Being a foster/adoptive mom for seven years has brought with it many successes but also many challenges. I learned at a young age to try my best to find humor in life’s struggles in order to survive.
With a family of seven and children who all have their own very strong personalities, life gives me endless material to work with and laugh about.
I share my stories in the hopes that there are others out there that can relate to our family’s struggles and find humor in their own.
The key to my site, is to give people a chance to take a break in their day. I try to keep my posts at a reasonable length, and the content can vary between a poem that I wrote, to NASA articles.
My blog is about things that interest me, focusing on writing, geek culture, astronomy and once in a while, something on parenting. I’ve made a lot of changes since I began in April 2016, deciding on what I wanted to cover, how often I wanted to post, and whether to have a logo or not. I scrapped my logo a little while ago, and only post on Wednesdays and Fridays now.
I’m what you would call an introverted extrovert. While I love to meet new people, I’m generally shy. I began my site to help build my confidence, and to also get back to writing, something that I had stopped doing a long time ago. In this “journey of self-discovery”, I’ve made new friends, have become more confident in myself, and returned to writing. While the writing began with NaNoWriMo, and the goal was to write a novel, I’ve found that poetry is more my thing. Blogging has given me the chance to share my work, as well as getting the “job” of writing dark poetry for a horror site (http://www.theboldmom.com/). I’m a “mature” Library Tech student and now work at a rural library, so, between that, this site, and a fantastic family, I guess that I can say that I’m living my dream life!

We are a mother-daughter duo, reviewing many genres from romance to mystery to kid literature. We have a passion for promoting Indie authors and giving children the chance to fall in love with reading. You could say we are just two crazy book nerds on the search for our next favorite book!
This is the third book blog I have created since 2013, but the others just didn’t feel right. In late spring of 2017, I came up with Ginger Mom and the Kindle Quest (because I thought the title sounded vaguely like an Indiana Jones movie, and I am a proud ginger). Then, in July of 2017, my mom (who fueled my love for books as a child) decided to join me on my blogging adventure. Since then, it has brought us closer than I could have imagined and has been an exciting ride. Our connection to reading and sharing this journey has inspired us to do whatever we can to promote Indie authors and help get our little ones reading.
The Children’s Happiness Guide is the blog created as support for parents. But this blog gives many interesting facts and useful advice to everyone who wants to increase knowledge about children. You can read about children’s development, nutrition, activities, learning and many other issues about childhood, parenting and teaching here.
We work very hard to improve this blog planning many more articles and events. Therefore, follow us and we are sure that you will enjoy our work that is dedicated to children by spreading knowledge and exchanging experience about them.
What inspired me to start this blog?
When I became a mother of a boy, I met many problems about raising and care. My pedagogical studies and long-term work with children aren’t enough to fight with everyday parental problems. As a newborn mom, I need experience too. That motivated me to explore and learn much more. Looking for solutions to problems that I had, I come to an idea to make a blog where parents would share knowledge and support each other. I admit I am not the first with such idea. There are a lot of blogs about parenting and children but many of them aren’t based on expertise or real experience. They just make confusions between parents. So, my idea is to create a blog which would unite experience and expertise and solve many confusions and myths about raising and care children.
Sharing my idea with associates and friends I got the huge support to realize that. And, I didn’t get the support only, but the huge help in creating a website, its design and exploring contents for posts as well. On this way, I come from my idea to a team of pediatrics, psychologists, teachers and many others who work with me on the realization of my idea. We are connected by love towards children and desire for the righteous world in which every child will be loved, be smiled, encouraged and happy.
If you have the same love and desire, enjoy us. Support us as we want to support you. Follow us, read our articles, share those and give us comments and suggestions. If you have some problems or doubts about parenting or teaching, contact us. We will be pleased to help you.
