A Welcome Message!
Updated: Feb 17, 2020
Hello all mamas, papas, and caregivers!
Sivanne here, aka The Joyous Parent, here to say hello and welcome you to this space. It has been a lifelong dream of mine to create and nurture a *parenthood community* of support, guidance, and connection, one where there are no wrong questions, there are no wrong answers, and there is simply LOVE.
I want you to know something right here right now: no matter where you are on your parenthood journey, you are AMAZING! There is absolutely nothing (nothing!) you could do in your parenting that could be judged as long as you are doing it from a place of truth, honesty, and love. Love for your child(ren), yes. But also love for yourself. For your community. For this planet. Our world.
And after working with hundreds of children and parents as a progressive educator in a myriad of settings, my almost two decades of work have helped me unearth patterns that can either lead us towards the breakdown of our parenting hopes & desires or towards a most fulfilling, peaceful, and confident parenthood. And lucky for you, I have worked meticulously to develop a *Four Phase Parenthood Methodology* that can get you closer to the type of parenthood you have always desired.
Everyone has their moments but everyone also has their beauty. So! If you are a parent or caregiver of a child or children of the soft years--those precious, precocious, creative, crucial, incredible, frustrating, blessed first 5 years of life--you have come to the right place! Through this beautiful and budding community and also with my parenthood coaching practice, I am dedicated to providing the guidance, knowledge, and support you need to get through it all...with your truth, beauty and unique blueprint. But I will not be giving you answers. I am just a mama and educator like so many others out there. And you know so much about doing this parenting thing right already.
If not answers, what I WILL attempt to give you here, and through my personal coaching, workshops, and pocket guides and more is a lifeline of tips, real talk, ideas, insights, connection, nurture, developmental knowhow and more that will help YOU harness your own, precious and powerful inner wisdom so that you may visualize and actualize your best version of what your parenthood can be.
This is a space for ALL you parents out there. For those who feel alone in this. For those who think they're doing pretty good. For those who have no idea what they're doing. For all those in between. I've got your back. You are held with love. No judgement. Only openness, understanding, true listening and a celebration of who you already are.
The peacock symbolizes vision, spirituality, awakening, guidance, protection, & watchfulness. In Greco-Roman mythology the Peacock tail has the "eyes" of the stars. In Hinduism, the Peacock is associated with Lakshmi who represents patience, kindness and luck. May the joyous parent that is already in you shine with unabounding inner wisdom, confidence, and peace just as the peacock's feathers shine their halo with pride.
With light, from my home to yours, Sivanne
