Parents Like Us - A request for lists from Parents already part of the Parent Tribe

Gooooood morning peeps. Received more lists from parents who want to share with parents of the future! Thankyou so much to all who have sent me those lists of things they wished they had been told before they joined the Parent Tribe.
If you are a parent or do the caring role full time for children then I would love to hear from you! Could you share 10 things you learned through hard work and challenge that would have been made easier for you had you been fore-warned and fore-armed?

In vain have you acquired knowledge if you have not imparted it to others.
Deuteronomy Rabba

The book I am writing will be used as an informational tool.  We don’t know what we don’t know!  I believe that sharing our 10 things with parents to be of the future will arm them with information we wish we had been given but weren’t!  We all have something to learn and something to teach so why not share it!



Ethnic Origin (Optional): Just to ensure I am reaching a diverse portion of the population.

Occupation (optional):

Number of Children (plus ages):

The 10 things I wish I had known before becoming a parent. (These can be positive or negative…we want to concentrate on the good stuff as well as the other stuff!)If you can’t think of 10, then as many as you can think of would be great too!






















Two most important things you feel would be most useful to a new parent (or parent to be)and what you have learned (the difference knowing these two things has made to you since learning them):







Would you be happy to have your list of 10 things and name, age, ethnic origin, number of children and their ages printed at the end of the book?    

   Yes              No

If No could I print list anonymously?  

Yes              No

Would you like to add something more about parenting to be quoted alongside your list etc?




Please let me know if you are happy to be contacted again as work on the book progresses and details of how you would prefer to be contacted below.
