Being a parent is a big job and a big deal, you are responsible for another human and I personally don’t take that job lightly. I always want to be a better mama and I know that the only way I can do that is if I keep growing with my children. That is why I’ve invited Dr. Tina Payne Bryson — psychotherapist, author, and mother of three boys — to share with us her deep knowledge and personal experience on conscious parenting. This episode is filled with the best conscious parenting strategies, so much love, compassion and so many valuable lessons that you don’t want to miss. Pop in and listen to how you can truly *show up* for your children, the 4 S’s (which have become the cornerstone of the way I parent), and how to be the best and most conscious parent you can be.
