How to get published on our website?
You can submit your rough drafts, partial drafts or even just a pitch with an outline. We will give you a good feedback, but only when your article is well-written, well-researched and incredibly compelling. Remember, we do not accept plagiarized content. So before you send us something, make sure it has a fresh perspective and is completely original.
Every submission sent to us, goes through a process of internal review by our team members. Our experts thoroughly check your posts and handpick the best ones from the lot. Here are a couple of things to consider for submission of your posts. We accept posts that
- Have a proper thesis and a clear set of argument on the topic. It should not be a simple list of tips or hacks for authoritative parenting. The content should be rich and every point should be supported with an argument.
- Has a voice and perspective of its own. The ideas you talk about should be your own. The perspective you use, should be fresh. Try to be bold and compelling in your write-ups.
- Are written for a target audience of authoritative parents. Your contents should talk about how this approach helps in successful development of a child. It should be addressed directly to the parents.
- Are supported with arguments that are convincing enough. Your write-up should not be a mere list of opinions. You should check your facts and cite references for as many sources you can.
Additionally, there are also a couple of other things that you have to ensure;
- Cite back to those credible resources that strengthen your claim, concept and opinion on a certain topic.
- Try to cite examples that are relatable for the readers. Your examples should compel them to visualize the exact message you’re looking out to deliver to them.
- Use images and video links (wherever possible) that support your content.
Sounds pretty easy right? But hold on right there. Our team also has to reject a couple of posts for a variety of reasons. So if you don’t want your article to be a part of that statistic, read on to know what kind of submissions, we do not accept.
What do we reject?
Irrelevant topics - We reject all the topics that irrelevant to our site. We are an authoritative parenting site and your content has to revolve around this approach. You can come up with contents ranging between what to do and what not to do to be a good parent, inspirational examples of successful authoritative parents and so on. But sending something about choosing the right curtain or figuring out the right loan; wouldn’t really help us.
Too long or too short posts - We do not accept submissions that are either too short (blurbs) or too long (length of a novel).
Plagiarized posts - We respect writers who make their living through writing and therefore do not accept any submissions that are plagiarized or spun from any other source. You can take inspiration regarding the idea, but the style and structure of the content should be entirely your own. We do not compromise with the quality of a post.
Posts that are written with the purpose of marketing - We do not accept submissions that try to market a service or a tool with which the writer is associated.

Material for submission
The goal of our website is to give parents a complete insight on authoritative parenting. This parenting takes a unique and more moderate approach where parents set high standards for their children while being nurturing and responsible simultaneously. This approach focuses on showing respect for kids as rational and independent individuals. While offering emotional support, the authoritative parent also expects co-operation and emotional support from their child. Our site focuses on this concept and helps parents to follow the approach of authoritative parenting.
If you are visiting our site for long and have browsed through the articles published here, you will know that we publish every such content that leaves a positive impact in the lives of parents.
We currently do not participate in any kind of link-exchange system. So please do not send in your website links. Our team is always open to all kinds of criticism and suggestions posted by our readers. Do get in touch with us, if you are happy or unhappy with a certain submission.
Posts that have certain keywords and links in any part of the article, (including the author’s bio) are not published on our site. This is because the links tend to confuse the readers and in some cases are used as an attempt to raise search engine ranks of a particular website.
