Why we Love Flair’s Mommy Corner & a familiar face

Accesseed via the web
A few months ago, The Gleaner’s Flair Magazine started a series called “Mommy Corner”. The mommy corner instead of doing a personality feature on mums took a very welcomed approach and zoomed in on parental advice on a wide variety of topics. In fact its introduction reads: Unlike buying a new car or an appliance, motherhood does not come with a manual. It is a journey travelled by trial and error and words from the wise – those who have been there before. So let’s take the journey together in the ‘Flair Magazine’s’ new feature – Mommy Corner. Each week, mothers share the ‘tricks’ of the trade – what works for them and what doesn’t.

I found myself smiling and nodding as I read some of the entries and even making a mental note to try some of the strategies outlined by the featured moms. Admittedly, some were downright hilarious, others more serious and still others offering the opportunity to reflect on the strategy highlighted.

In the end, we are happy the Flair team took this approach and we look forward to other “In their own words” mommying tips.

Have a look at some of the featured moms and the topics they spoke about.

P.S. Look a little closer in, you will find your Jmommies editor speaking about the important topic of pulling the Balancing Act and Bonding Time for the Busy Mom

1. The Naughty Corner

2. Socializing Your Toddler

3. The Homework Drama

4. Making the Mommy and Me time

We love the variety of topics thus far and look forward to more! After all, we always love hearing from other moms about tips and tricks that can complement our own.
