Children with their malleable minds are always ready to absorb what comes their way. What they really need is a sense of rhythm to navigate through the overwhelming world.
A child in a room filled with colours isn’t always a happy picture. It might be an organised chaos which in the early years, over-stimulates a child. According to Rudolf Steiner’s theory of twelve senses, out of all the senses, sight contributes most to our awareness and it is also the easiest to block.
Parenting comes with its own challenges and often parents get super creative in handling those challenges in their own way. We recently spoke to Neha Chauhan, a Steiner Parent and a mother to Vedant. She is an extremely mindful individual and so it was very interesting to know her approach towards parenting. Gravitated towards growing her own food and permaculture, she truly believes that parenting evolves every day. The conversation showed a different approach to solving these daily-parenting challenges. Let us get to know her approach better!
Conscious parenting can be a lot more fun.
We get to think out of the box solutions, literally with any material. Living waste free everyday doesn't need to be preachy and that's what we wanted to share with everyone here. In our studio we embraced a waste free lifestyle, handled it creatively, looked through a child’s mind, honoured every little strand of thread and shreds that come out of our making process. We choose to be frugal and decided to follow a disruptive approach and not to waste an inch of our handmade fabrics.
Nurseries are a delightful mess. Among the many things we buy for our babies, textiles in the form of clothing, blankets, pillows etc are a major part. Literally every month fresh clothes are bought and after spending a fortune on them, every parent certainly feels that they should last longer. If not for their baby to be passed on to friends and family. But what makes any baby clothing /essentials last longer? When there are several situations of wear n tear and damage possible. This is where “AFTERCARE” methods help us out. Good aftercare of clothes keeps them fresh, clean and hygienic.
