Guiding Vs. Programming

Podcast cover
Read more

 It may seem easiest to just plug our kids into our own values and ways of moving through the world. But if we want our kids to be able to make good choices in our absence and to develop into the truest and fullest version of themselves, it is essential that we avoid the "because I said so" approach (programming) and instead encourage their ability to ask questions and understand why they "should" do anything.

Dressing Our Kids for Success

Podcast cover
Read more

Join Joe and Anea as they discuss conscious parenting when it comes to how we dress our children. In spite of good intentions, we frequently limit the ability of our children (especially our girls) to move through the world actively, freely and safely by dressing them in clothes that either literally make it difficult to fully engage in play and exploration of the world and/or send strong messages about what makes them 'acceptable' as either girls or boys. Then, as our kids move into their adolescent years, the way in which we 'police' their clothing can do damage in a whole other set of ways.
