Hi! And welcome to The Peaceful Papa. This page is about my journey through Gentle / AP parenting.  Our journey began a little over 3 years ago (Aug. ’12) with the birth of DinoBoy; and subsequently SwirlyGirl (May ’15) . Since then, I’ve come to a grave understanding how physical punishment is harmful both mentally and physically to the child as well as the parent / child relationship. As I’ve gone further into this parenting gig a plethora of topics and personal growth have been touched upon. This page represents my personal growth as a parent as much as it does my opinions on parenting techniques. A few things I advocate for and discuss are:

  • Breast Feeding On-Demand
  • Bed-Sharing / Co-Sleeping
  • Gentle / Conscious Parenting
  • Respecting Autonomy

  1. Hey! I learned about your facebook page from “Freethink – Unschooling, Peaceful Parenting and Voluntaryism” From your facebook page I found your blog. This is some really good stuff. I then noticed you only have 4 followers. (I am going to assume that you would like to have more followers, let me know if I am misguided here)

    Do you tag your posts? I have found that nearly all of my followers come from people searching for posts with a certain tag on them, such as “Unschooling” or “Peaceful Parenting” etc. I think if you were to do this, you could significantly increase your exposure.

    Anyway, you have some great ideas, and I look forward to reading your posts.
