The NYMetroParents blogroll features the best blogs in the parenting world, from New York and beyond. Here's a closer look at why we love these mom bloggers and dad bloggers and how they're shaping the web for parenting today.
Blogging From: Manhattan
Rosie Stuart’s daily posts on Lollitot cover a wide range of mommy news stories from around the city. She also gives her own advice on a few topics, like the difficult process that is the Kindergarten application and even meticulously reviews public and private schools in New York City.
Her hard work pays off:She has live-blogged on the new Katie Couric show as well as appeared live on the Anderson Cooper show. Rosie isn’t afraid to talk about big mom issues like potty training in public, and voices her opinion that moms should not be in a competitive nature with each other, but should rather help each other through such a rewarding, yet difficult job.
To support her opinion, Rosie’s posts offer advice for mother’s raising children in the Big Apple. She warns moms away from playgrounds infested with rats and promotes the practice of breastfeeding. Her blog describes a tight-knit community looking out for each other. Her objective is to make a dent in the Big Apple parenting community and to provide her own stories of the “dos” and “don’ts” of child-raising in New York City. She also provides helpful links for parents on how to find a good nanny. — Gordon Rago
