I want to be that mother who can stand up and say I am a strong confident mother and I know what is best for my children. We breastfeed and co sleep, We listen, We include, We eat chocolate and snot smoothies, we trampoline and grow frogs, we sling, we carry and we try and understand and work with our children without resorting to punishments, threats or coercion.

Makes no sense. Or does it?

It's about more than gun control laws. It's about more than 'mental health crazies' with guns. It about the brass tacks of connection and bonding. It goes right back to the womb. It goes beyond. It's about broken continuums and broken lives. It's about breaking the cycle. It's about changing the tone.

It's about not using violent coercive threatening punishing ways to raise our children. Its not about being more disciplined with time outs and spankings and threats of depravity.

It's about finding the compassion. Making the connection. Taking the time. Sharing the responsibility. Supporting each other and knowing your boundaries.
