    Simple Child Rearing Tips
    melbournefreelancer posted:
    Parenting has changed considerably since the time we were last biking down the countryside. These days the topic is inundated with, what I would term, e-wisdom, that tends to lean towards tech-oriented solutions, tips, and ideas. However, I do believe there are the simple tips that are overlooked, forgotten, or given the go-by in this frenzy to get with it and get techy. A very inane instance would be how freshly cooked home food has given way to processed foods or close, lifelong friendships have given way to the anonymity of social network "friends". I feel these forgotten tips have a lot to offer where healthy, happy childrearing is concerned, don't you think?
