Hi, I am Tiffany from Raising Good People!
I started Raising Good People because of my kids. I am a mom to 4 wonderful children. 2 girls of my own and 2 step children.
They are all uniquely different from each other and each one individually tries to find fun new ways to drive mom up the wall.
I am studying to become an elementary school teacher, and have been inspired by the teachers of my past.
This is a big reason why I want to help children. While I do hope to have my own classroom one day I would also like to be helpful to other parents who have gone through some of the same challenges I have.
When I think back I wish I had started Raising Good People long ago. I am passionate about children and I can’t wait to meet you and learn about your journey as well.
Blogging is an amazing resource and I didn’t know that it could be like this. I only realized the resources available to moms more recently.
And I especially didn’t know how much my own experiences could bring value to the lives of others. While I enjoy being with my children it is so nice to have this outlet where I can interact with other like minded mothers here on Raising Good People and other Mommy sites.
Parenting, Co-Parenting, Blending and Expanding.
We have to share half of our children with another parent.
My older 2 children, Melanie who turned 11 in Jan and Joshua Jr who turned 9 in Jan, are my step kids and my middle child, Amelia who turned 7 in Dec, is my baby from a previous marriage.
Hubby and I just had our 4th child and she is our first together and turning 1 already. Our little girl Arya. The children are excited to have a younger sibling and they play with her constantly.
Creating a happy yet blended home is challenging, but the worst part of it is every weekend our older 2 children are at their mother’s home although Amelia spends no time with her bio-dad right now.
My Journey Homeward
During my pregnancy I was a SAHM due to an injury which couldn’t be treated until after my little baby girl was born. This gave me approximately 6 months of being home with my kids. I fell in love with being with the kids so much.
What I am Doing Now
I am sharing my parenting journey through difficult co-parents, blending home, educational pursuits and child sized attitudes in the hopes I will both inspire others and receive good advice.
I have also recently realized how many other mommys are dealing with the aftermath of domestic violence and the ensuing custody battles which can devastate after this kind of relationship is ended.
My previous marriage and divorce was tough for me but mostly because of how it affected my daughter and getting through the paperwork and court battles to gain the custody of your children is a tough road.
With all of this going on I am excited about the career change I am now attempting and I will be starting a chronicle here on Raising Good People of the path change soon.
