I’m so excited to introduce you to this parenting series with my lovely friend Sara from Happiness is here. We are real life friends and often talking together about respectful parenting and all the what, why and how of our parenting ideals. So we would love for you to join us as we explore deeper.
30 Days Towards Connected Parenting is going to explore what we as parents can do to work on our ourselves and our connection and relationship with our children. This series is about improvement and growth.
We will be discussing how we nurture a deeper connection with our children. Ultimately, connection is so important and a great relationship with your kids makes parenting easier. If your children feel connected (and all that comes with that – the feeling of being valued and trusted) they value and trust you in return! Consequently, you find your words and thoughts and parenting in general has more impact.
When you have a strong bond with your children, you find there is no need for punitive and controlling parenting methods. In this series we are discussing all the misconceptions, tools and changes in mind frame and expectations that have led us to a much more peaceful and connected life with our kids.
Too often I think parenting articles, blogs and books seem to focus on what to do TO children – rather than how we can work WITH them. I find there seems to be a subconscious emphasis on power and control. This series, however, focuses on actionable ways we can empower ourselves and improve our connection with our kids.
This series isn’t some step by step guide or answer to all parenting problems. It’s not about perfection but intention. It’s about focusing that intent on things that are more likely to help us in this parenting journey.
We are not experts and are simply passionate mothers keen to discuss and help improve connection. Join us wherever you are in that journey – we hope it helps inspire change and that you engage with us so we can keep an open dialogue and learn together!
Sara and I have worked hard to prepare this series and hope you find it helpful. You can follow along with a new post every second day this month either here or over at Happiness is here. I hope to see you there – I’m so looking forward to this!
