Freedom to Be Afraid

My newest Natural Parenting article was published on Essence of Life yesterday.
It's called Freedom to Be Afraid, it's about giving children the support and space they need to overcome their fears in their own way and in their own time.
Mostly it's about how Littletree copes with fear, and how she is overcoming her fear of water.
I'm also still keeping the forum going on EOL, so check it out.


  1. love LOVE your "Freedom" piece, m'dear! S is a lucky LittleTree to have such a wise mama.

  2. Thanks for the link, I'll definitely check it out

  3. LOVE it! Brilliant writing, and I can just imagine LittleTrees sweet voice squeling "I'M FINE!!!!"
    Very well written!

  4. I really enjoyed reading you freedom piece. JJ is on a similar journey with his fear of water.... while he watches his fearless in water mermaid sister from the safety of the top step. Little Tree is an amazing little person, I find her very clear... She has made a truely wise choice of mother and father too :) xx

  5. Beautiful writting! I'm so happy I stumbled upon your blog!

  6. Way to go Little Tree! And way to be such a respectful supporter of your daughter and her fear. Great story, thanks for sharing. :)


Thanks for your lovely words, witty banter and entertaining discussion :)
