Write for Natural Family Online magazine
Online magazine is not just another natural parenting magazine.
We’re a bridge for mainstream families to natural
parenting, making natural approaches to family living accessible
to parents who don’t consider themselves to be “crunchy
granola.” Natural Family Online shows parents how easy and
natural it is to fold simple, holistic practices into their daily
family lives -- yet we provide enough depth for self-proclaimed “natural
parents” as well.
Online is currently seeking articles focusing on tips, tools
and strategies for
a daily basis. Our readers want to know what makes natural parenting
practices beneficial, why they should use them and how they can
add natural parenting to their own family lives. We are not looking
for “warm fuzzy” articles about breastfeeding, cosleeping
or other AP/natural parenting practices. Think tips and tools,
and you will be on the right track.
Topics we cover include:
· Breastfeeding (emphasizing extended BF, tandem BF and
so on; not BF how-to’s)
· Co-sleeping, the family bed and night-time parenting
· Nutrition and healthy cooking, including vegan and vegetarian diets
and organic and whole foods
· Attachment parenting
· Natural pregnancy and childbirth
· Educational alternatives, including homeschooling and unschooling
· Health care alternatives (emphasizing child and family health issues)
· Cloth diapering and elimination communication/infant potty training
· Ecological practices, including recycling and food gardening
