Why I chose Natural Parenting {Guest Blog}

natural parenting
I have had a few people in the last week or so asking me about the term gentle /natural/attachment parenting and what is means. I thought I would write a description about what it is and how we introduce it to our family. I don’t tend to follow all of the principles so I will just stick to the one’s we do follow and explain those in more detail.

  1. I think those are very interesting point. I am somewhat of a middle of the road parent. I do believe some behaviors are naughty though and inspired by naughty feelings (whether they are jealousy or anger because one is not getting what one wants) and need to be corrected. I do often send the 2 year old to his room as his cooling off place. No matter how you slice it, sitting on people’s heads is not acceptable 😭

    • I agree that it is all about individual circumstances and doing what is best for YOUR family. I’m all about not judging other families for how they do things, because our situations are all different. Sitting on heads is definitely unacceptable! Hopefully he’ll work that out soon!!

  2. We use the natural parenting method but found it was what we did naturally- without extra thought or reading. For me I think ots because of my childcare training and for hubby its personality but honestly every family is different and its great there is info available about all of the different parenting styles so that there is opportunity to work out which is best for each family/child.

  3. Natural parenting for me is about balance and authenticity. As a father that means basing our activities around natural, body based movement – keeping it simple with running, nippers at the beach and dance. We have avoided complex, equipment-heavy sports like sailing or motorbikes. It means using our bodies as being away from screens often.
    Of course, we each find our own versions, and your inspirations are really helpful.
    Thank you,
