About the Big Picture Parent Blog
The energy behind this blog is to cast a brighter light on our role as parents, so that we can mindfully and purposefully create the most solid foundation for our children's lives. We must start looking at parenting in a big picture way because the patterns and experiences our children live day in and day out create the lens in which they experience their adult lives. Everything starts with us and yes, that is scary as hell and very overwhelming to think about. However, this is the job we signed up for. We are to guide our young into becoming competent adults who can survive and thrive in our world. There are many people who are simply surviving. What I want to accomplish is to help people not only survive, but truly thrive and embrace this beautiful gift we call life. This means really looking at what we need as human beings to be content, solid, happy, and competent and then looking at the action steps to get there. And the most important place to start is at the beginning of someone's life and the most important person to help set this in motion is the parent. So, join me on this beautiful, deep, and complex journey in becoming a Big Picture Parent.
