On Monday we celebrate this warm North American summer by talking about vacations! Angela Y. in California talks about a special kind of vacation shared with extended family spanning multiple generations.
On Tuesday, we continue to talk travel with Kristen Kolb, who recently relocated from Switzerland to the United States. She is used to picking up roots and moving, but it is an adjustment for her family. She gives us tips for helping kids cope with big changes.
On Wednesday, we will be in New York, where Maman Aya talks about sports, in true Olympic spirit. She ponders the question of whether she is ever likely to be the parent of an Olympic champion, how she would cope with that, and how do we find and nurture our children’s true talents?
On Thursday, we head to Canada to hear from Travel Lady with Baby, who lost her father as a young woman and wants to honour his memory and keep him alive for her child. In this poignant post, she tells us how she has been doing that.
On Friday, we go to Egypt, where Nihad is celebrating Ramadan. She explains what the meaning of Ramadan is and how it is observed.
On Saturday, check out the Saturday Sidebar with Eva Fannon, where the World Moms give their thoughts on an important topic, and chime in with your answers to this week’s question!

On Monday we’re part of a blog carnival, and who doesn’t like a good carnival? Jennifer Burden, our founder from New Jersey, will be writing a post for international childhood vaccine advocates Shot@Life.
On Tuesday, we head to UAE to hear from Manna Hatta Mamma. This mom lives in a melting pot of cultural diversity, where everyone seems to make statements about other groups on the basis of what their cultural background is. She ponders the question of how to erase the divisions between groups.
On Wednesday, we will hear from Carol @ If By Yes from Canada, where politeness is a way of life. Or is it? Perhaps the difference between the US and Canadian sides of the border is not a question of manners, but of forms of expression.
WMB Writer Kyla P’an and her kindred spirit in parenting, Rachel Osen.
There are so many different parenting styles in the world, which makes World Moms Blog writer, Tara B. ask,
“Do you have a kindred spirit in parenting? Aside from the bond of motherhood and the fact that all moms want the best for their kid…is there someone you know who operates just like you on the basic nuts and bolts of day to day parenting? If so, how did you find him/her?”
Check out what some of our World Moms had to say…
Kyla P’an of Massachusetts, USA writes:
“Yes, my friend in Montana, Rachel Osen. I don’t know if it’s because our kids are the same genders and exactly the same ages, or if it’s because our pre-children adulthood was so parallel, but she’s one of the few people I can be so open with about the trials and tribulations of parenting. I feel like we protect or guard our true selves all the time, much like Ruth Wong discussed in Motherhood is NOT a Competition, but I never feel that way with Rachel.” (more…)
On Monday we’re going to talk about manners! Courtney Cappallo in Massachusetts is dismayed at how rude and impatient people are, and she has some creative ideas for teaching her own kids how to be polite.
On Tuesday, we are heading to Oregon for a guest post from Sara Padilla. She is trying to raise children who are grateful for what they have, and she ponders the challenges of doing this in today’s society.
On Wednesday, we’re going to Brazil, where Eco Ziva talks about something that is so difficult to practice: environmentally friendly parenting. She tells us what she struggles with the most, and how she feels it can be rectified.
