I woke up this morning to find out my corner of London had been trashed along with many other London Boroughs in the London Riots. I’m just glad we dont live close enough the centre to have been personally affected. So what does this all mean for conscious parenting? Well I believe if these youths […]
So in this post I’ll be giving you some examples of how to say Yes to your kids and why it is so important! Did you know that according to statistics most toddlers hear the word ‘no’ over 400 times a day. That must be pretty frustrating. I wonder how we would feel if we […]
Stranger Anxiety is a normal healthy development in babies. It normally starts around 3-6 months or more and can last anywhere up to 1 – 2 years. My first son started having stranger anxiety about 4-5 months old and he’s only just fully got over it, he’s now just turned 2. Its a development where […]
I’ve been reading some posts lately on forums and magazines that have made me think about control and how much we use it automatically and unnecessarily with our kids. I’ve heard parents say unexpectedly that her daughter threw a tantrum that she couldn’t have her favorite show this morning because she has already watched one […]
I’m always an avid believer in ‘ The only person you can change is yourself’ philosophy. This goes for parenting and my relationship with my kids too. I try to always question and work on my reactions and beliefs as a parent before trying to ‘discipline’ my little ones. This often leads me to look […]
By the end of this post you’ll understand more gentle ways to deal with toddler tantrums, maintaining connection with your kids yet still being able to keep boundaries…. When your babies become toddlers they start to have really big scary emotions. On top of this they have very limited resources as to how to deal […]
One of the most important points of being a good parent is one of the things most parents overlook. The importance of taking time for ourselves. It was my sons 1st birthday recently and it gave me a chance to review my life, over the past year and look at how much time I’d given […]
I read a quote the other day on Facebook from Gay and Katie Hendricks page, Conscious Loving Relationships. It said: ‘Relationships take a quantum leap when each partner practices appreciation of the other person as a daily art form.’ I wondered what that would mean in the family dynamic if we started doing that to […]
Over the past few years there has been a lot of hype about the movie ‘The Secret’. If you haven’t watched it already, ‘The Secret’ is all about the Law of Attraction. Basically, the Law of Attraction states that, whatever you focus on you get more of, and in the words of the movie itself, ‘What you resist, persists’.

In this post I want to help you to heal a part of your own past, in order for that past to not affect you in the present. This is so important, especially when we have children of our own.
Recreating the Past So many people say they are not going to do or say to their children what their parents did or said to them. So many people find themselves doing or saying those same things anyway. The words just seem to fall out of our mouths, right? Often the way our parents parented […]
When I scan internet forums relating to parenting, I’m often shocked by the type of posts that are on there. Today I read a post from a mother who was angry at a stranger tutting at her for what she described as, running up to her toddler (who was running out the supermarket doors) grabbing […]
conscious parenting is all about the desire to raise your child in the most conscious, gentle way. To consciously parent the way we wanted to be parented and not the way we were parented.
