If you have read some of my parenting rants such as Is he a good baby? and Sleep training, you will know that I am not one for believing in tough love and wanted to share Eve’s post from Freddie and I x
I’m passionate about children being set boundaries without being scared that if they mess up they will get threatened or smacked.
I’m passionate about parents using their instincts, if more parents used their instincts then less children would be physically and emotionally punished.
I’m passionate about advocating babies and children’s human rights. (yes, smacking them and leaving them to cry are ignoring their human rights.)
I’m passionate about helping mums who are struggling. It’s okay to mess up sometimes, and it’s okay for your child to witness it; we are only human.
I’m passionate about providing new mums with correct information about breastfeeding.
I’m passionate about loving our children, putting them first, they are the future of our world.
I’m passionate about putting an end to neglectful parenting such as smacking and Cry-It-Out, their future is in our hands and if we don’t love them unconditionally and treat them with respect then they won’t treat anyone with respect.
I’m passionate about being a role model to children. Children copy adults, if they see us smacking and hurting others then they will think it’s okay. If they see us being mean to one another then they will think it’s okay.
I’m passionate about getting rid of these hypocrisy so called parenting methods. There is nothing okay about using physical violence and emotional violence to punish someone for doing something ‘wrong’. It’s hypocritical and confusing.
I’m passionate about spreading factual information instead of people using anecdotal evidence. You may have turned out ‘fine’, but many many people haven’t and many many children won’t.
