The Parents Get Real Blog

In all of its work, Be Strong Families strives to keep it real.  That means telling it like it is and speaking our own truths as parents and community members.  Our Parents Get Real Blog shares multiple perspectives—foster parents, dads, parents of children with special needs, and others.  We want to bring parents’ voices and ideas together in one place to share with the world.   We’re not the experts, we’re just parents sharing our experiences as parents.  We invite you to connect and bring your comments into the fold.  We are also on the lookout for guest bloggers.  Contact if you are interested in sharing your voice.
