31 Days of Tips for Raising Boys

I have always said that raising boys is not for the weak!  For the Month of October I will be covering a different topic about raising boys.  Even after 12 years of raising boys, I definitely don’t have all the answers so I am excited to be bringing in advice from professionals in the different fields of parenting.  

Each day throughout October, come back to this page to see all of the posts listed below.  You can pin/bookmark this page so you don’t miss a day, or subscribe to our weekly newsletter and get all of the posts together at the end of the week.

Some of the topics we will be covering include:

  • Dealing with all of the energy that boys have
  • Potty training boys! (This is the most requested topic)
  • Organizing big toy sets
  • How to deal with “Boy Smell”
  • Hygiene, especially as they hit the tween/teen years
  • Rough play – When should we step in
  • Words/phrases we should stop saying to our boys
  • Connecting with our sons, especially as they get older
  • And many, many more

    Hi Kara, I’ve got two boys, 4 & 2, and am so looking forward to some inspiration. I am kind of an introverted homebody, so the noise level and the need for active play drive me bananas..

    ALWAYS looking for tips. When dealing with twin toddlers, you learn not to ever turn away from free advice. Looking forward to learning from someone with twice the experience I have…lol

      Haha…It’s amazing how much you learn from on-the-job experiences. But I definitely don’t have all the answers, like how to raise twin boys!
