How do you know when it’s time to leap into the unknown and take a new educational path? Can happiness really be the touchstone we turn to when making family decisions?
Parents have a barrage of choices surrounding the educational environments their children are in. The constantly changing needs and wants of both parents and children must come together in a way that works best for everyone. It’s challenging! We’re in a time of expanding educational choices, and it’s important to openly consider all options.
What is a “normal parent”? Can conscious parents look to our current collective culture for attached parent models?
Studies are showing the number of children experiencing healthy emotional attachment are “abysmally low” for a modern and “advanced” society. Is parenting keeping pace with progress?
Parents today need courage to step away from the mainstream practices that are failing to foster healthy attachment.
Parents today are being given mixed messages about attachment parenting. With heavy workloads, lack of support, children with high needs, and conflicting parenting advice, many parents feel attachment parenting requires too much of them.
The truth is, responsiveness to stress and upset, and attunement to big emotions builds secure attachment – and this can be created consciously at any age or family stage.
The essence of attachment is beyond our physiological needs (food, water,
warmth) and is about thriving, not just surviving. Join Rebecca Thompson Hitt and Tracy Cassels as they begin this podcast series on Attachment and Healthy Development.
I knew that behavior changes due to punishment when I was growing came from a place of fear. If I changed my behavior, it was only in order to avoid more pain. I wanted my children to do the right thing because it was the right thing, not because they were afraid.
We’ve been talking about boundaries, finding them within ourselves and with others outside of our families. Many of the parents I talk to who have trouble with the metaphorical “Uncle Bob” also have a challenge setting boundaries with their own kids. Today’s episode, Christy Farr and Rebecca Thompson Hitt talk about what healthy, respectful and loving boundaries can look like with your kids.
Rebecca Thompson Hitt and Christy Farr talk about “Uncle Bob” and how to stay in relationship with him while still maintaining your own boundaries so it feels good to you and your family in the process.
Christy Farr, The Unruly Woman, joins Rebecca Thompson Hitt of The Consciously Parenting Project to talk about boundaries. We all have those situations that are uncomfortable and call for some sort of sanity-saving boundary. Maybe it’s just saying no to Uncle Bob. But how do we even know what’s really true for us? Join us in this episode to connect with yourself and find your own edges.
Continuing the conversation started with Scott Noelle, we’re exploring more ways that we can all build community support for ourselves and our families.
Scott Noelle and Rebecca Thompson Hitt conclude their conversation about creating community with some innovative ideas you can apply in your own family in your own neighborhood.
It’s interesting how difficult finding community in your own backyard can be. We want to be connected to one another, yet we disconnect from others when they aren’t connecting with their kids in the way that we’d like them to connect. So how do we navigate those relationships? How can we balance our support between in person and online connections? In this episode with Scott Noelle, we’ll discuss this and so much more. Join us!
