Aug 27, 2021

Parenting While the World Falls Apart
The world has be in bewilderment right now.
I can't do it all-- but I can parent from a place of radical optimism.
I can turn off the news and focus on my house.
Dr. Jane Nelson believes belonging and significance are the key parts of raising children.  Read more in her books.
You matter.  I like you just the way you are.  I'm so glad you're here.
You don't have to mother alone-- for three months join me shoulder to shoulder in the Finish the Book Community.
Self-Care Ideas:
Make sleep important.  If you aren't sleeping well, enjoy a kids cartoon and try to rest.  
Quiet-- find the quiet you need to rest. Try out the Breathe With Me episodes or go watch birds.  
Family Fun Idea:
Be Kindness Ninjas.  
How can you help right now?  Backpack drives?  Food banks? Refugees?  Neighbors? Mailing a card?  
Small acts of giving as a family every month model optimism, compassion, and perseverance for your kids.
