children need limits…

December 8, 2008 at 4:24 am 5 comments

What do you think? We are saying that children do not need limits, but that parents most certainly do.  Natural parenting is not about being permissive.  It is about honouring our children and ourselves and always seeking and allowing ways for everyone’s needs to be met.  Finding mutually fulfilling strategies for meeting our children’s needs takes some creativity and presence.  It also asks us to become conscious and aware, shedding our old patterns and conditioned habits of responding.

What beliefs do you hold about  children needing limits?

Parent coaching can help you uncover these unconscious beliefs which limit you from connection more deeply with your child.  As a society, we have not been parenting in ways which allow humans to fulfill their potential.  Can we make the radical changes necessary to support our children and ourselves…and to heal the planet?  Nonviolence, sustainability, peace, joy…these are all potential outcomes of natural parenting.

Are you hungry for this?  Our clients are courageous and committed to letting go of the old parenting paradigm and creating something new, something better.  Join us for classes, consultations and coaching.

    I am unable to get anything done while she is awake. If I am not almost constantly devoted to her, she cries. So inevitably I stop trying to do anything and play with her. I know you belive in ”Do Less and Be More with your child” but that means i will never eat, never cook and live in filth. She barely naps for 1.5 hours during the day, hwich doesnt leave much time for getting anything done. Besides, she wakes up mid way and needs me to fall back asleep. I know that I am the reason she is so clingy. But I don’t know how to change it.

    Forgive me for that last comment. I was feeling a bit overwhelmed. I came across some stuff my Dr. Solter which seems to apply to my situation. Fingers crossed 🙂
