    Hi Kate,

    Thank you thank you thank you for sharing all about respectful parenting & your experiences with your daughters! I just had a rough week with my two children, age 3.5 & 1.5. The more I read, the more I feel that I have not done the right things with my kids. But it is a good wake up call definitely! I am trying to change my parenting style. However one question I do have for now, is it too late to implement RIE now that my daughter is 3.5? Is it still possible for my 3.5 year old to unlearn all the bad habits which she had picked up from me, like yelling or snatching toys from her brother? :'(

    Thank you in advance Kate!

      Hi Nad. It is never too late to implement respectful parenting practices. It is just a little harder. My eldest was 18 months when we learned of RIE. It has been hard work to change our own behaviours and help our daughters become used to the new expectations.
      My advice is to take it slowly so you all get used to small changes before implementing another. it can be overwhelming otherwise.
      Talk to your children about the changes you are making and why. Make amends for anything you are sorry for doing in the past by apologising and letting them know you are going to try something different.
      Please sing out if I can support you in any way. You mention yelling and snatching toys so they might be a good place to make your start!
      xx Kate

    Hello, I am in need of help with my baby. I am trying to have her nap in her crib verses my arms. I love holding her, yet I have bursitis in my shoulder…..I feel that I am not an adequate mother, especially after visiting my folks this Thanksgiving…..Can you please suggest some resources. Many thanks.

    I would love to know who wrote the article about “Why Teenagers Don’t Talk to their Parents”. It is one of my all time favorite reads I go to as a parent and a teacher.
