Heya, and welcome to Offbeat Families!

We spent four years publishing over 2000 amazing posts here, intended for anyone interested in talking about families — whether you're pre-parental, in the process of becoming a parent, or choosing to live child-free.

(Yeah, we know: we might be one of the few parenting websites that actively welcomes child-free readers. You don't have to want to have children to want to read about families — Offbeat Aunties and Uncles, represent!)

Although we're no longer producing new posts, Offbeat Families is very much a living archive bursting with awesome posts.

We're also still VERY active on Facebook. You should totally follow us over there, to get a guided tour of our favorite Offbeat Families posts, as well as fun stuff from our sister site, Offbeat Home & Life.

If you want to get a deeper sense of our values, head over here.

And finally … don't forget to take a deep breath and appreciate the awesomeness of love and commitment. Diving into family dynamics doesn't have to be high drama or terrifying — it can be fun and awesome.
