Authentic Parenting

By Anna Seewald

Authentic Parenting is a show where we share ideas and strategies for personal growth in the practice of parenting. As we raise our children, we grow ourselves. We talk about the importance of being trauma-informed, making sense of our stories, breaking free from our patterns and triggers, finding our authentic voice in parenting, living our truth, befriending our emotions, managing stress, cultivating self-compassion, and mindfulness. It is by gaining deeper self- knowledge, raising our self-awareness, elevating our consciousness, getting closer to our authentic self that we support our children on that very same process of self discovery. New episodes air every Thursday.
