Raising Kids, Naturally!


Raising Kids Naturally is Silver and Gold magazine's area for happy parenting and grandparenting, where we share insightful, educational articles, handy tips and tricks, delicious family-friendly recipes, and "did you know" bits that are perfect for busy parents and grandparents.

We believe that the saying is true: "It takes a village to raise a child," and we think it takes parents, grandparents, friends and neighbours, to raise a healthy and happy child and stay sane in this crazy world... Don't you?

Join the Raising Kids Naturally community of families who are learning from our lessons, and also helping each other with their own tried and true life lessons!  You're not alone in this parenting thing... we're here to figure things out... together!
