Up to this point in history, children have been seen as less than and parented in a way that uses power over a child. Most of us were parented in this way but there is a shift in thinking about the way we raise our kids.

Its no secret we parent differently than most people. Inevitably, when that happens, we set ourselves up to be seen and to be judged. Ugh, the thought of being judged still gets me, but it’s real.

In the middle of a meltdown, when your ears are about to burst, and your patience is worn thin, it’s hard to know what to do.
