Join our tribe of parents who are striving to become more mindful and intentional in their parenting decisions. Mindful parenting is about joining the power of your own intuition, knowledge of your child, and research to make the best decisions for your family.
A Note from Amy
Thank you for joining me on this most important journey we call parenting. This blog focuses on helping us combine our innate parent intuition with child development research to make more thoughtful parenting decisions.
I believe parenting is not a job but a relationship.
I don’t pretend to be an expert on your child. You are the only expert on your child and his/her unique traits and quirks.
I see the value of research not in telling us what’s “right” or “wrong” with our parenting, but rather, helping us to see our children with a new lens.
I am a scholar, a writer, and (sometimes) a teacher, but mostly I’m a mom of two boys. Like many of you, I’m trying to raise my children into adults who care for others, listen to their inner voice, and use their gifts in a meaningful way in the world.
If you are open to understanding research and building a strong connection with your child, I hope you’ll join our tribe of parents.
Parenting Against the Grain
Another aspect of thoughtful parenting that we discuss on the blog is the idea of Parenting Against the Grain. As you make mindful parenting decisions for your kids, you often find yourself going against the grain of modern parenting culture.
Do you want:
- to value time and space for kids to be kids and allow time for free play?
- to find ways to NOT overschedule your kids?
- to foster strong emotional intelligence in your kids?
- to set age-appropriate limits on technology?
If you relate to this feeling, I urge you to join our Facebook Group, Parenting Against the Grain, where you will find support, encouragement and information to help you navigate your parenting choices. Join HERE!
