The Baby Whisperer and other Real Joy of Parenting Stories

Hi Ladies and Gentlemen
The latest issue of Mothering Matters is a bewdy (as we’d say in Australia!).

The theme is the ‘The Real Joy of Parenting’. There are a range of intelligently written stories for English-speaking parents in Switzerland.

• One writer shares the mental and emotional turmoil she went through in deciding whether to have a third child.

• A father reflects with warmth on the 22 years he’s been parenting his beloved daughter.

• There’s a humorous and helpful article about coping with frequent absences of a travelling spouse.

• The title of another of our stories, ‘A (slightly) satirical look at Parenthood’, says it all!

• A father discusses what makes parenting joyful. Is it mostly our attitude?

• Have you ever had unsolicited ‘advice’ while out with your baby? A member of our team writes of her parenting experiences ‘under scrutiny’ in Zürich, but it’s not all negative: she was privileged with advice from the ‘baby whisperer’!

• Robyn Mueller, a well-known and well-regarded member of our expatriate community has recently passed away. We have an obituary for Robyn in this issue, written by someone who knew her for many years.

Our regular columns:
• two ideas for spring-themed craft
• La Leche League shares how -to knowledge
• ‘In the Kitchen’ has a delicious recipe for blueberry and lemon cobbler.
• ‘Groups and Resources’ pages
• ‘Guide of Things to Do in Basel and Zürich’ tells of fun family things to do for the coming months.
