I’m so pleased to be opening up The Peaceful Home to new members, ready for a brand new topic in September.
I believe that parenting can be a truly radical act. The way in which we raise our children can have a profound positive impact on our families, our communities, and our world. At its heart, peaceful parenting is a social justice issue. As adults, we have more power than our children. How we choose to use our power matters. If we want a just society, we must move from traditional models of parental control and coercion towards new models of connection, collaboration and freedom.
It’s not just about social change though; peaceful parenting is better for our children. Research has shown time and again that children who are free from praise, punishments and rewards have greater motivation, embrace more challenges, and enjoy the lasting positive effects of a growth mindset. That the less we try and control our children’s behaviour, the less they act in ways which are seen as problematic. That when we prioritise connection and collaboration, the whole family flourishes.
But the truth is, no matter how many books you read, or courses you take, or coaching you sign up to, I don’t believe that you can just “become” a peaceful parent. It is an active journey, something that needs to be worked on day after day, month after month, year after year, as our parenting adapts and grows alongside our children. It’s about fundamentally changing our mindset as parents, challenging the way we were raised and the traditional models of parentings which surround us and working on ourselves to be able to show up in the way our children deserve, as we model being authentic and empathetic humans.
This is important work but it can be hard at times, and it is even harder without support. We are not meant to do it alone.
That is why I have created The Peaceful Home, a private membership group where you will be supported by me and other like-minded parents every step of the way of your peaceful parenting journey.
Each month you will have access to:
- Video workshops on peaceful parenting (also available as audio downloads)
- Mini podcasts recorded by me exclusively for The Peaceful Home members (new from September 2019)
- A PDF workbook filled with information, practical ideas, questions for you to work through alone or with a partner, and journalling and reflection prompts
- A curated ‘reading’ list of blogs, books, research, and articles
- Weekly live Q&A videos
- Bonus interviews and content
- Discounts on mentoring calls and coaching programmes
- A whole lot of support and guidance from me and other like-minded parents to work through any bumps that come up in your journey
September’s focus is on self care for peaceful parenting.
Previous topics have included calm communication, inner work and mindset, parenting without punishment, setting loving limits, raising socially aware children, playful parenting, parenting with consent, simplifying for peaceful parenting, and supporting children to develop emotional intelligence and resilience.
As a member you will have access to the whole library of content from all of the previous topics.
There is also a private Facebook group which you can join if you would like, although you don’t have to.
You can read what other parents have said about The Peaceful Home here.
