From the 9th Annual Shorty Awards Parenting

Parenting is hard work, and anyone with kids knows that there are infinite ways to go about doing it. Our nominees represent just a few of those ways, all of which find magic in the small things and teachable moments around every corner. These are the families we have laughed and cried along with 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.
