Help in Parenting

It’s easy to lose yourself in the day to day challenges of parenting and raising children.  Help in parenting comes from traditional to blended families, single-parent households, and those who have children with disabilities and special needs – the role of a caregiver is one that lasts a lifetime and we praise the day to day challenges that children and their parents grow through together.

At HIP Lives, we put Help in Parenting in our top pillars as children touch all of our lives regardless if you are an actual “Parent” or not. 

We are their teachers and help shape the youth in the ways we are connected to them as they touch our lives as adults.

Check out our resources, tips, education and HIP Bloggers stories for tools and ideas that you can apply as a parent and moreover, a leader as we raise awareness and share these global messages.

These 5 cork crafts don’t require long-winded tutorials, but simply hot cocoa, a warm evening in with the little sand maybe even a glass of wine (heck, you had to have accumulated those corks somehow!)

Make sure to use enough hot glue without burning your fingers and let the kids choose their favourite or get even more creative on a girls night in and create a work of wall art to hang at the cottage.  Whatever you create, send in a pic as we would love to share the corked craft fun.  Happy times are great for health so this is not only fun but a good way to boost your wellness!
