Best Mommy Blogs for Parents

Best Mom Blogs Part I was a fantastic success.  I wrote that article about 6 months ago and decided that it is time for a refresher! I have been emailed by, met and been reading some fantastic new blogs and stumbled across some old ones I had not known about. I also love sharing around the link love to other people online who are doing great things for youth and family.  (If you prefer to have some new listening material for traffic, also check-out Best Parenting Podcasts as well)

    Thanks for the nod. And don’t rush into a baby… I’m sorry if we make it look like too much fun — No matter how much we love our babies, being alone with them for hours on end can be lonely and even boring. Ironic.

    Hello ,
    I’m a parent of 2 boys (11 and 4) and over the last few years I have been tinkering with a Web-based positive reinforcement system to help my kids and all the kids in general to develop their sense of responsibilities. It’s worked great with my kids, so I’ve decided to open it to the public and it is free. It’s called, check it out and let me know you feedback.

    Thank you in advance.
