Peaceful Parenting From The Sidewalk

This weekend, I joined with advocates from across the nation to Chalk The Walk with our favorite peaceful parenting messages.

As always, this is a family-friendly event and all ages are welcome to participate. Perfect for us — especially this time with a 1.5-day-old baby and a 3.5-year-old kiddo in tow!

A variety of peaceful parenting topics were on display: Informed birth choice, breastfeeding, nighttime parenting (no CIO), cloth diapering, babywearing, gentle ‘discipline’, genital autonomy…

See the inspired chalkings from past events here and here. To view more details about the national event, visit the Chalk The Walk national event page.

Oh, did I mention the contest?? Photos of chalk drawings posted on the event wall or emailed to Dr. Momma/Peaceful Parenting were entered to win. The winner in each category is to receive $10 toward advocacy materials or a Made By Momma gift card (winner’s choice).

Speaking up for babies is rewarding for everyone. 🙂

You can read about our local contribution to the event from last year in my post “The Park Is No Place For A Child To Find Out He’s Circumcised.

Below are this year’s offerings, which I tried to chalk pretty quickly in my neighborhood (soon, nursling would need to eat and big sibling would want to smudge the drawings with his bare feet, of course).
