Keeping with this month’s theme of switching things up, the Authentic Parenting Blog Carnival, co-hosted by Mandy at Living Peacefully with Children and Laura at Authentic Parenting, is hosting a blog hop this month on a very important topic: parenting in the light of your own childhood. Our experiences, good and bad, shape who we are. We can choose to continue something or to make changes. We want everyone to speak up about how you have chosen to parent based on how you were parented. Tell us about how you are consciously and authentically parenting in relation to your own childhood experiences. We know this can be a touchy subject, so if you have a new post you would like hosted on another site, please e-mail us and we would be happy to find a blog to host you, anonymously or otherwise. By addressing issues of the past, we can choose to make a bright future. Simply add your post, new or old, to the convenient linky tool below before October 25, 2013.
We understand that many of these posts may touch on emotionally difficult subjects as we explore our own upbringing. However, as advocates of gentle and respectful parenting, we do ask that your posts not advocate in favor of violence toward others or non-gentle parenting practices.
Blog hops are a great way to generate blog traffic and build a supportive community. Your blog will receive links from many other blogs and you and your readers will have the opportunity to discover other blogs with similar goals in mind. Please join us as we embrace Authentic Parenting! We hope you will consider joining us every month as we discuss ways to bring authenticity into our lives and our parenting.
