I’m currently sitting in a space of potent gratitude.
.
Recently I was interviewed by Debbie Reber at @tiltparenting
.
It was a beautiful interview and in closing, I touched on my deep gratitude and appreciation for my community.
.
My community is all of you.

When we connect with our children

We’ll often find that what we think is best

What others tell us is best

What society says is best

May often be the opposite

Of what makes them feel safe.

It’s okay to celebrate birthdays without the party

It’s okay to spend more time at home...

PDA (Pathological Demand Avoidance) and consequences.
----------------------------------------------------------

As a PDAer, I’ve always been organically wired to explore worst case scenarios, rather than consider consequences.

The moment a thought entered my mind aro...

We are so quick to decide that a person does differently due to choice.
.
That they don't work, don't socialise, don't behave a particular way because they choose it.
.
Children's brains aren't even wired to be able to access the insight required to prevent themselves...

My sense of time in motion, or how much time has passed is non existent

I will often call friends and family and pick up conversations we had months, even years ago

I used to respond very poorly to important stuff.

If someone took issue with something I said or did,

I’d force...

We’re heading home this afternoon

Were we meant to leave today?

Nah

We got here last night

But we’re heading home today

Once upon a time

I would’ve cried

Felt hard done by

Felt it was unfair

Felt angry

Cheated

Frustrated

But today

We just giggle

Brush it off

This is our normal

Our lit...

Since sharing my post on a day at the hairdressing salon, many people have asked why I bother if the trip causes me so much stress and burnout.

Here’s why..

When I am in the salon, I am treated with such loving kindness.

I am offered and served herbal teas, magazines.

I am...

Don’t I look happy?
.
I shared a day in the life of me getting a haircut a month ago.
.
I addressed the anxiety associated with travelling into the city, finding a car park, panicking over whether I’d lose my car, forget where I parked, forget the route I walked to get...
