Sharing Sunday

Sharing Sunday

It’s Sunday again!  We had a wonderful family weekend with water play, swimming, dancing, swinging in beach-towels and eating popsicles.

Tomorrow is Spank Out Day USA – I’ll be posting something on some untruths about spanking and offering a list of alternatives as well as links to other sites that are participating in Spank Out Day.

Also coming up this week an opportunity (giveaway!) to connect with a life coach and learn more about the importance of taking time for yourself. Plus a new post with ideas for coping with toddler clingy-ness.

And now onto Sunday Sharing: Three great reads on positive parenting & motherhood.

Alfie Kohn shares fantastic insights in a recent article: In short, the best parents acknowledge the needs of their children (as distinct from their own), learn all they can about those needs and are committed to meeting them whenever possible. And those of us who find it a struggle to do these things most of the time… need to make a point of struggling to do these things most of the time. Read more here.

Becky has a wonderful message about the positives of positive parenting in a recent post. From the article: The coolest thing about giving up conventional parenting and just resting in the relationship you cultivate with your child is that, through this relationship comes real influence, through your example comes discipline, and suddenly you find that parenting is joyful again, without all the hard work.  Read more  The “Positive” in Positive Parenting

Miriam from The Other Baby Book blog shares some interesting thoughts on modern day motherhood. From her post:I’m concerned by this idea that modern or attached motherhood is setting back the feminist movement. For me, and for many of my generation, the lasting gift of feminism is the right to choose what we do with our lives: the right to self-determination. Not the right to sit in a cubicle all day, then pick up our child from day care and call ourselves liberated. Not the right to hate your life as you wash cloth diapers and puree baby food because someone told you that’s what “good” mothers do.  Read more on  Motherhood: is it holding mothers back?
