Join Joe and Anea as they discuss conscious parenting when it comes to how we dress our children. In spite of good intentions, we frequently limit the ability of our children (especially our girls) to move through the world actively, freely and safely by dressing them in clothes that either literally make it difficult to fully engage in play and exploration of the world and/or send strong messages about what makes them 'acceptable' as either girls or boys. Then, as our kids move into their adolescent years, the way in which we 'police' their clothing can do damage in a whole other set of ways.   For information regarding your data privacy, visit acast.com/privacy

Join Joe and Anea as they explore some of the important basics of raising emotionally healthy kids. For information regarding your data privacy, visit acast.com/privacy
