When we look at our first sweet baby we have the highest intentions for our family. Fast forward a few years and a lifetime of experiences our intentions have wavered. We’re doing more of something we thought originally we wouldn’t do. We’re on a path that we’re not happy with.
Today we’re taking small steps and deliberate decisions so we parent on purpose. Finding our way as a family and keeping agile, modifying our systems to suit our ever changing situations instead of rooted and bound to one system we once tried.
There’s that tool, phrase, system or habit you’ve read about but how can you find a way for this to happen in your family?
Wouldn’t it be good to have some clear steps to help you become the intentional family you want?
Judgement free place where you can explore what’s working, what’s not and what you want? Imagine becoming a more intentional family. Parenting on purpose
