CHAOS

Chaos…

Truth be told, that is what my husband thought was going to happen when I told him four years ago that I planned to change the way “parenting” happened in our household.

No punishment. No rewards. No shaming. No bribing. No “RULES”. No yelling. No controlling.

Our kids were 2 & 4 at the time and he was SURE they were going to “take over and go wild”.

He agreed to “try it” but he was skeptical!

He was wrong… (and he will happily admit it, right Brian?)

Yes, to some, what we “gave up” doing may seem impossible…

But as I see it, we gave up guilt, frustration, and feeling bad (for everyone).

Now we connect, we celebrate, we talk, we set limits, and we live in alignment with our values…

Everyone has a voice…
Everyone has feelings…
Everyone “messes up” sometimes…
And everyone learns from those “mess ups”…

We are very real… and sometimes it feels “messy”
But it always feels “right” :)

This isn’t chaos… this is freedom <3
