The experiences of parenting are rarely what we planned. We often find ourselves in unexpected places with no road map or shining light. Challenges we never imagined can instantly pop into our parenting arena. Parenting is one of life’s most amazing and personal journeys that allows us to venture places never known before. In our Journey of Parenting section we celebrate the diversity of families from single parent families to same sex parents and families from culturally diverse backgrounds. We offer insight and information into parenting practice and some of the challenges faced in helping our children grow. Be inspired by the personal stories of parents who faced the loss of a child or discovered their child’s autism. Learn how to maintain a great sex life or support your children through separation and divorce. This section offers personal stories and resources to support you in handling criticism, overcoming change and being the parent you want to be.
