The Kraken is a legendary giant sea monster. For parents, the Kraken is the hungry child who demands to be fed immediately or else the world will end!
People say that it takes a village to raise a child. In this age of Nuclear families, sadly, this is not a true fact anymore. As a new parent, I find myself feeling very alone when facing the Kraken in our household!
A Global Collaboration Project
This project is an opportunity for the all generations of parents to share their best recipes and advice on raising children.
The idea is that we will all pitch in and at the end we will have a great book of knowledge about what to feed our Krakens!
How Will This Work?

- After everyone sends in their recipe, an e-book will be created and distributed to supporters
What Are The Categories of Recipes?
- Extraordinary Circumstances (Teething, Illness, etc)
What Will The E-Book Look Like?

Kick It Forward Goal!
If this kickstarter initiative is successful, I pledge to kick it forward and donate back 5% post finished project amount to other projects on kickstarter.
Risks and challenges
Obstacles - We might only get one or two supporters! If that's the case this project isn't going to go anywhere!
Potential Delays - Life happens sometimes. If there are any delays, everyone will be notified of the new release date.
Production Challenge – People will be given a due date for their recipe. I’ll send out two reminders prior to the recipe being due, then a final reminder after the due date. If they do not send in the recipe after the third reminder, their recipe may not make it into the book.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
