Hi Organic Moms + Dads! This is Courtney here with a solo episode that I hope you’ll tuck in your back pocket for those days that just feel really challenging during parenthood.

Let’s not sugarcoat this: even the most well-bonded, healthiest, loved, supported children have meltdowns, hit growth spurts, have a tough night of sleep (or lack thereof), etc. 

How do we know?

Because even the most well-bonded, healthiest, supported adults have meltdowns, hit growth spurts (ours just start to be more horizontal than vertical if we’re not paying attention!) + we have tough nights of sleep, too.

Prepared parenthood doesn’t mean that you’re exempt from the challenging parts of parenthood altogether because neither adult nor child are exempt from experiencing life. 

And what I think is a critical component of parenting from preparedness is to be prepared for the challenges knowing that life still happens + you can’t reasonably control every single detail. 

So, what do you do knowing you can’t control every detail? 

To start, you decide to let parenting be easy. And in today’s episode, I’m explaining what exactly that is + why.
