Description

The Peaceful Home is a place for the modern busy mom looking to break out of the mold left behind by the moms of past generations and write a new narrative. The mom who is willing to embrace the chaos, the overwhelm, and the overstimulation of parenting in a world on fire. Delving deep into the self-worth, personal development, self-esteem, and self-care required to find more peace. 

Here on the Peaceful Home, we talk honestly about the hard, we share stories, we laugh, we cry, and we heal but mostly we learn about who we are and we learn all about how to create for ourselves, and our kiddos, the Peaceful Home you have always dreamed of.

“Don’t just stand there…” Sometimes responses under stress make no sense to us, or the people around us. And that is because your nervous system is wired for one thing, Survival. It is often why we look back at moments in life and say things like “I should have run away,” because we don’t choose how we respond. And when we experience ongoing stress or trauma, the system can get stuck in a fight/flight/freeze response. Potentially experiencing ongoing chronic stress responses in...

Or Jane is too little to be expected to keep her hands to herself so you are left policing every interaction Jane has with every human on the planet, i...

If you are parenting a preteen or teenager, you may have had the thought, “What can I do to get them to listen?” This often leads to loss of screen time, removal of privileges and so much more. And for most parents, little is gained by this form of punishment. The truth is, the way you parented them at 7 stops being effective at 13. So something's got to give. You can no longer threaten to take away their toys and they do what you ask. Very often, what they do is raise you, like it's a g...
