Interview with Janet Lansbury (The Green Parent)

April May 2016 cover

The April/ May edition of The Green Parent magazine includes the latest in my series of interviews with parenting experts.

I spoke to Janet Lansbury, author of Elevating Child Care: A Guide to Respectful Parenting and No Bad Kids: Toddler Discipline Without Shame about the RIE (Resources for Infant Educarers) approach and why we should recognise that our babies are whole and separate people.

“A simple shift in perspective can make parenting a more fascinating, successful, and joyful process. Mostly it’s about trust, which paves the way for us to discover our kids and establish a lifelong relationship of mutual appreciation, respect, and love.” Janet Lansbury

Since doing this interview I’ve delved much deeper into RIE and it has transformed my whole approach to parenting. I think my husband is tired of hearing “Janet would say XYZ”!
