Opening up the glossy cover of Octobers issue of ‘at home parenting with Jo Frost’ magazine, the last thing I expected to see was my blog staring back at me featured in ’10 top parenting picks’, but there is was in all it’s shiny glory!
Now I will honestly say that before even seeing myself featured inside, the magazine impressed me. It is alot thicker than the average baby magazines, and has a glossy expensive feel to it (think pre baby magazines!). There is loads of features included inside the issue including:
- Get your fussy eater back on track
- Potty training
- Why is she crying? – Top tips for frazzled mums
- Anger management for kids
- 115 best ever baby buys inside!
- Call 999? What to do in an emergency
- Beat bedtime battles
- Yummy mummy – kiss that stubborn baby weight goodbye
- First-time worries
- What’s that rash?
- What kind of parent are you?
- Where do babies come from?
- What’s new in parenting?
But fear not, you don’t have to bundle the kids in the car and get to the shops to have a read, a FREE digital edition of the magazine is now available right here: http://www.athomemagazine.co.
The editor behind the issue says:
“Motherhood is a truly fabulous experience, but those hectic early years can also be a testing and exhausting time. It’s a cliché, but kids grow up super fast! No sooner do you get to grips with crying, feeding and sleeping, you’re faced with the ‘terrible twos’ before you know it. And then come the school years, homework and teenage angst! Meanwhile, you’re trying to hold down a job and juggle family life at the same time. If this sounds like you, then you’re in the right place. This issue is packed full of inspiration and answers to all your parenting dilemmas. Plus, there’s must-have info for the key stages of your child’s development – from baby to toddler to junior and tween. Each one comes with its own challenges – something that this month’s guest editor, Jo Frost, knows only too well. Jo’s success lies in teaching parents to give their kids a balance of loving care and clear boundaries without giving in to their every whim. As a parent, the single most important thing you can do for your kids is spend quality time with them. In doing so, you’ll create strong bonds and reinforce the true value of family.” Enjoy the issue!

and Jo Frost herself says:
“What a year it has been so far – while I have been in Los Angeles, you Brits have been celebrating like there is no tomorrow. What with the Diamond Jubilee earlier this year and the recent Olympics, missing out on the celebrations has made me feel quite homesick.
I was glued to my television during those exciting times and it was clear to see what a huge impact national events have on helping to draw families and their communities together to celebrate. And, in these financially difficult times, this can only be a good thing. Helping families is my passion and I will soon be hosting a new television programme in the US and here in the UK, that will give me the chance to work with the whole clan, not just unruly kids. It will no doubt be fascinating for us all and viewers alike. I hope with my input these struggling families will have a chance to get back on an even keel and work as one unit.
In this issue of Parenting With Jo Frost we have covered all sorts of parenting issues from cyber bullying to reading, from your baby’s milestones to spending time together… yes, that’s right… as a family! Enjoy it and have fun!”
