TulsaKids’ Top Articles of 2021
We thought it’d be fun to take a page from some of our fellow parenting publications and look at our most popular articles of the past year! It’s always interesting to see what draws readers from both the Tulsa area and around the globe. You can pretty much guarantee, for example, that our “Age-Appropriate Books to Talk to Your Kids About Sex” article, published several years ago, will be one of our top-trending articles any week of the year. And Diane Morrow-Kondos’ blog post about becoming a step-parent isn’t far behind!
