Wholesome Parenting: Paving a Brighter and Kinder Future with Our Children
Parents thrive when we have insight into better parenting practices, when we feel empowered by our actions. Our families thrive when we find a healthy, harmonious balance between raising children and living our busy lives, often full of pressing obligations. This guide was written to provide that peace of mind. Learn how to get to the heart of matters with your children, improving your own sense of parenting, benefiting the development of your child, creating special bonds and memories that will last long-term, and letting go of the worn-out parenting methods of the past.

This guide will walk you through multiple topics that every parent, guardian, and child care provider should know including parenting styles of adults, temperament styles of children and how each one affects how they approach and respond to the world around them, developmental stages for children ages newborn through five, the effects of stress in childhood, how to encourage play-based learning, peaceful and effective communication to help children *want* to listen, attachment styles, age appropriate activities for the typically developing newborn through five year old, the significance of consistency, resilience, connection, and much more

"Wholesome parenting contains the philosophy that knowing more about healthy parenting means we can provide more as parents to our children and families; it intends to offer a more complete view of raising grounded, nourished, and happy kids. Wholesome parenting means approaching our parenting practice from a more well-rounded understanding of what children need from us to support them in becoming their healthiest and happiest selves. It means we intentionally put as much of our hearts into this process as possible, while working to leave our ego, fears, and past traumas outside the door of our relationships with our children. It means being able to look at our parenting from as many angles as possible. It means bringing our whole self to the table. Wholesome parenting is trustworthy, safe, patient, kind, consistent, playful, joyful, and connected. I'll explain how."

We need our children just as much as they need us. It's time to show them what that means. This book will show you how
