Mindful Parenting Collaboration

Beginning October 21st McCrenshaw's Newest Thoughts and it’s OK will be co-hosting a Mindful Parenting Collaboration.

What it is:
This collaboration is based on The Parenting Passageway's 20 Days Toward More Mindful Mothering from 2009, recently followed Hybrid Rasta Mama and others as Mindful Mothering Challenge.

It was originally done as one concept per day to consider in examining your parenting and how to make it more conscious, loving and effective. Hybrid Rasta Mama spends more time working through the concepts, spending roughly a week on each one. 

We thought we'd spend two weeks on each one, to allow us time to consider the concept, apply it to our parenting, write about our experience, and read other people's results as well.

We invite you to join us!

How it works:
One week, we'll post and discuss a concept to consider, invite you to set a personal goal relating to it, and share our goals. The next week, we'll post our results of working with our goal, and invite you to link up your own results. 

(If you've done the challenge in the past, you're welcome to link up your posts on the appropriate week as well!)

We'll explore 20 aspects of mindful parenting, such as gentle discipline, realistic expectations, rhythm, nature, working through the body, and inner work.

How conscious is your parenting?
