From the 10th Annual Shorty Awards Best in Parenting/Family

It ain’t easy being a parent. And it can be pretty tough being a kid too. Everyone knows that families come in all shapes and sizes, making each family unique and the challenges that arise difficult to deal with. These are the families we have laughed with and cried alongside this year, and the parents who have impressed us with their resilience and creativity.

If you’re a brand looking for recognition for your use of social media in this space, enter the Best in Family and Parenting Shorty Award.
