Parenting is the most confusing journey you’ll ever take.
As Mums and Dads, we want to provide the best life possible for our children. Yet we often don’t have a clear picture of the actions we need to take, in order for this to naturally unfold.
There’s no shortage of advice. The trouble is that it’s inconsistent. Our family may tell us one thing, our friends another and the experts something different again. Some of the advice may really resonate. But the rest just doesn’t speak to who you are as a person, who you are as a parent, or it simply isn’t a match for that unique child in front of you.
It’s time to get back to basics. It’s time to keep things simple.
In this blog post I’m sharing my top reads for parents. While a range of topics are covered, the key message remains the same; give your child freedom to move, an abundance of play, good fuel, unconditional love, as well as the trust that he or she will seek out what is needed for their developmental progression, at the pace that’s right for them.
So here it is, your cheat sheet. Read what you need at this moment in time, then bookmark the post for later reference. Keep things simple, remember?
