I love everything about this site. So much positivity about life and about being a mother that I just had to make a fence for The Joyful Mother. Enjoy!

In her own words:
“My dream is to impact the lives of women that do the most sacred of all work – mothering. I see YOUR power, I see my power and I see how by calling that forth, real happiness is effortless for both you and your family.
My passion is to wake women up! Wake them up to an understanding that they have real power over their lives and that their happiness is worth investing in!
Imagine a world where happy mama is a default experience, where we know what this means for each of us and know how to keep this alive and real in our lives. Imagine what kind of impact a tribe, a society of happy, balanced, whole mothers would have on society?!?”
”You can’t teach children to behave better by making them feel worse. When children feel better, they behave better.”

If you are like me and do not encourage candy in the house but still want the kids to experience the fun, meet Halloween Fairy. I read somewhere last year (can’t remember where but it stuck in my head) that one mom had this tradition in her house when kids were only allowed to have a few candies during Halloween, and the rest they put in their bags and left outside in the evening for the Fairy. And in the morning they had nice gifts waiting for them, from the Fairy of course. I loved it and trying it for the first time this year now that my child is old enough to trick or treat. I think it is a wonderful tradition and I love that we don’t have to fight about the candy. And what kid doesn’t like fairies and gifts?
One thing that drives me mad is abuse I witness in life and from the news sources regularly. It makes me want to scream, it makes me want to do something, it made me start my page to educate people about other alternatives to common practices that are WRONG. Child abuse is probably the worst crime anyone can commit in my belief system. Thank you to Action Against Abuse for fighting against it.

I wish Teacher Tom could be my kids’ teacher when they are old enough to start their education. Or even better, I wish we had schools like that everywhere. You will especially enjoy his work if you work with children, and if you are a parent – be jealous (in a good way).

In his own words: “I am a preschool teacher, writer, artist and the author of “A Parent’s Guide To Seattle.” For the past 10 years, I’ve been the only employee of the Woodland Park Cooperative preschools. The children come to me as 2-year-olds in diapers and leave as “sophisticated” 5-year-olds ready for kindergarten”
When the going gets tough… you turn to Parenting. Illustrated with Crappy Pictures, my friends. YES to looking at parenting through the “sense of humor” lens. After all, if you don’t laugh at it, then you won’t be able to see clearly what wonderful kid/kids you have been blessed with. Highly recommended for parents and those who want to laugh at our expense.
