Peaceful Parenting and Social Justice are intrinsically linked, to me. Focusing first on our own self regulation, which includes healing and self-care, so we have a whole-brain and are able to connect and increase connection with our children, so we can coach and not control them.
Peaceful Parenting is connection and empathy based. It doesn’t take long to make the leap from ourselves, our children to the world and to realize we are all interconnected and in fact, we are all one.
We realize that if one of us is hurting, voiceless, and/or repressed in any way, so are we all. We are not free until everyone is free! In raising our children and rewiring our brains, our awareness grows. “All change begins with Awareness.
In fact, Awareness is the Change.” One of my favorite quotes. I think the Dalai Lama said it, but I haven’t found it again. As the Holidaze begin, it is a great time to grow our awareness and change!
