Parents Group Meeting

Seomra Spraoi / Saturday 27th June / 7pm

The best of us, at times, can be made feel isolated or alienated for thinking outside the box on issues that affect us & our children’s lives.

Whether it’s the mass media trying to manipulate you and your kids, gender stereotyping from the moment of birth, marketers targeting your kids as evolving consumers, a domesticising education system, authoritarian parenting, whatever negatives… the landscape can seem bleak and lonely if you’re questioning issues like these and feeling alone in your thoughts & efforts.

Instead of wallowing in the negatives of modern parenting, we think it’s important to open up a space where parents from diverse backgrounds can share positive experiences of different parenting and education practises as well as offering solidarity to others of like minds.

We plan to discuss many of the possibles & impossibles of parenting, alternative means of educating, kids’ music, unschooling, homeschooling, radical parenting, alternatives to punishment, teens, anti-authoritarian parenting, noTV, natural birthing, Steiner/Waldorf education, food, surviving the toddler years…

The list is endless!

Come along to our first informal meeting and share your experience, ideas and solidarity.
