Many of your are busy creating Hub Answers for the Know It All Contest, but did you know that Hubs created as Answers to Weekly Topic Inspiration Questions also count? They might even have a better chance of winning because Weekly Topic Inspiration Questions are on search-friendly topics (and search-friendliness is a big part of our judging criteria).
This week’s theme is parenting advice. What helpful tips and tricks can you offer as a parent (or an observant son or daughter)? Share them (and win anything from $50 to $500 in prize money) this week!
Here are some search-friendly titles to use (they might give you a leg up in the contest ):

Finally, if you want to actively participate in the contest, be sure you’ve read through the Know It All Contest entry requirements and contest rules on our official contest page. If, for example, your Hub does not have properly cited images, or if it does not contain at least 500 words, it cannot win any prizes!
I just re-read the directions and realized I am supposed to post a link here. Note to self: Read directions carefully. I wrote my hub on travel tips for parents who are taking a young child on a long airplane ride. This was inspired by the recent incident where a Rhode Island family was booted from Jet Blue after their 2-year-old threw a tantrum:

I'm still in. Reading some of the hubs for the WTI I am more inspired. Although my cheese is over there, Sunday or Saturday night is still open. Some feedback may help. Could parenting be written from the aunt or uncle perspective? How about parenting in the workplace with those entry level co-workers? Does being the neighborhood extended family fit the bill too? Now, I went and made it more complicated for me - or, I have choices to choose from.
Have a great day everyone
Excellent. I see a couple that I would love to write about. Thanks! Now I'll have to remember to start the hub in the right place.
Thanks Simone! My mind is getting busy... Have a beautiful day...
I'm In. The weekly topic is turning out to be a lot of fun too! Not being a real parent (or I haven't biological kids) this will be challenging. The ideas you provided Simone will help me figure out a topic. Look for around Thur (day off for writing) for a post. Have a great evening everyone1
Glad you'll be joining in, tsmog! Even if you're not a parent, you do have parents, and I'm sure you've learned a lot from their successes and mistakes!
I don't have any human children, never mind biological -I have what DizzyMissLizzy refers to as a fur child-my cat. I'm not sure that will be of any help with this topic, though.
Oh, wow, this WTI is just right up my street. I have a lot of ideas planned out along these lines already.
Cool! I was beginning to worry there was not a WTI this week, but just skimmed over the title of the forum thread... oops!
I just finished a hub for this week's topic. It was supposed to be just 1 hub but I decided to tackle the topic in two hubs. This is part 1 on Raising Children on a Budget. Hope to finish the next one soon.
Hi Simone, can this Hub be about financial advice for new parents? Thanks.
Here's mine. Hope it qualifies....

Count me in on this week's topic. I am going to tackle teenagers and survival tips for both parents and teens.
Here is my contribution for the WTI:
http://stephhicks68.hubpages.com/hub/Sh … ng-Courses
As the mom of 4 (including a set of twins), I have found parenting classes and other support groups very helpful!
Wrote a hub about when children grow up and away from their single parent. They are still our children. Suggestions on how a single Mother, for example, needs to be independent from them when that time comes, for her children's sake, as well as for her own.
Hope you enjoy it. Thanks for the opportunity

Enjoyed reading this one. We exercise daily as a family. It's so important.
I'm so glad! You shared a wonderful balance of tips in this one. And great original photos!
Here is my contribution to this weeks topic. Tip for dealing with teenagers. Just remember you will survive.http://lindysworld.hubpages.com/hub/Tips-For-You-and-Your-Teen-On-How-to-Navigate-The-Middle-School-Years. Hope you enjoy.
Ok I can be such a ditz sometimes lol. I left the title of my hub but didn't make a link oops. Let me try again
Good one! Yeah, just remembering you can make it through the teen years is all parents can do to keep from going crazy, sometimes!
I’ve done two so far on this theme. Taking a slightly different view on advice:

I wrote this: http://emmaharvey.hubpages.com/hub/Pare … n-a-budget
- in response to the weekly inspiration topic (I forgot to post here, although I wrote it the other day). It's all about my experiences trying to budget during pregnancy and having my baby. Hope the tips are useful for others!
I used your title again this week Simone! This one takes positivity to a new extreme - not only do you not need to spank, you also don't need other forms of correction like time-outs or grounding.

Here is my link for the week's topic. I wrote about parenting the strong willed child. I hope it is helpful. Thanks!

Hello! What I'm about to link is my very first hub; I hope I did it right! In response to the current WTI, I wrote about building your baby's self-confidence:

Based on my experience raising two very active boys, I had to take the humorous route on this one: http://marcygoodfleisch.hubpages.com/_1 … d-behavior
Hey everyone! The new thread is up. Our newest topic is all about going green at the grocery store. I hope you'll join in!
Sorry I'm late to post!! These darn toddlers keep me busy.
