Perspectives in Parenting

Perspectives in parenting, mom with special needs child coloring

Sometimes you just need to hear the ideas, thoughts, and opinions of other parents. Our Perspectives in Parenting section is focused on providing a place for you to find out what other moms are thinking and how they are handling the issues that go along with the hard job of being a parent.

There are a lot of different perspectives in parenting and New Orleans Mom is a place where these different ideas can be shared. We strive to provide not just valuable information to mothers across the Crescent City, but also ideas about how to think about the issues in their lives.

In our Perspectives in Parenting section, you’ll find lots of stories about the everyday events, problems, annoyances, and issues that we all face as moms. We talk about the household and the challenges of keeping everyone in the family working together.  We offer tips on how to recognize and reflect on the good things in our lives. We also tackle difficult topics about our society and culture

Some of our perspectives in parenting stories offer key advice on wellness. We take you through some of the challenging parts of motherhood, like how and when to use a breast pump, while also offering an amusing look at alternative uses of breastmilk

Our writers talk about important things that Moms in the Big Easy need to know, such as how to teach financial responsibility to your children or how to survive the stresses of the holiday season. 

With more than 30 contributors to New Orleans Mom, we offer our readers unique Big Easy perspectives in parenting that they won’t find anywhere else.

Who remembers the good ole days of MySpace and the original Facebook?!? Light, bright, and sometimes with a soundtrack (ahh MySpace). It was actually FUN back in the beginning. Personally, I regret some of my original posts: drunken photos,...

Choosing to work with your spouse is a big decision, I mean, obviously. My husband John and I have been working together for the past five years. I often get the question (like really frequently to be honest)… “What’s...
Yes, my child ate mushrooms. I thought I had at least 15 more years before I was faced with this parenting issue. Instead, here I was, 18 month old on hip, telling poison control, "yeah, so I think my...
Snack day ... the one day a month where you have to find a healthy snack to feed 20 small children that they will want to eat. It started simple enough 3 years ago. Back then, I was even...
Growing up, my dad was the stay-at-home parent. With a significant age difference between my parents, he was on the downhill of his career and my mom was on the uphill. He happily and graciously supported my mom’s progressing...
What is it? The enneagram is a personal growth tool that characterizes people into 9 personality types based on their key motivation, but the scope of the enneagram is so much deeper and more nuanced than that simple definition. Where did...
We’ve all heard it – the advice given to us by the “older and wiser” folks who have already gone through parenting little ones. Sometimes they offer good advice, and other times, well ... not so much. Fortunately, I’ve been...
The Power Hour I have no idea where I came across this idea of having fun while completing tasks that I actually enjoy. YouTube, a blog, Instagram … I really do not remember. I am talking about a POWER HOUR....
Naturally, on Thanksgiving, we focus on gratitude for that special day, or maybe the entire month. Our kids might learn about gratitude in school, or we may do special projects with them at home. In our family, we add...
Every day, I fail as a parent. Every day, I set expectations for myself I know I’ll never meet. Every day, I yell at my children. Every day, I am on my phone too much. Every day, I forget something important I needed...
