Parenting asks us to face the vulnerability of being in relationship with our children. Vulnerability isn’t always pretty. It means the good and the bad that exists deep inside all of us. It means managing a full range of experiences, difficult and not, and continuing to offer ourselves in love and kindness. When a children experience a secure relationship, they thrive. A true healthy relationship is balancing everyone’s needs, making compromises, communicating and supporting each other. Parents can become better people every day when we commit to the true nature of our child’s joy, sorrow and desire for connection.

Our interviews are authentic and genuine. I’ve talked to many professionals in the fields of child psychology, child development, education, spirituality, behaviorists, a “social philosopher”, authors of best-selling parenting books, Mommy bloggers, literature and publishing. I have SO MUCH enjoyed having conversations with people all over the globe about relationship based parenting! There are amazing, passionate people out there working to support parents, guide them and educate them to encourage healthy development of children and families.
