Welcome to the blog
Hello and Welcome
Hi there! My name is Zulma Laracuente, but most people know me as Dr. Lara. I’m a mother of twin, teen girls. My husband and my daughters are my motor to keep going in this crazy adventure that people call life. I understand that being a parent is sometimes scary and stressful. I started to write this blog so that I can help you to navigate through the difficult and unrelentingly rewarding world of parenting, with as much ease as possible.
This is a bilingual blog, where you can find every single post written by me in English and Spanish.
Have an idea for a blog post? Get in contact with me! I would be happy to hear what my audience wants to learn about next!

What to Expect From Being a Parent
1 - 3 Years
During this time the physical growth slows down a bit, but you will notice massive gains in the social and intellectual areas. Your child will hit some HUGE milestones now! Walking, talking, and the infamous terrible two’s… and I’ll introduce you to the terrible three’s.
4 - 5 Years
Sending them off to school for the first time is a whirlwind of emotions. They are climbing that developmental ladder faster than you realize. Your child will soon learn to solve problems and be proud of their work. Please be confident in their ability to achieve these challenges.
