submission guidelines
 

Our Contributors 

This is a non-judgmental and positive space where parents such as yourself can share your personal journey and milestones. This way you not only interact directly with our 35 million+ strong parenting community, but also become an integral part of someone else’s parenting journey.

We encourage you to share your stories with the goal of helping other parents. An article, an image, or a video can help fellow parents become knowledgeable enough to practice positive parenting with their children and hold meaningful conversations within their relationships. As a contributor, you could also highlight your own parenting ideals and engage in topics that most people wouldn’t normally discuss openly.  

You can also share a short bio (approximately 60 words) along with your submission. This allows us to publish your article along with your name and photograph. 

Our Audience

Our target audience consists of aspirational Asian parents and our primary goal is to help such mums and dads raise healthy, happy, and confident children through every stage of their parenting journey by providing the following: accurate, comprehensive, relevant content; a non-judgmental support network; and top quality products designed to cater to their needs.

We are the #1 parenting community in Southeast Asia and we would love for you to join us on our mission to help 50 million families have healthy pregnancies and raise happy, healthy, and confident children.


Our Writing Guidelines

At theAsianparent we encourage our contributors and aspiring writers to write with a voice or style that matches their topic. As a contributor, you may use serious, point-based, or even a relaxed tone. But please bear in mind to keep it professional and respectful so that all theAsianparent parents can enjoy and learn from your experience.

The average length of your post is 3 minutes, roughly 550 words. However, this is not a strict rule. Depending on the chosen topic and the writing style, this 3-minute rule can fluctuate at theAsianparent's discretion. Shorter submissions of 1 to 2 minutes are also acceptable if it matches the topic (e.g. labour story, marriage incident and advice, etc.).

Kindly only submit original content. You can include reference links or works cited as links at the bottom of the submission.
