New year, new start, right? Ok, maybe not new but at least better, improved start. Many of us are beginning the new year with a few goals, resolutions and decisions of what we want to or plan on achieving in the 12 months that lie ahead of us. Get healthier, learn a new language, quit smoking, start exercising or be a better parent. For those of you, who have decided to try and become better parents, you have come to the right place.
Similar to last year, we have put together the best parenting blogs you should read and follow in 2017. They may offer some inspiration and maybe even help you on your way.

“Here we are in 2017 doing a Round-The-World Trip visiting Asia, Middle East, Africa, South and Central America with 3 kids under 5 years old. Our blog has saved us thousands of dollars by getting media stays at hotels and resorts, complimentary sightseeing attractions, restaurant meals, and much more. We have worked with major Tourism Boards, Hotels & Resorts, and Sightseeing Attractions around the world. In 2017, we will continue with our family travel adventure inspiring other parents to travel more with their children. If we can travel globally with 3 kids under 5, so can you! :)” -Ricky Shetty
This educative, yet funny blog written by a stay at home mom and an early years teacher Angela Milnes keeps its objective and slogan fairly straightforward; “learn through play”. Angela was born in New Zealand but is now living in the UK with her husband, daughter and a dog. Her blog definitely doesn’t lack resources; from recipes, family animals to games and ideas. She says, she loves writing this blog as it is her way of portraying honest and positive family experiences.
“The focus of our blog for 2017 is sharing inspirational ideas to educate and engage children through play.”- Angela Milnes
