What is Conscious Parenting
Conscious Parenting is the awareness of self in the parenting journey. It’s knowing the power of your past and how it plays a role in the relationship with your family and child. It’s understanding how your own unmet needs, past wounds or childhood traumas, limiting beliefs systems and more effect the way you respond to your child’s unwanted behavior.
Conscious Parenting is when the focus isn’t solely on the child and their behavior, but when the parent owns what they bring to the relationship and is willing to look at it, become aware, and begin the healing journey.

What is Gentle Parenting?
Gentle parenting is a peaceful and positive approach to parenting that is different from the traditional authoritarian ‘old school’ parenting style. It is a parenting mind-set characterized by empathy, respect, understanding and boundaries. Often ‘gentle parenting’ is used interchangeable with the idea of ‘attachment parenting’, however the two parenting style are slightly different, but can be used alongside one another. Gentle parenting is a parenting style that promotes a relationship with your children based on willingness and choices, rather than demands and rules made by a parent.

What is Positive Parenting
Positive parenting is all about making child-rearing choices that reflect your beliefs and values as a parent, your child’s age and stage of development, and his or her temperament.
Positive parenting means taking an approach that is sensitive to children’s individual needs and addressing the typical challenges that arise in early childhood with empathy and respect.
