Our Story

WayToParent (WTP) was established 2017 July as a blog, from there we have grown into a media outlet that not only shares inspiring stories of families overcoming obstacles but also positive involvement in the communities helping to change one stigma at a time. We’ve created multiple platforms to help parents young and old of different cultures by creating WTP SpeakUp Podcast and WTP Lifestyle Magazine that helps raise awareness, empower and educate our audience on family/community concerns. We don’t plan on stopping anytime soon so join us as we continue on our path of making WTP one of the top resources for families everywhere.
