Hello + welcome to this tiny space on the internet! I created this blog (+ changed the name twice since) 14 years ago as a creative outlet from my career in the emergency room as a PA. After spending the past 7 (or so) years on social media outlets, I have decided to delete all of the ones associated with this blog and get back to the heart of blogging.

There are as many ways to parent as there are parents in the world, but is there a “right” way to parent. Of course that answer is no, but there are definitely ways to parent that help meet your children where they are. Both developmentally and emotionally. No matter what, parenting is hard, but sometimes it’s easier to navigate those challenges with responsive parenting.
Liz Luize is an educator, daycare owner, and M.Ed in Learning, Cognition, and Development. After becoming a mom, she found her mission to empower parents with research-driven insights to boost their children’s cognitive and emotional growth. Through her Instagram page, she offers a blend of scientifically-backed parenting tips and real talk, dedicated to nurturing the holistic development of tiny humans.
Listen as Liz shares more about what responsive parenting is, what it isn’t, how she’s applied it both at home and in the classroom, and how it compares to some of the other parenting styles you hear about. Again, there is no one right way to parent and we’re all going to make mistakes. So no matter what style of parenting you choose to employ, give yourself, and your children, grace.
In this episode, we discuss:
What responsive parenting is
How parents can strike a balance between setting boundaries and being responsive to their child’s needs in discipline
