Parenting Tips for New Parents: Get a Puppy!

Parenting Tips for New Parents

“Get a puppy before you have kids, it’s great practise.”

Were you told this?

We were and we did adopt our furbaby before the human babies came along.

And honestly, sometimes those puppy days were harder than the baby days!

Do we really want to apply dog obedience training to our kids?

The way many of the parenting books, gurus, and experts out there want us to treat our babies is harsher than any dog obedience classes we ever did…

Mothers especially are subjected to so much advice on how to ‘train’ our babies…

“Don’t feed on demand, train them they only need milk every 3 hours.”

“Don’t feed to sleep, you’re training them to expect to always fall asleep like this.”

“Leave them to cry for 30 minutes, they will soon learn no one is coming and stop bothering.”

It never stops either once the baby years are through – toilet training, sleeping alone, academics… – is it any wonder so many kids have emotional issues and high anxiety? When do kids get to actually be kids?

This is why I am so passionate about bringing Parenting by Design to more families – it’s a beautiful and simple way to honour your child, speak their language and live in a mutually respectful family dynamic that lets everyone feel seen, loved and understood. It’s no magic solution to every problem but it comes pretty close.

I work with 4 families a month, so you get my personal attention, to help you understand your whole family’s Human Design and ways to integrate it into your family life. I personally coach and mentor you, and hold your hand the entire journey.

I offer a free 30 minute call for you to ask any questions about Human Design parenting and how we can work together.
