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.

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...
Growing up, I always wanted to be a teacher. I was the little girl who would set up her stuffed animals — or any neighborhood kids who would play along — and teach them in my pretend classroom. Of...
I just pulled up into the driveway after a 12-hour shift, and I can see my little ones sitting at the breakfast table waving at me through the kitchen window. It's their routine on the nights that I work...
Where the hell is the manual, “How to Raise Children”? At least a Dummies Guide would be helpful. And if you’re like me, I have one child and zero previous experience from an older sibling to guide me in...
Falling in love with the man of your dreams does not mean that you will fall in love with his children, or be besties with his ex-wife. Some do, and that’s wonderful! But for the rest of us, it...
Expectations were high. The time in my life focused on the all-consuming nature of motherhood was coming to a close, and as my last child walked out the front door with shower caddy and egg crate mattress pad in hand,...
You should never tell someone they are different — even if they are. Chances are, they know they are different without having to be reminded. I know I am, so why remind me? Well, the same goes for children. When...
It's me. Hi... I'm the problem, it's me. If you follow me on Instagram, you know by now that our family doesn't incentivize perfect attendance nor do we acknowledge the number of absences documented on a report card. Instead, we...
My teenager fell asleep in the car on the way home from Tampa, her head at an awkward angle against the seatbelt, her mouth slightly open. At a red light, I reached back for a stadium blanket and threw...
