Healthy living, healthy parenting, healthy gardening. One Family's approach to off grid living.

My post post post modern definitive guide to parenting

So here is the thing.

Kids? They are just people.

What do you mean, just people?

That’s it, they are just people.

How do you know?

I dunno, I guess my Mum told me or something like that.

So, they are really just people? 

Totally just people.

So how do we treat them?

Like people.

You know- like someone who will remember and ruminate on your relationship for the rest of their lives.  Like they are conscious beings.  Like they are really nice crazy people who happen to live with you, but you aren’t afraid of them.  Like you want your teenagers to treat you.  Like they have feelings, and opinions that matter.

They

are

just

people.

fragile, beautiful, loving, moody, inconsiderate, ugly, hateful, forgiving, people.
