Because I Said So
When it comes to parenting issues, we know you have a lot to say. From hot parenting topics and debates around the latest breastfeeding picture that's gone viral and (brutally) honest accounts of living with a toddler, to opinion pieces on travel, food, fashion, interiors and everything in-between, we're the number one destination for discussing what really matters to parents like you.
Because I Said So, or BISS as we've affectionately named it, is a place for you to visit for all the latest topics, discussions and posts that you want to see on modern parenting. That's why we've enlisted top bloggers and experts to write on the subjects that matter the most, no matter how big or small - because when you're a parent, there's always more to say.
Our bloggers are here to give the real parent a voice. Whether it's a subject you deal with daily (getting the kids to bed, anyone?) or something a parent has some real insight into (like Tami Briesies and the reality of living with a child with Autism), Because I Said So talks about the topics that really matter. So grab a cup of tea and get scrolling!
Are you a parent blogger with something to say? We want you to be a part of BISS too. On the 1st of every month, you've got the opportunity to submit your favourite recent blog post to our linky. After two weeks, our BISS blogger panel will each hand-pick their favourite and those five selected bloggers will have the opportunity to guest blog here.
Even better, whoever drums up the most views over a week will land themselves a page in a future issue of Essentials magazine, talking about the parenting issues they're so passionate about. So what are you waiting for? Get involved now!
Join BISS, our new blogging platform, which showcases the real voice of parenting!
