Planning YOUR slow moments so the magic of childhood appears 

Today we’re talking about planning for slowed down moments so that simple parenting and simple play happens.

What if…..what if you set out to find our own beat. Instead of following the herd, you adjusted to your family  and with your family…..and started planning  these slow moments. I’m sharing some practical tips and resources for making these small but significant changes in family life, play and family relationships.

Be brave….new mama

Be brave new mama

You’re about to be bombarded from all angles with advice from welcome sources ( like here because you came) and many places- unsolicited ( thank you lady in the supermarket for your advice about covering up my son’s toes – true story)

In there will be some juicy and just right information for you and you’ll learn to become a really good filter. But you’ve got to be brave.

There’s lots of new things to negotiate that seem to come from left field. Explaining to family why you gently parent or how to soothe your distressed baby- your way. You’ll make mistakes and feel bad but don’t let that be the end of your story. Be brave new mama.

I’m Melitsa and welcome if you’re new to Raising Playful Tots.  I have lots of audio chunks of simple parenting and simple play on the menu above. Look around and feel comfortable. I’ve recorded an audio for you. Just click on the button below to play and pause………. called Be brave new mama.  I have three things to be brave about.

I’m happy to be part of the New Mama blog hop. If you’re interested in working one on one establishing your family traditions, talking about your values and establishing your family. For a limited time I’m offering 5 people the chance to work one on one with me for free using the material from Module 1 of my ecourse- creating a family haven. Sign up before For more details on Module 1 go here.

If you’d like to take a place- email me through the contact form, up top and I’ll send you the details. It’ll be via Skype and over 4 sessions.

Being a first-time mama is an amazing experience. The New Mama Welcome Pack blog hop is a celebration of this life changing event! Follow the links to discover more unmissable advice, stories and essential tips.
