it is a journey

Welcome to Growing the Whole Child, a blog site devoted to offering simple parenting in complex times.

The world is not the same as it was when we were children. Gone are the days of drinking out of the garden hose and coming home when the streetlights turned on.  It is a different world today. And yet the ultimate parenting wish remains the same: to help our children be happy, healthy, and successful- to grow the whole child- the mind, body, and soul.

Parenting is not an easy job. Growing the whole child takes energy, patience, time, forgiveness, organization, love, and support. This blog site is intended to offer you support on your parenting journey. Here you will find ideas, tips, ramblings and answers to parenting questions.

Take a look around. Enjoy Growing the Whole Child- it’s a journey.
