Parenting At Home will be a blog for parents, mothers, fathers, husbands, and wives. In other words it will be about family related topics such as raising children, marriage, in-laws, and finances. We will also write about traveling, health, exercise, hobbies, cooking, and recipes because these topics are all family related.
About the Author
The main author of this blog is Dallan. He grew up in a family of eight children. He and his wife have a one-year-old son. Dallan has an undergraduate degree in Marriage Family and Human Development. Currently he is working on an MBA which he will finish in August of this year. Dallan loves spending time with his family both extended and immediate, running ultramarathons, traveling, and being in the outdoors.
When Dallan was in his early teens he remembers his mother saying to him, “this is my first time being a parent and I’m trying to figure it out.” Dallan went on to say that it was at this point in his life that he realized that his mother had not always been a mom. She was trying to figure out how to be a good parent. Dallan says now that he has a son, he understands a little bit better what his mom was saying that day. Dallan adds that his mom definitely figured out how to be a great mom. It is a joy to see her now being a grandmother to his one year old son.
Parenting At Home’s Purpose
Here at Parenting At Home we believe all parents have or are having the same experiences as Dallan’s mom – trying to figure out how to be a good parent. The purpose of this blog is to provide ideas and thoughts on how to wade through the important and tough job of being a parent. We would love to hear your own experiences with being a first time parent and what has worked for you.
What was your experience with being a first time parent to a new born? A teenager?
