Gentle Parenting is Not Unboundaried Passivity

gentle parenting
Gentle parenting respects the needs of children as valid and worthy of being met, without dismissing the needs or boundaries of their parents.
Gentle parenting is developmentally appropriate guidance and support, not a lack of discipline.
Gentle parenting is expansive for parents, not self-minimising.
Gentle parenting creates confident, resilient individuals, not spoiled ones.
Gentle parenting is an active, effortful choice, not avoidant passivity.
Gentle parenting looks beyond surface level behaviour to understand what is happening emotionally within our kids, over and over again, for years on end, so they will feel safe when they are small and understand themselves when they are big.
Gentle parenting is hard, and so, so worth it.
