So, I’ve been stewing about a constellation of things lately…possible sea changes around here, fine tuning, redirecting, and so on. And, happily, this Friday and Saturday I will be here at the terrific Empowered To Connect Conference. I went last year and it was amazing. So good. I’m due for a refresher on it all…and I’m excited to go this weekend!
Today, I saw this video. Not the same source at all, but another fantastic source for thoughts on connection and attachment and adhd and intentional parenting, of smalls and teens and everyone in between. Gabor Mate has written a few of my favorite parenting resource books: Scattered (about ADHD) and Hold Onto Your Kids. He is a thoughtful, credentialed, excellent researcher, therapist and source for information.
If you’re interested in intentional parenting, check this out, below. It’s a great advance prep to get my brain in gear for the conference this weekend too. It’s worth your time and attention. It’s all about Conscious Parenting. Look….

I wish we could have an ETC conference up here….so many would benefit. And thank you for posting the video on Conscious Parenting. It gave me much to ponder.
I know Paula…it’s that good. Her book, “The Connected Child” and those two by Mate are most excellent, however, in lieu of the in-person conference. I’d love to have one up close enough for both of us…so I could meet you in person too! Maybe it’ll be a Dominican thing sometime…I’m betting on it!
delurking to say i will also be at Empowered to Connect….i am so ready and excited!
