Connection is the sweetest part of parenting. It’s what makes all those late nights and challenging moments melt away. Wednesday, December 11, I am excited and honored to share my Connection workshop with fellow parents at Micheltorena Street Elementary School. There are two sessions - after drop off in the morning at 8:30 and after pick up in the evening at 6:15. Please use the Sign Up Genius to let me know how many children to expect for the evening session - yes, there’s pizza and childcare if you sign up. I look forward to connecting with you there! #chooseloveparenting #chooselove #parentworkshops #connectioncreatescooperation #peacefulparenting #micheltorenaelementary

Beating your child into submission is not discipline. Neither is using manipulation or fear. Call it an unpopular parenting opinion if you must but abuse is abuse. . . While a lot of us were raised with this way of parenting it does not mean we turned out “fine”. Hi, my childhood was built on abuse and I am not ok. Also, not using abuse as punishment does not mean your child will grow up to be disrespectful, if anything they will grow up to resent you. Hitting your child because they need to “respect” you just sounds absurd. Do you do this to your boss or coworkers?? I think not. . . You know what spanking really does but is ignored: emotional and physical abuse, mental health problems, increased aggression, resentment, depression, trust issues, neglect, teaches kids bullying is ok, etc It also teaches them that you’re a hypocrite 🤷🏽‍♀️, tell them not to hit others while hitting them. . . Spanking is a widely debated subject. But why should we still be debating whether or not to abuse our children? Why not raise emotionally healthy children instead. . . . . . #gentleparenting #gentleparenting_memes #thegentleparent #positiveparenting #positivepsychology #positiveparentingsolutions #peacefulparenting #respectfulparenting #respectchildren #childrensfeelingsmatter #childhoodabuse #childabuseawareness #nospanking #stopabusingchildren #antispanking #parenthood_moments #parenthood_unveiled #honestmotherhood #motherhoodrising #motherhoodinspired #twinmom #parentingwithoutpunishment #parentingispolitical #unpopularparenting #radicalparenting

10. J for Joy Joy is not a destination, it's a path we choose. A brave and vulnerable choice. At first glance, it seems parenthood is all about joy. There are many reasons to be joyful as a parent. Our babies are bundles of joy, our kids are our greatest joy in life. Joy is something we’re all seeking. The time we have with our kids is fleeting, a season in their and our lives. We want to spend it joyfully, for our relationships to be joyful so that they’ll remember their childhood fondly and come home often. Yet maybe sometimes everyday parenthood doesn't feel joyful at all. The demands of raising kids, work-family-life balance, exhaustion and overwhelm can leave us feeling anything but joyful and wondering whether the joy of parenthood passed us by somewhere between the sleepless nights and struggling to juggle the seemingly conflicting needs of a growing family. Here’s what I’ve learned: Joy is in the small, ordinary, everyday moments. You get to choose joy! Joy is a brave and vulnerable choice. More in the Connecting with Kids ABC Holiday Calendar.

This is so very true! It's easy to begin preaching only to be met with "But you did....".⁠ .⁠ And then comes the difficult part: to get down from the preacher's chair and view your own behavior for what it is.⁠ .⁠ It's easier said than done, especially if your frustrated, annoyed or angry.⁠ .⁠ How do you handle this?⁠ .⁠ .⁠ #intentionalparenting #parentingmoments #parentingunfiltered #mindfulparenting #parentingskills #respectfulparenting #earlylearning101 #peacefulparenting #consciousparenting #gentleparenting #parentingdoneright #positiveparenting #happyparenting #realmom #parentinggoals #raisethemright #rawmotherhood #momprobs #parentingquotes #realmotherhood #momtruth #parentinglife

Most days Paisley loves playing on her own. She's very content and loves to manipulate a couple of teething toys she has and a stuffed giraffe. She is exploring lately by rolling over and putting things in her mouth so often she doesnt want to be held, it interferes with her movement. I got used to this. My days are typically productive as I move around the house and chat with her but ultimately have my body free to do what I need to. . . Yesterday I was reorganizing the kitchen. . . Paisley had an off day. The day before we had a photoshoot and a trip to the mall and we had people moving fridges in and out of our house so every feeding and nap was off schedule and often interrupted. She was patient all day while it happened but the next day she was tired, frustrated more easily and wanted some more 1 on 1 time. . . In my desire to complete my task I noticed myself becoming triggered by her grunting noises. She can roll over but cant get back on her back so she spends all of her tummy time grunting trying to flip back over. I have to help her flip back over every few minutes when she gets to maximum frustration and has had enough. This was challenging for me as I just really wanted order back in my kitchen! . . I realized after some time that I was denying the inevitable. She needed me. I finally surrendered. We sat together on the floor, I fed her in my arms and she fell asleep peacefully in my lap. We had a snuggle and the mess waited until my husband was home and could help. . . Lesson learned, sometimes the adult things need to be paused. Sometimes we need to surrender. Sometimes we cant be efficient. And that is okay. . . Posted @withrepost@elizabethpantley Don't let your desire to 'Get Things Done' or 'Be On Time' interfere with the compassion and love you have for your child. ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #askelizabethpantley #nocrysolution #positiveparenting #gentleparenting #attachmentparenting #gentleparent #naturalparenting #mindfulparenting #peacefulparenting #consciousparenting #parentingmeme #parentingquote #gentleparenting_memes #positiveparentingmemes #parentingmemes #parentingmeme #motherhood #mothering

