Offbeat kids books about sex and bodies
Founded by Ariel Meadow Stallings, the author who brought you Offbeat Bride: Creative Alternatives for Independent Brides and offbeatbride.com, Offbeat Families seeks to celebrate and empower families as they navigate the realities of parenting.
Formerly known as Offbeat Mama, we like supporting and inspiring parents and caregivers who are moving beyond mainstream visions of parenting. We welcome anyone who’s interested in families, whether you’re pre-parental, in the process of becoming a parent, or choosing to live childfree.
We believe that while children change your life forever, being around children doesn’t necessitate abandoning your identity. Offbeat Families continues the driving theme of Offbeat Bride: encouraging women to integrate their identities into situations that tell them they should drop it all and follow the template.
We believe each parent has the right to make their own educated decisions about what works for them and their family. Our only shoulds are loving your children and caring for them with educated intent. Offbeat Families doesn’t subscribe to any particular parenting philosophy or dogma, as we believe that every family and situation is unique, and what works for one Offbeat Families in one situation may not work for another.
While we address parenting hot-topics, we do so in the context of lighthearted and proactive inspiration — never condemnation. As part of the Offbeat Empire family of sites, we’re committed to furthering the company’s cause of constructive, civil online communities and conversation.
