“DARON/DARONNE”

noun, French slang or argot for father/mother, master/mistress, gang leader, brothel owner/madam.
Used in the 17th century used to designate the master of the house, later the head of housekeeping. Would be derived from the word ‘Baron’ and perhaps a crossing with the old French ‘dam‘, which means lord or master

DARONS&DARONNES brings portraits of parents and their families. People like you and me – or not – friends and acquaintances who inspire us or that make us wonder: how do they manage to handle their household? We talk about education and parenting, successful or disastrous routines. About choices we (have to) make. Values and experiences. About taking your time with your family, alone and as a couple. About not being perfect and staying sane in an insane world. We share childhood memories and we talk about losing control and finding it back again. Because parenting is all about trial and error.

DARONS&DARONNES does not want to claim or evangelise a way of parenting. We are not here to judge anyone. We’re just reflecting on some topics. And share news on what you might find interesting.

DARONS&DARONNES is an online magazine. An ode to modern parenting. A state of mind. A work in progress, sometimes contradictory, maybe untidy and complex, but always based on tender love & care. Just as most of families and households out there.
