Heroes In Parenting, May 2009

HIPButton_Manager.gif

Well hello! Did you think I forgot the Heroes In Parenting (HIP) project? Nope! Not me. Uh-uh. We’re going to try doing this monthly, and see how that goes. Oh! And please see the end for a New Development in the HIP project.

Amanda from Tumble Dry writes a beautiful post about her daughter’s transition from preschool to kindergarten.

Chris is walking through the final months of her daughter Sammie’s life. Sammie has Osteosarcoma. Please visit her CaringBridge site and leave a few words of encouragement. Sammie is a beautiful girl and her family could use all the encouragement they can get.

Diana from Of the Princess and the Pea found herself sending her daughter to school angry. Parenting is a difficult task, but Diana is approaching it with wisdom.

Have you heard of Redneck Mommy? She’s something else, let me tell ya. Her post Confessions is raw and real, and well…wow. Her strength is amazing.

Our new HIP bloggers are invited to take a badge back to their own site if they like. That’s completely optional, of course, as explained in the how it works post.

Do you know someone who’s HIP? Are you HIP? Contact me, and tell me all about it!

Here’s the New Development: We now have official HIP postcards for any person on the HIP honor roll who cares to give me their snail mail address. Is that cool or what? If you’re already HIP, e-mail me at amyl @ earnestparenting.com (you’ll have to squush that together to make it work). If you want to nominate someone who doesn’t have an online presence, this is an easier way to acknowledge their HIPness. Online folks may participate as well, of course. I’ll try to put up a pic of a postcard soon so you can see it.

Earnest Parenting: celebrating heroes as much as possible.

The editor-in-chief of Earnest Parenting, Amy is the mother of two sets of twin boys. Yes, they drive her crazy, but they also make her laugh occasionally. Amy enjoys writing, quilting, reading, and working on her burgeoning cyber empire.

    What a wonderful project! I’m sure the HIPs will be really proud to be considered in their parenting fields 🙂 They will serve as an inspiration to all the rest out there and motivate everyone to be heroes in their own ways. Thanks!
