Three Positive Parenting Ads

Let’s start off the week on a positive note, shall we?

Typically, ads depict parents as outdated, hot messes. Until the holidays or Olympics roll around then, we’re hit with emotionally-charged ads that give us the warm fuzzies and we need to bust out the Kleenexes. Recently, I’ve been encouraged by a wave of positive parenting ads. These realistic ads showcase the best of parenting: it’s messy, fun, exhausting and rewarding. Case in point, I just typed “exhausting” twice.


Just in case these ads didn’t pull at your heart-strings, this one is sure to make you think twice about the overused phrase “like a girl.” Since watching this a few weeks ago, I’ve made an effort to not tell my daughter to “act like a lady” but rather, “please listen.”

Of course, these ads are meant to evoke an emotional response and leave you with a favorable impression of the brand. Mission accomplished. Share your thoughts and favorite ad in the comments below. Happy Monday!

It's almost comical how exhausted I look I this picture. Or, how exhausted I am in this picture. I was the last one to teach today and those 30 minutes were equal parts fear and joy mixed with the bittersweet feelings of "an ending" coupled with the nerve-wracking energy that propels us into unknown "beginnings." These last 10 months have been emotional, joyous and introspective. I'm so thrilled to be a registered yoga teacher! So honored to have taught/learned/laughed/cried/danced/sang/practiced alongside my fellow teacher trainees. And feel blessed to have learned from Mel and Jes who poured their hearts and heads into this program. 💜 Do good. Be good. 🕉
