Family finance & legal advice

Parent24 guides parents through UIF and taking maternity leave, drawing up nanny contracts and negotiating fair wages, divorce, child maintenance and visitation rights, claiming child benefits, and more. We also cover financial issues such as saving up for a baby, choosing the right medical aid plan for your family, and look at the costs of things like extramural activities and school stationery. If you're a parent, we'll have some finance or legal stories for you.

Family health

Every family knows the snots, the ear infections, the chickenpox. In our family health section we help you with advice about common illnesses, supplements, healthy habits and how to stay well during the winter months. We also discuss special needs, from childhood depression and autism to cerebral palsy and Down syndrome. 


What do you do when your and your spouse's parenting styles differ? How do you talk to your kids about racism? And tragedy? Do you reward or punish or just talk things through? In this section we look at different parenting styles, conflicts and how to navigate this thing called parenting.

Family recipes and nutrition

Looking for quick, healthy meals you can make in the middle of the week which everyone from dad to baby will love? Or party snacks or healthy smoothies or lunchbox ideas? Our family nutrition section is the place for you. We also have meal plans for toddlers, pregnant women, and tips to start eating healthier as a family.

Birthday parties

Who doesn't love a party? We have dozens of party themes, birthday cake ideas and real birthday parties to inspire you to be the favourite mom (until the next party at least).
