Parenting can be a tough gig. I am not associated with any of the links featured below, but thought I’d gather together some resources which might come in handy if you’re in need of some help or support. There are links to organisations, charities, and other bloggers who are sharing their experiences.
This obviously isn’t an exhaustive list of topics or resources. If you know of, or have used, a resource which is missing from the list, let me know in the comments and I’ll make sure I add it.
If you can’t find what you’re looking for here, your local Family Information Service (FIS) is probably a good shout. Each local authority area has a different Family Information Service, so unfortunately I can’t list them all here. Just type “Family Information Service” and your local area into Google and you should find the contact details for yours. (NB I did work for a FIS for a couple of years when I finished university, but I’m not affiliated with them in any way.)
