What gets you through the really tough parenting moments?

'Everything's gonna be alright'

Welcome everyone to the second Nurtured Babies: Naturally gathering for this year which is on Wednesday 22 March at the Matariki Rudolf Steiner Kindergarden (next to Terrace End School), Palmerston North, NZ at 1.30-3.30pm.  We had such a great gathering and talk on Co-sleeping last month, and for mamas with babes on the move, the new premises are a wonderful place to relax knowing that the little ones can have their freedom and do not need to have mums watchful eyes and attention drawn away from the gathering quite so much as when we had it at the Library.

Next month we hope to be having some experienced parents come and chat about ‘unschooling’ or perhaps ‘alternative schooling options’, what do you think?    This month we are having a general get together and chat about what gets you through the really tough parenting moments.  This will mean different things to different people, and the experienced sharing will be a wonderful way to gain new knowledge and tools for assisting us all in moments yet to come.

‘Nurtured Babies: Naturally’ Co-Sleeping! Sharing the love?

Co-sleeping! Sharing the love?

The first ‘Nurtured Babies: Naturally’ get-together for the year is on Thursday 23 March, 1.30-3.30pm at Matariki Rudolf Steiner Kindergarten, 187 Ruahine Street, Palmerston North, NZ.  The topic up for discussion is Co-Sleeping.  What is it?  How is it defined?  Why would I do it?  What’s in it for me?  What’s in it for baby?  Is my bed big enough?  How do you get enough sleep?  Where does your sex life go?

If you have wonderings or experience that you would like to share then please come along and join us to learn more about this wonderful idea.  Please bring a gold coin donation for the venue.  If you have the time and energy feel free to bring some food along to share.
