author By Emilie Leeks,

When we are faced
With struggles in our lives
Do we embrace the struggle,
The resistance,
The pain?

Or do we turn from it
Push it down
Reject it?
When we feel powerless
To change,
When we feel unworthy,
Of anything better -
Different -
We get stuck in our struggle.

Remember your worth
Reignite your power
Or find those who
Will remind you,
Re-light you.

Then you will find
That change is
Not only possible
But inevitable.

A word or two about Journeys in Parenting; a responsive parenting community

Emilie is a Hand in Hand Parenting instructor, and was a paediatric speech and language therapist in her former life. She provides support and coaching for parents via the Journeys in Parenting community. Emilie lives in Berkshire in the UK with her husband and 3 children.

Journeys in Parenting is a community group for parents, carers and parents-to-be, who want to find out more about parenting in a responsive and peaceful way. The community offers information, advice and emotional support for this hard work we do as parents. The vision of the group is to be a safe space, where parents are supported in guiding their families in ways which: are respectful to children; meet the parents' needs; and lead to a more peaceful planet for all.
