Positive parenting is powerful, yet easy parenting - neatly captures my approach to parenting in general:
That is want I want to do on these parenting pages - I wish to provide you with:
My ultimate goal is to do it in a way that will:
Sometimes I'll suggest methods that may seem very logical to you, but sometimes they may also seem somewhat funny or unorthodox, but hey ... as long as the parenting advice works, you feel it's right for you, and your child is happy in the process ... who cares, right?
I have more good news for you: You are not alone in this.
There are many devoted parenting allies out there just like you. In time as this site matures, you will be able to share your own insights, wisdom and parenting skills with everyone else ... right here, on these pages.
Also, I am here: Your positive parenting ally.
Please note that I'm not here to teach you.
Even though I am a cultural anthropologist with academic insights into human behaviour, psychology, and consciousness, I won't bore you with long academic speeches that are miles away from your hands-on reality - most of what you read on these pages will have a firm root in experience, typically my own as a mother.
My primary role as an anthropologist is not taking anything for granted. As a mother, I do the same thing. But the tools are different. As an anthropologist I question norms, rules and theories with my mind; as a mother I do it with my gut feeling and instinct.
With the tools of both a scientist and a mother my aim is to respectfully open parenting possibilities and encourage you.
I'm not without opinions, but you, of course, choose the direction you want for you and your child.
I will provide you with practical parenting advice that suggests ways to easily and successfully deal with breastfeeding, potty training, crying babies, bedtime rituals, tooth brushing, and the like.
Once again, these parenting tips are not teachings! They are helpful suggestions!
You are in power, you chose or you discard.
So if you're ready to embark on a wonderful journey of self discovery while raising your child in a spirit of consciousness and love ...
... please go on, skim, read, devour, or whatever your mood, temperament or ambition dictates, these pages on parenting experts and parenting styles e.g. positive parenting, unconditional parenting and attachment parenting.
Not everything will be, you know, serious stuff. There will also be 'lighter' pages with beautiful breastfeeding art and photo galleries and funny kids' quotes ideal for the coffee break. In the meanwhile you and your kids can have fun with these fun games for kids, learning games for kids and fun toddler activities.
So please, stay tuned.
Lots of stuff - serious, inspirational, hopefully enlightening - and absolutely not to forget, fun - is on it way as you read these words.

Your Positive Parenting Ally,
Being a parent can feel like a double-edged sword. Life with kids may feel like the greatest gift you have ever received, while at the same being hugely challenging, often leaving you confused, stressed and overwhelmed.
When we feel like this, we've lost touch with ourselves. We can't hear our own inner voice, and it's difficult to know what is 'right' for us and how to act.
I offer in-depth parent coaching to help you regain your balance and get back in touch with yourself. From a place of inner peace and clarity, your will find your own answers which will help you reconnect with your child from a place of unconditional love and acceptance.
