trust that you really are doing the best you can for your baby. We are always happy to hear your views and feedback regarding the Parenting Advice website.
