Today’s cool site is an awesome online parenting magazine! While I’m not a parent (unless you count my pets that are too smart for their own good), there were great tips here for me too. I found some on organizing and getting things done, as well as, some nifty crafts!
There are two places to navigate from. There is the green navigation strip near the top of the page under the logo and there’s the side menu. The green navigation strip has links to the current article “Today’s Momready” and the Archives, as well as, the About section.
The side menu has all the rest of the good stuff under Departments, including Organize, Tips, Book and Film Talk, Art Projects, Boredom Busters, Food & Health, Birthday Club, Rant, Message Board and Blog.
Organize – I can’t begin to tell you how many helpful tips I picked up from this section. Here you can find a great column called Ask Peter where folks write in and ask Peter Walsh for tips on organizing. Another nifty feature of this section is Charge It, which is where you learn to make a nifty box to hide the power strip and plugs to all the devices you need to charge up.
Tips – This is where you will get to the heart of the parenting advice. It is divided into three columns: Tips, Proceed with Caution and Tech Talk. Each one has many articles devoted to their topic. I love the tip section, because it brings to light not only issues that you have with your children, but things we do in our everyday lives as well.
For example, the article “No Complaining” not only discusses how to teach your children not to whine and complain, but to reflect on how much you do it as well, so that you can lead by example.
Book and Film Talk – Here you can find suggestions on books and films for your kids to see and read. Each month, there are books recommended for kids zero to 12 in the Book Talk articles. Check them out. They’re pretty neat!
Boredom Busters – This is another great section! Why? Well, it is filled with great ideas on how to ease your child’s boredom. This deals not only with summer boredom, but also those times when your kids are sick and have absolutely nothing to do. You will also find a review on games that your kids can play and even some you can play with them. Pretty cool, huh?!
You can also view this site in Spanish. If you like what you find here, you can also sign up to get their free daily newsletter in your e-mail Inbox. You can’t miss the bright orange Sign Up Now button, so go ahead and do that if you’d like.
Well, I think you are starting to get the idea of what this site is all about, so I’ll let you finish exploring this practical site that is going to help you and your family out so much. I just know it!
