Little Humans – The Advice You’ve Been Waiting For As A Parent

by Madilyn Smith February 22, 2020

When The Going Gets Tough…

It’s not uncommon to hear about how parenting is the single most important job in the world – but there’s not a lot of talk about how TOUGH it actually is. And more importantly, there’s not a whole lot of help out there to help you out as a mum or dad, either.

You don’t catch a break from parenting. It’s a 24-hour job, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, and for at least 18 years, you’re totally responsible for the life of another human.

At first, there are the midnight feedings to do, later there are the soccer practices to drop your them off at, the teenage angst and blaring unsavory music to deal with…

…and meanwhile, you’re just trying to keep your head above water.

Sorry – There’s No Magic Manual

What’s worse is that there’s no manual for being a good parent.

Sure, we could take a technique or two from our own parents, but times have changed. Things are COMPLETELY different now. Our kids are certainly not growing up in the same environment we did. Back then, we didn’t have issues like technology overload or childhood anxiety, did we?

So as parents, how on earth do we navigate this? How do we keep it together on a personal level, and at the same time do a good job of raising our children?

Let’s Have Each Other’s Backs Here!

The best answer? Let’s learn from each other. Together, we’re definitely stronger.

That’s why, here at Mindvalley, we gathered together 15 of today’s best, globally celebrated parenting experts and asked them for their advice. And it goes beyond just surviving as parents. We wanted to find out how we could THRIVE as mums and dads and discover what it really takes to be genuinely good at it.

We wanted to create the BIGGEST shift in conscious parenting the world has ever seen.
