PediMom SubmissionsThank you for your interest in contributing to PediMom.com. I truly believe that we can learn so much from those willing to share their stories. Thank you for being willing to share a part of yourself and welcome to our village!

Please use the form below to submit your article or story to PediMom.com. A description of the website sections from which to choose is as follows:

Kids Speak:

Kids, I want to hear what you have to say about the tough stuff! I want EVERYONE to hear what you have to say! YOU can teach us adults more than you know!

I’m looking for personal experiences and/or opinion pieces from kids of all ages about any, and all child safety topics. Have you been bullied? Cyberbullied? Have you experienced peer pressure in any way? Have you, or any of your friends, come across something inappropriate on social media, in an app, in a game, or online? Has social media affected you, or any of your friends, in a negative way? Do you have something to share that can help other kids experiencing a similar situation? Do you have something you think parents need to hear? Your voice is a voice that can make a difference. Your voice is a voice that can result in change. Your voice needs to be heard. Your piece can be any length you need it to be to get your story heard the way you want it to be heard and please do NOT worry about grammar or the like. I do not care about how good your writing skills are or how “well” you write, and neither will the readers of this website. What you have to say is what matters most, not the way it is written. You can also be assured that there will be no public commenting on your piece until vetted and approved by me. Finally, you have the option of publishing your name and age with your piece or you can choose to remain anonymous.

Parents Speak:

Being a parent is not for the faint of heart! There is so much to worry about and so much to fear when our hearts are running around outside of our bodies in the form of miniature human beings. The community parenting “village” that parents had not so long ago is unfortunately a thing of the past and we often find ourselves feeling alone on this epic journey, especially when things go wrong.

I’m looking for parents to share their experiences with any/all child safety issues. Accidents and tough situations can, and do, happen to all of us. No parent, family, or child is immune. We can learn from each other’s experiences and we can help to protect each other’s kids through education and experience. Has your child suffered an injury while playing a sport or while not wearing a helmet? Has your child found his/her way into a locked car on a hot day? Has your child been bullied or cyber-bullied? Have they been exposed to inappropriate content on their phone, through an app, or online? Have you had a drowning, or near drowning, experience? If you, your family, or your child have experienced anything that you feel other parents can learn from, I want to hear from you. Your piece can be any length you need it to be to get your story heard the way you want it to be heard and please do NOT worry about grammar or the like. I do not care about how good your writing skills are or how “well” you write, and neither will the readers of this website. What you have to say is what matters most, not the way it is written. You can also be assured that there will be no public commenting on your piece until vetted and approved by me. Finally, just as in the Kids Speak section, you have the option of publishing your name with your piece or you can choose to remain anonymous.

Professionals Speak:

I’m looking for professionals in various child-safety related fields who would like to write evidence-based articles on child safety topics. Including personal experiences and/or personal concerns for your own child/ren and/or family is highly encouraged. The target audience is the general parent population. Articles should be approximately 1000-1500 words and include references where applicable. Please include a short bio and a photo if comfortable (family photos highly encouraged).

Once your submission is received and reviewed I will get back to you.
