Parenting Trends Of 2017

Trends are always changing, and parenting trends are no exception. More people will have wood-themed nurseries. Gender neutral nurseries are also growing in popularity. Family dinners will also make a comeback. However, because many families do not have a lot of time to prepare meals, more people will be opting to use instant pots. These pots are designed to speed up cooking time by anywhere from two to 10 minutes.


More parents are also getting educated about the dangers of sugar consumption. Many researchers have stated that this current generation may have a shorter lifespan than their parents. This is due to factors such as poor diet and sedentary living.


Cutting out the sugar is one of the things that parents and children can do to make themselves healthier. Sugar is linked to obesity, diabetes as well as many other chronic health conditions. It can be hard to eliminate sugar because it is hidden in many foods, such as deli meat, sauces and dressing. That is why it is important for parents to read the food labels before buying anything.


Many kids today are spending too much time in front of the screen. Schools are also overscheduling children. However, old-fashioned play will likely make a comeback this year. Many experts believe that playing is children’s most important job. It helps children develop problem-solving and self-regulating skills. There are many indoor and outdoor activities that children can enjoy.


Furthermore, names that start with a L will likely be popular this year. This includes names like Liam, Lucas and Luna.
