Parenting Wisdom

Mother and Daughter, Parenting Wisdom Jacksonville Mom

In an ideal world, parenting would come with a how-to guide for every scenario. Nonetheless, reality tells a different story. Each child is a unique soul, deserving a special kind of love, care, and attention. So, without a parenting handbook, what’s a parent to do? Enter Jacksonville Mom. Our team comprises of 40+ contributors with diverse backgrounds and family dynamics, offering a wealth of experiences and parenting wisdom.

Parenting wisdom often comes with experience, yet it can also be shared and learned. At Jacksonville Mom, we understand that every child is different, and as a parent, patience, empathy, and listening are just as crucial as setting boundaries and establishing routines. Remember, perfect parenting is a myth – it’s the small everyday moments that truly matter. Above all, parenting wisdom is the ability to adapt and evolve with your child, guiding them through each phase of their growth with love and resilience. This wisdom not only shapes the child’s life but also deeply impacts and enhances the parent’s journey.

Jacksonville Mom is here to offer parenting wisdom throughout the stages of motherhood. You will find stories about everyday events and the highs and lows that we all face as moms. We talk about the household and how to stay organized during the school year. We offer simple ways for our kids to be kind and birthing advice for new moms to be. We also tackle difficult topics on helping children cope with anxiety and tips for co-regulating when we ourselves struggle to regulate our emotions.

Parenting in Jacksonville presents its unique set of challenges and rewards. As a mom in Jacksonville, we nurture our kids in a city known for its beautiful beaches, thriving arts scene, and strong sense of community. Jacksonville’s supportive environment fosters togetherness and perseverance. Whether seeking advice or parenting wisdom, Jacksonville Mom is here to support you on your parenting journey.

My second time enduring middle school, this time as a parent, I thought I was prepared. What I wasn’t prepared for was the time machine that transported me back to 1985 to feel the exact same emotions and insecurities...
I’m sitting in this coffee shop (no free ads) huffing and grunting like Roy Kent being asked about his morning beauty routine. I’m trying to write this blog. I've deleted the last nine intros. (Holy sh*t, if I get...
In 2018, I chose to go through in vitro fertilization, or IVF as it’s commonly called. We had already lost three babies to miscarriage, and the thought of losing more was just too much to bear. So I researched...
I have been asked to write for several publications, with bylines in national magazines and media outlets, and have conducted multiple television, radio, and podcast interviews, but nothing prepares you for being invited to write for a moms' blog,...
No one is immune to the stress that comes from living life in the world today. You see, life can be busy and hectic. We wear many hats, each of which demands things from us. All the while we...
This is my first "real" summer break, and in all seriousness, I am at a loss. Daycare and my daughter's preschool were year-round, so I never had to figure out care plans for two+ months of summer. But now...
As a queer woman and mother living in Florida, this Pride month feels different than in years past. Typically, June is a time of celebration for the LGBTQ+ community. A celebration of living life as our most authentic selves...
The worst question in the world. "Mom, can I play on your phone?" It starts innocuously enough. You say yes while waiting at the doctor's office forever. While sitting at a sibling's soccer game. While waiting in line at the pharmacy....
I almost didn't write this. Type... delete. Type... delete. Wine. Type... delete. How do you write the perfect blog post about an imperfect system? A broken, understaffed, overwhelmed, and at times corrupt system. I am often asked on my other platforms, "What...
Serious question: Were our moms constantly exhausted and stretched so thin, almost all day every day? When I think back to my childhood, I picture my mom so chill, full of grace, always put together (even if only in...
One of the most beautiful parts of Florida is the Florida Keys. From Jacksonville, the first key — Key Largo — is a little less than a six-hour drive (so plan for 6-7 with traffic and kids). Since we've...
"When are you coming home, Mama?" asks my little boy. "Will you be home to read to me?" I am headed out the door for a girls' night out, much needed, but his face is so sweet. He's almost at...
