Being a parent is a role that comes with a lot of ‘on-the-job’ learning, and there’s a whole host of things you have no idea how to deal with until they come up.
Everyone’s parenting experience is different, but it can be difficult to get others to understand that. I’ve written a couple of blogs now on experiences I’ve had as a Mum and I’ve shared them amongst others in order to raise some awareness on individual circumstances my family have been in, but I’m keen to use this platform and spread the word on more than just my story.
What do you want people to understand about your parenting journey and how it differs from others? I’m looking for guest bloggers to write under the heading “The Shit No One Tells You About…” to get across their parenting points and help to educate others on the myriad of issues and frustrations parents face. Think “The Shit No One Tells You About Being a Single Parent”, “The Shit No One Tells You About Parenting a Disabled Child”, “The Shit No One Tells You About Weaning a Baby with Allergies” and “The Shit No One Tells You About Having a C-Section”.
Whatever your story, I wanna hear it. This will ideally in a blog with easy headings to separate out points (similar to mine on prematurity) but I can help you with writing/formatting/getting your message across. Honesty is encouraged: no matter how brutal. I’ll promote and share all of the blogs on my social media channels, and publish them here on Eat Weep Mum Repeat.
If you’d like to chat and share your story to be featured, email me at eatweepmumrepeatAToutlookDOTCOM, or slide into my DMs on Instagram. Let’s get down, dirty and direct about all the shit that affects you.
