Parenting Bloggers of Tomorrow: San Francisco
Parenting looks different with every child and every mother. This fact can leave you feeling isolated sometimes. But while every journey through motherhood is different, there are so many others out there going through something similar. Whether your child is a twin, has Autism, is homeschooled, stresses you out and/or makes you jump for joy as they explore the world around them, you’ll be able to find a San Francisco mom blogger who is right there with you.
When you have a child, your life changes completely. When your child is diagnosed with a disability, your life changes even more. That’s what Malika Yasmin found out when her son was diagnosed with autism. The diagnosis led her on a mission to take extra care of everyone’s health, and she now shares healthy recipes and family adventures both on her blog and her Instagram account. Recent content includes the transition from being a mother to two to a mother of three and celebrating milestones--whether that be Eid or the first date night since baby was born--with her husband.
