Epic Parenting

Welcome to Epic Parenting, a new kind of parenting website.  If you’re here, it’s because you either have, or want to have kids.  Chances are, you also want to do what’s best for them, and maybe you find yourself overwhelmed at the amount of information, the number of choices, and the passionate discourse surrounding those choices.  If so, go grab some snacks, because you’re right where you need to be.

Epic parenting isn’t a philosophy.  It’s not a how-to, or a you-should.  It’s a resource site, created by, and maintained by parents who’ve been where you are.  Our staff is diverse, and we bring a broad range of experience to the table.  So if you’re looking for a place to hear from real people, parenting real kids, this is your spot.  If you want a tidy to-do list that will turn you into a perfect parent, well, you’ll have to let us know when you find it.

We make mistakes.  We’re imperfect, but we love our kids completely, and we strive to do the best we can, with what we have.  What we hope to give to you, dear reader, are the fruits of mistakes we’ve made, lessons we’ve learned, and the million simple joys we carry with us, just by virtue of being a parent.

We update our content as regularly as a bunch of sleep-deprived parents can, so check back often, or subscribe to our RSS feed. We also have a community forum, where you can hang out with other parents who are on this epic journey, of bringing a tiny person into the full bloom of a functional, well-adjusted adult.  Come to the Epic side.  We have cookies!
