Parent Hacks celebrates the seat-of-the-pants genius we uncover as we stumble along raising our kids.
I launched the Parent Hacks blog in 2005 to share parents’ tips, workarounds, and bits of wisdom – our hacks – so we could all benefit. At the time my kids were six and two, and I felt like I could barely keep up.
Today, my oldest is in high school. The challenges that loomed during early parenthood are mostly behind us. (Mostly.) Today, I feel more confident and relaxed, and I trust that I’ll figure things out. (Eventually.)
Do I ever feel completely sure of myself? No. I’m still making it up as I go along. But I’m doing the best I can.
And I know you are, too. — Asha Dornfest
