Re-Framing the Parenting Conversation: Invitation to Expand

As I stand in my world today, I believe there is no conversation more significant, more meaningful, more impactful than the one regarding the re-framing of parenting. While most parenting conversations revolve around advice giving and “how to” parent from a historically or scientifically driven perspective, Naomi Irons and I go way beyond in this conversation.

Personally, I am not particularly interested in the “how-to” conversations stemming from history that assume someone else, out there, knows what’s best for my child. Instead, I choose to parent from a place of trust of my own internal sensory cues and let that guide my parenting decisions. Parenting from the space of deep trust and self-intimacy feels safe, solid and expansive.

So far, so great.

In this conversation titled “The Power of Presence” Naomi Irons from the Poetry of Predicament podcast, Take my Hand Initiative: Conscious Parenting in a Time of Stolen Dreams, and I delve deep into what it means to parent for the birthright of human potential. …let the massiveness of that latter part of the sentence sink in for a second. If you choose to listen to the podcast, know that this is an expansive conversation is framed around the WEL-Systems® paradigm and it invites you to become more as you listen.

I know this was a fun, exciting, meaningful conversation for both Naomi and I. In the end, that is all that matters.

I hope you enjoy, and if it calls you, contact me to let me know what it moved in you. I’m always happy to chat!
