I have read my fair share of parenting books during my time as a parent and even though I found most of them helpful in some small way, I often wished they told me more the things that nobody spoke about in relation to parenting. Those things that everyone just assumes you know as a parent but really you have no clue about until a bundle is placed in your arms and you find out the hard way and by then it all feels too late!
I am delighted to be included in a new ebook out called "Things they didn't tell you about parenting". This ebook brings together some of the best voices from around Australia’s parent blogging sphere and each of the 32 bloggers shares a unique experience about what they wished people had told them about parenting. The stories are funny, poignant, endearing, confronting, thought-provoking, loud and opinionated, quiet and thoughtful. We were asked to share what was in our heart for a great cause, so we dug deep and shared what we all wished we knew.
The ebook has been put together to raise money for Foundation 18 which exists to improve the quality of life of orphaned and underprivileged children, by providing them a safe environment in which to grow whilst educating them for a brighter future living in harmony with their environment.
The foundation was established in June 2010 by Australian humanitarian and conservationist Cate Bolt. Foundation 18 Indonesia is a non-denominational, not-for-profit, non-government organisation dedicated to the physical and emotional nourishment of children. I am honoured to be able to contribute to help raise money for such a great cause.
With a foreword by funny lady Wendy Harmer, the ebook is a great read and currently sells for $4.99. A small price to pay to help out some cherubs in need. Pop on over to http://thingstheydidnttellyou.com and pick yourself up a copy and find out what we all wished we knew before becoming a parent.
