6/5/2017 Weekly Newsletter: Building Community

I’m so excited to share my latest podcast with Scott Noelle as we talk about The Continuum Concept and building community! Here’s what one mom had to say after she listened to the podcast:

“This is such a good episode for expectant parents or parents of very little ones who are needing to be held very often. I love how Scott says that babies are designed to be held all the time, it just wasn’t supposed to be by only one person. Good insight and encouragement.”

As the parent of two teen boys, I know that parents with children of all ages can benefit from remembering that! We all need community!

We’ll be continuing the conversation with Scott over the next two weeks, so stay tuned for Part 2: Creating a village and finding other non-conformists, and Part 3: Growing Community Organically.

Be sure to check out our blog posts. From staying connected with messy rooms to Story Healing and An Alternative View of Tantrums and Emotional Upsets, we hope you find something that will help you stay inspired and connected in your family!

Podcast Episode 5: From the Inside-Out

Episode 5 is up! This week begins a new series with Scott Noelle: Continuum Concept and Community. We’re designed to be in relationship, yet our current societal structure has most families feeling fairly isolated. Join me as I speak with Scott Noelle about The Continuum Concept by Jean Leidloff, about the experiences of living in an indigenous community and how embracing some of the ideas in Leidloff’s book can be applied to help us find our own way in our current society. Part 1 of a 3-part series.

Can Everyone Benefit from Story Healing?

From the Consciously Parenting archives: What is clear to me is that children and parents alike benefit from hearing and telling stories. This is something that parents can do themselves from home with just a little bit of guidance and a dash of curiosity to see what happens. Click to read


An Alternative View of Tantrums and Emotional Upsets

From the Consciously Parenting archives: Think of someone you feel supports you- maybe a friend or your partner. What does this person do? Do they try to fix it? Give you a solution? Send you away? Hang up the phone until you can calm yourself down? No. Click to read
