A Note from Lelia 


People often ask me why I'm interested in parenting. It's wellness I'm interested in - the peace, protection, prosperity, and progress of humanity, within our reach. 


Gentle Parenting is not a fad. It's how everybody prefers to be treated. It's how children learn best and deserve to be led. It's how adults heal a wounded inner child and grow a wholehearted adult self.

We carry our childhood into our adulthood. It’s an extension, not a replacement. Our selfhood is forever developing. An important role of parent education is guiding adults to gently re-parent themselves from the inside out. 

Learning how to raise ourselves and children without criticism, punishment, shame, and blame can be challenging, and at the same time, deeply comforting. Breaking unhealthy relationship patterns requires awareness and new skills. 


When people feel empowered with new skills and greater awareness, they replace control with connection, transforming a power-based parenting paradigm into an empowered parenting paradigm.


By extending gentleness to the child within, we can extend gentleness to the child in front of us. This practice strengthens the adult we aspire to be and the adults our children will become.

Perhaps if angry little girls were heard instead of silenced, there wouldn’t be so many hurting women struggling to understand and love themselves.


Perhaps if tearful little boys were comforted instead of shamed, there wouldn’t be so many angry men struggling to express and empathize with emotion. 


And vice versa.


Perhaps if vulnerable children were protected instead of exploited, there wouldn’t be so many armoured people struggling to be connected and authentic.


Children need to feel all their emotions without fear of rejection or pressure to protect a parent to mature into their healthiest true self.


Being hard on children does not make them stronger. People are strengthened through compassion and understanding, regardless of gender or age.
