Encouraging Heroes. You can be one too.

Heroes In Parenting

Welcome to the new and improved HIP (Heroes In Parenting) program here at Earnest Parenting! Long-time readers may recall the mission to celebrate parents who are being heroes every day. :

What do I mean by “parenting hero”? It doesn’t matter whether they’re in a unique circumstance or doing the ordinary thing day to day. What matters is they’re getting something right with their kids. Maybe a mom is advocating for the services her child needs in school. Or a dad is coaching a sports team. Then there’s the mom getting up early to pack healthy lunches for the kids at school. Or the parents who save up for a year just to take the family on a vacation together.

With all the depressing news we’re bombarded with, won’t it be nice to have a place to remember the encouraging stories? That’s what we’re doing!

The Plan

Okay, so here’s the plan. You think of someone who is HIP. Then you nominate them and I write them up in a blog post. They’ll also be highlighted in the monthly newsletter, and included in the Heroes Gallery.

If you’ve been nominated, please take a badge back to your site and enjoy. Or if you want to choose one and give to someone, that’s great too.
