The Parent World is an open forum for people who look after children. We are an archive of questions and answers written by parents and child carers around the world. We offer advice, conversation and an opportunity for you to share your knowledge in various subject areas with others.
My husband and I used to have such an amazing relationship, but it all seemed to change slowly as each child came along. We've got three children under 7 and at first he was great with them, really attentive and helpful, he'd read them bedtime stories and make sure he played with them every night after work. But for the past year and a half I've felt like a single mother. He's changed his hours at
Is it normal for you to lose so much hair after you've had a baby? My hair is naturally thick, luckily and got even thicker and longer during pregnancy but now every time I run my hands through it more hair comes out.
When I'm in the shower it's clogging up the plug hole. It's all over the floor and my baby keeps picking it up. I can't see any bald patches and it seems to be coming fro
I'm finding my toddler extremely embarrassing at times. I know it's probably silly to say but her manners are terrible. She'll take toys from other children, she doesn't like to share. She's even taken toys from a baby!
She also won't say hello to people when they're talking to her, even relatives and friends. It's so awkward at times. I have to tell them she's really shy. I don't kn
My kids are 9,11 and 14 and they are so lazy it's unbelievable. My house looks like a tip from morning till night unless I spend all my spare time cleaning up after them. I feel like a broken record nagging at them relentlessly but it doesn't work, they're still lazy layabouts. How can I get them to DO SOMETHING?!
My sweet little grand-daughter is having a real problem making friends at school. She's painfully shy and comes across as rude at times and so for this reason the other children don't want to play with her. She really likes the other kids but said they won't play with me, bless her, it's horrible to think of her alone all day. I wish I could go to school and help her but I know she needs to do it
The Parent World was founded in 2011 with an aim to provide parents, guardians and child carer’s a place to discuss all matters child related and to provide useful information, and resources to help them make the best of their parenting experience. We are a forum for questions, answers and conversation specifically for parents and those who look after children. A place where our members can ask questions about anything, from potty training, to advice on dealing with a death in the family. Contributors include parents, parents to be, teachers, child minders, nurses and those with an interest in parenting.
Alongside our forum, we also have an events area allowing our members to list local events for free. Each event is listed under its own webpage and anyone visiting the site has access to the information without needing to sign in. We also run several competitions regularly because we know that looking after children deserves reward. Competitions include puzzles, questions and photo voting with prizes ranging from shopping vouchers, money off coupons and good old fashioned cash. As we grow, expect our prizes to grow with us so tell your friends and family about us and help spread the word.
In 2013, we began on a major overhaul of our site focusing on what our members wanted more of - advice on issues with children, family and relationships. Our site has evolved from the magazine type site that it was to the predominantly forum based site that it is now.
Our service is completely free to use. To cover our administrative costs, we rely on the revenue we receive through the advertising on our site and donations. We have made a pledge to donate a percentage of any profits we make to charities related to child care and children around the world and welcome suggestions for new charities that we can contribute to. We will be publishing more information on this as our site grows.
Our aim is to become the biggest online forum dedicated to everything parent related and with your support, we’re getting there.