“Instead of...I’m the adult, so you should listen. Think...I’m the adult so I should listen. Remember...You’re the one with the maturity to exercise and model patience while you wait to be heard, wisdom in how you express yourself, self-control in response to challenges, understanding when conflicts arise, and calm when big emotions threaten to overwhelm. It’s how we behave, not how we demand our children to behave, that has the most impact on who they will become. You’re the only adult in the relationship. Act like the adult you want them to become.” L.R.

Dear diary, we are back home and it stopped raining for a minute so we drove up into the mountains to our favorite Christmas tree farm. @patchen.trees The girls got to experience what it was like to be IN a cloud for the very first time... although they didn’t believe that it was basically just mist 😆 they’d always imagined it so much fluffier. I remember wanting to sleep in a cloud when I was little too. 😍 Because we are still on a different time zone, we woke up at 5am got organized and cleaned the house and got to the farm by 9am. The fire wasn’t crackling yet but the Christmas music was playing and the cider was a child-friendly level of hot. Everything was just right... except we forgot the kids coats 🤦‍♀️ so I took turns carrying Cali and Avy in my snuggly coat. Eventually Cali discovered a “baby Christmas tree” on the ground. It was a tiny piece of a branch. A few minutes later she got bored of it and said, “Goodbye little tree” and dropped it on the ground. She was no longer interested. When it landed, Avy seized the moment and collected it as her own treasure. Cali screamed. “I was just dropping it to see if it would bounce!” she cried. And then she screamed and screamed some more. Nobody was at the farm yet but I was afraid she might wake the owners still probably resting in their cabin. I carried her to the car and let her cry and cry and cry. I told Dev and Avy to pick out whatever tree they wanted... my only request was that it smelled like Christmas. I figured this would be a while... and it was 😐 Cali has had a hard time letting people use any of her things. We don’t force her at all, but when she decides to share or give something away I’m trying to teach her she can’t take it right back. It’s been a learning process. At home upstairs everything is for everyone but in their rooms they can keep “special things.” When friends come they put away any treasures to avoid conflict. I know some families do things differently where everything is fair game, but I don’t think that resembles real life where as adults we don’t have to share everything (cell phones for example). In the end Avy gave her the tree back and found a new one for herself. 🎄🙏

There is a misconception in Christian parenting that compelling obedience in childhood will produce adults who are obedient to Christ. Based on this idea, parents come up with catchy phrases like "Obedience is doing what I say, when I say it, with a happy heart." Or "Obedience the first time, every time." When we examine Scripture, we see not only does our definition of obedience go above and beyond what Scripture teaches (which is legalism) but the idea behind it is rooted in really bad theology. Obedience to Christ is the *work* of Christ in us. Throughout both the Old and New Testaments we see that on our own we cannot obey God, and that it is the work of the Holy Spirit in our hearts. As parents, we must shift our focus from teaching obedience through compelled, coerced, and forced obedience (which really isn't obedience at all) to modeling obedience and giving Christ the glory for it. When we observe our children's disobedience let it remind us of how hard obedience is - it is so hard we can't do it ourselves! We need the help of the Holy Spirit to guide us and lead us, and change our hearts! GRACE-BASED PARENTING TEACHING MOMENT: When our children disobey, instead of punishing them, respond with "I can tell you're having a hard time obeying. I'm going to help you obey." And with gentle firmness, provide the help they need to follow directions. Later, bring up that moment. "Hey, remember earlier when you needed help obeying? You know how I knew you needed help? Because sometimes *I* need help obeying, and God helps me to obey Him. It can be really hard to do things you don't want to do, can't it? Jesus loves us so much that He helps us obey Him even when it is hard, just like I helped you earlier! What do you think about that?" #gentleparenting #positiveparenting #gracebasedparenting #responsiveparenting #respectfulparenting #christianparenting #gentlemama #peacefulparenting #nonpunitiveparenting #letthembelittle #motherhood #motherhoodunplugged
