Wholehearted Parenting – Can We Just Slow Down a Bit?

Remember Simon & Garfunkel’s lyrics…”slow down, you move too fast”? Well, it seems that life has only gotten faster since that song was written. In the busyness of life, we might be unaware of our frenetic pace . However, children are so aware and my work with them has given me a glimpse into their world. What I hear over and over again from children is that they want to spend more time with their parents and they wish that their parents weren’t so stressed.

Come join our conversation as we explore the importance of slowing down…something that is so necessary, in our busy lives, yet seems so hard to do. Well, I think that summer is the perfect time to slow down and relax…it’s also a great time to set new goals and intention for the rest of the year. I’ll be talking with Bernadette Noll, the co-founder of Slow Family Living. Bernadette is a writer, mother of four, and one-of-nine-children. She is the author of the book “Slow Family Living; 75 Simple Ways to Slow Down, Connect and Create More Joy”. Bernadette helps guide you to a slower and more joyful way to parent…one step at a time.

I hope you’ll take some time to slow down and join our conversation!
