“Human love begins in utero, is carried through pregnancy, birth and the postnatal nurturance of bonding…yet the most critical, formative relationship – the relationship between mother and infant…is not valued, nurtured or supported by our culture” Magical Parent, Magical Child Mendizza & Pearce
Home Roots is about Nourishing Emerging Families
When I moved from the realm of educator to parent I noticed gaps in areas of support as I came to a deeper understanding of what it is to raise children. I created Home Roots to help nourish families, to support young learners in planting roots and unfolding at their own pace. Home Roots provides inspiration for daily rhythms, holding space for motherhood as meditation and nourishing the curiosity of young learners.
Our earliest experiences lay the foundations for future patterns of behavior. Loving relationships, nurturing environments, time spent in nature, freedom to play – all things fundamental to the development of young children. I support parents and educators in creating nourishing learning environments and experiences that foster the innate curiosity children are born with. Through downloadable guides, resources and consulting I work to support the unfolding of the whole child. You can become a monthly subscriber on Patreon and gain access to exclusive nature based learning resources, updated monthly. Join me in #littlenaturejournal project or purchase a resource via Etsy.
Slow Family Living
Looking after children in any capacity can feel challenging and chaotic. Leaning into slow living can provide the foundation that you need in your home or classroom to feel present, to respond to the needs of young people with patience and love. This is how I have maintained my own sense of balance in the wild ride that is parenting. I regularly write about slow living practices and how to approach parenting as meditation. Check out the blog for ideas and inspiration or join me on Patreon for resources available for download.
