Since I’m not a parenting expert, (but that’s not stopped me from giving advice on parenting), I am always on the look out for people in the know on kids issues and health. Everyone has different opinions on how to raise and foster children’s’ development and I find that when I come in contact with someone knowledgeable and savvy on kids issues, I take in the information like a sponge. But sometimes it’s hard for me to find an expert that I like or can believe in.
Dr. Tanya is not one of those people. Not only is she a pediatrician and but she’s an author and a mom. Her advice and knowledge of kids health is refreshing and something that I can apply to my own family. While many of Dr. Tanya’s blog posts also appear at WebMD, I love how she actually replies back to comments that she receives, many parent experts don’t take the time to do that!
I’ve enjoyed reading posts on everything from eczema (something Peanut has been plagued with – good to know he can outgrow it!), to summer injuries and preparing our kids for cyberspace (you know how I am about the tweens and kids online). It’s hard for me to find information that I like because my kids are older and many experts cater to new moms only; Dr. Tanya offers me information that I can actually apply to my four kids and their different range in ages.
In our day and age of parenting it’s nice to see that some medical and parenting advice is never outdated and regardless of what I think I know about something, Dr. Tanya shows me that there is always more to learn (like I had no clue Peanut could outgrow the eczema! I thought we were stuck with it for life). And if I ever feel like I have a burning parenting or medical question I can ask Dr. Tanya and she’ll answer my question on her blog (I love answering my own readers’ questions too).
