Lehigh Valley Parenting blog

Those of us with children all are stumbling through the imperfect world of parenting. A new Lehigh Valley Parenting blog will delve into the joys and frustrations of navigating parenthood, the temper tantrums in crowded grocery stores, the endless debates over everything from spanking to spoiling, the crisis over carrots at the dinner table and the trials of the teenage years. The blog will connect our community of parents to share experiences and gain wisdom along the way.
