What started out as a “no fluff” blog filled with fresh and honest parenting information and insight has now turned into a go-to site for parenting advice, tools, resources and tips. Written for and by parents, TheGuiltyParent.com is filled with stories that make you laugh, cry and think about what it’s like to be a mom or dad in today’s world. Says its founder Nichole Smith, “We’re not sugar coating parenting for you like other parenting resources do. We’re exploring parenting for all it’s worth and bringing you the best of what every mom and dad today need to know and need to have in order to make their job as easy and as guilt free as possible.” Visitors can meet other parents and learn from their experiences as well as find products and information needed to take the stress out of bringing up today’s kids. “We’re working towards strengthening your family; everything from your child’s education to the time you spend with them,” says Smith. Smith is the chief mom officer and community development manager at BabySpot.com and was named one of the “50 Most Powerful and Influential Women in Social Media” for 2008. The Guilty Parent is updated regularly through parent submissions and contributors and currently has a couple of advertising packages available for both button and banner ads. In addition, merchants can submit a request to have a new product reviewed or possibly used as a giveaway for site visitors.
