    Ep. 222 If Only...

    Discover the profound preciousness in every moment of your parenting journey.
    Even when reality differs from our expectations or when challenges arise, remember that each experience has a unique, inherent value.
    It's not always about getting it 'right' or making things 'better'. Sometimes, it's about sitting in the present, acknowledging the full spectrum of human experience, and opening our hearts to find the beauty in the complex dance of parenting.

    Ep. 221 Seeing Through Judgement

    Ep. 221 Seeing Through Judgement

    This week on Parenting Paused I'm delving deeper into the function of my judgments and how they serve me. What I discovered is that judgments often occur in the blink of an eye.
    After observing myself, I noticed that my judgments are like questioners, leading me back to myself. They can cover over the deeper wisdom I carry, especially as a parent.
    Instead of creating a whole story around a judgment, I suggest taking it inside, offering it kindness, and asking it a question. Then see if them as a reminder to turn back in and open your curiosity to what's happening in the present moment.

    Ep. 220 Do you Really Want Honesty?

    Ep. 220 Do you Really Want Honesty?

    Let's talk about honesty in parenting.
    We often strive to teach our children to be honest, but how do we react when their honesty conflicts with our comfort?
    This week in the Parenting Paused Podcast I explore how your reactions might inadvertently teach your children to tell white lies to keep you comfortable.
    Tune in as we reflect on the importance of truly hearing your children's honest expressions and consider where you might be slipping into little white lies of your own.
    Join us for this enlightening discussion! Listen here.

Total Game Changer!

Finding Purejoy Parenting set me and my family on a new path in life. I was a tired mom of 6 and had tried so many different ways ‘fix’ us that just added to the heap of guilt and shame I felt about my emotional melt downs- it wasn’t pretty. The gift of this work was finding myself in the midst of my parenting. Rather than seeing myself as the problem I began to see layers of trying to please others that were in the way of me open heartedly connecting with my children- that’s all we wanted. So grateful for this new format- that I can get short and poignant ongoing support to be present in the moment with my family! Thank you Purejoy Parenting!

Eye Opening & Life Changing

Leslie has changed my parenting behavior and I am so very grateful. Once you understand & begin practicing her processes things become so clear. One of my biggest learnings is that our little ones are not here to hurt us & frustrate us. They are learning to deal with the world and situations in the best way they know how. I have learned to be more calm & "pause" before reacting. Love the podcast! Thank you Leslie!

Reassuring

Hearing this podcast is reassuring that we may not know what to do or what is going on and not have the answer.we must be true to ourselves and learn to relate with love and not passing in the pain we have.
