Punky Moms was brought to life in April 2002 as a meeting place for alternative parents to find like-minded friends and neighbors. Today so many years later, we are still achieving that goal!
As a member of our forum, one can vent frustrations and swap anecdotes and beauty secrets. We have also extended and started a private facebook group too that you can join. Punky Moms always provides a place where alternative parents can be themselves – not try to fit in some mold someone decided was the right way to parent.
The kids that sported the mohawks and tattoos or wore black lipstick and Victorian dresses are all grown up now and having children of their own. Our children are the ones sporting the black onesies with skulls, and we are the parents who have chosen to raise our families outside of the box.
So just what is a “Punky Mom?” Jennifer and Paula, the boards owners feel that a Punky Mom is a lot of different things. No two Punky Moms are alike. While some Punky Moms have piercings and tattoos, others don’t. Some may choose to cloth diaper, make their own baby food and practice attachment parenting, others might not. . Breastfeeding or formula fed, we won’t judge you. We like you just the way you are.
We have had so many different types of members throughout the years in our community that although we aren’t one voice, together we make a lot of noise.
So sign up today, post an intro, and come meet your new BFFs.
About The Punky Moms Owners:
Jenn has been described as “the archetype of the next generation matriarch” – whatever that means. She resides in not-so-sunny south Florida. With her children working on being nearly grown, she dreams about living in a tiny house almost anywhere else. Jenn runs the technical aspect of Punky Moms. Whenever there is a tech problem, she fixes it. She is the great and powerful Oz.
Paula is an old school goth with a riot grrrl heart. Her diy attitude ensures that shit gets done around Punky Moms, by any means possible. Born in Miami Beach, she followed love and moved to the UK in 2012. She has one little boy named Oscar, a dashing English husband, and a furball terrier at home. In a past life she helped raise two step-children and knows the importance of blended families. She is trying desperately not to miss the Florida sun.
Our site is updated often with important and informative articles not just on parenting, but all four trimesters of pregnancy, feminism and diy projects. We have Punky Approved Recipes in our Kitchen of Chaos as well as our very own Spotify profile featuring our curated Punky Mom Music Mixtape playlists.
“We are not just Punkers anymore, we are now parents, with the same passions that we always had to make living on this earth a better place. When it comes down to it, we are just open-minded moms, who love raising children…it’s simple, back to the basics parenting…without judgement. Everyone is welcome.” – Winter Rosebudd
