Editorial Policy

While many of our craft project topics require very little editing and revision, articles on parenting undergo a rigorous review and approval process before publishing.

1. Topic Selection And Helpfulness

Parenting topics written about on The How To Mom are intended to be  relevant and helpful to our readers, particularly moms raising children. Our process for selecting these topics involves identifying concerns and common solutions that are sought out by our target audience. Many times these articles are the result of personal experience by the author (see #2 below).

Once a topic is verified as relevant, we determine how to approach it from the most helpful angle to ensure that the information provides true value for the reader.

Depending on the subject, this may involve creating a how-to guide, answering a commonly asked question, or recommending a product or service that may help the reader solve the problem.

2. Personal Experience

Parenting articles are written by Teresa, a Registered Nurse and mother of two. She applies personal, professional, and academic knowledge when writing to ensure that content is accurate and beneficial to our readers.

3. Academic Research And Validation

Articles are often written with supporting evidence from academic or government sources. When cited, links to these sources are provided within the text of the article. These links serve two purposes;

  1. validation of the accuracy of the referenced information, and
  2. to provide a source for additional information for readers who desire more in-depth information on a given topic.

4. Final Fact-Checking

Before publishing, each article is subjected to a final review. This review serves to ensure the clarity and accuracy of the information. This includes fact-checking of any statistics, references to other sources, or data that may be pertinent to the overall accuracy of the content.

While omissions and errors can still occur, this four-step process helps us to minimize those mistakes. See our Terms of Service for information on limitations of liability. You can also Contact Us with any errors that you identify.
