Looking for a particular Top 10 list and can't find it here? Send me your requests and I will do the research for you.

Email me at hello@theparentexpress.com


From time to time we will be asking you, the reader, to submit your Top 10 lists in a series of reader polls. We will collate them and post the results.

If you don't want to miss out on our next poll, be sure to subscribe to our newsletter.


Whilst I love researching and creating Top 10 lists I don't pretend to be an expert (apart from my 5 years of being a Mum). For that reason every now and then I will invite experts to create their Top 10 lists.

Expect to see guest posts from nutritionists, travel experts and event organisers on The Parent Express soon.
