You’ve probably heard it more times than you can count – and said a time or two yourself – kids don’t come with instructions. The best you can do is love them, try your hardest to make the tough choices that you think are right for them, and defer to those who know better than you do when you’re in over your head. Sometimes, that might be your trusted pediatrician, while other times you’ll likely find yourself turning to other parents with a few more years of experience under their belts who have successfully navigated similar challenges.
Once upon a time, you had to resort to your mother or grandmother for advice. If they didn’t know the answer, you were just out of luck. Now, the answer to virtually everything is just a click away. Whether you’re looking for someone you can relate to when you are feeling isolated and alone in your parenting journey or you need advice in a specific area, there are hundreds of parenting blogs offering sage advice (or a good laugh when you need it most) on just about every possible parenting scenario you might encounter.
We’ve rounded up 51 top-notch parenting blogs below that do just that. Kids definitely don’t come with instructional manuals, but a good parenting blog is the next best thing.
