We are celebrating parenting on the 12 days running up to Christmas!

The goal of the #12daysofparenting is to add a little bit of fun and promote a positive message.  Many parents feel isolated, lonely and turn to the online world. During the 12 days bloggers and companies that support parenting and have something to say about it will be sharing their views, experiences and knowledge with you so that you no longer feel alone and perhaps give you the confidence and information you need to achieve your goals.

Each day our bloggers will be writing articles and posts around around a different theme.
