I read this somewhere recently and copied it and I had yet to post it... but it is so true and how I feel.
I have come to believe in organic learning, respectful parenting and joy seeking. I believe that children should be treated with respect and consideration. I believe that people can be trusted to discover and learn on their own, with facilitation rather than dictation. I believe that yelling, hitting, shaming, love withdrawal and judgement have no place in a healthy relationship. I believe that worry is wasted energy and fear is misdirected energy.
