A mother in one of the mom's group I hosted suggested I would really like the book Hunt Gather Parent by Michaeleen Doucleff, but at the time she suggested it I was too busy to listen. I was later prompted to read the book and it has revolutionized my parenting and my life. It's taken me from resentful, angry and burnt out to happier, healthier, and thriving.
Michaeleen went to live with 3 different intact indigenous cultures and learnt their best parenting techniques and she has weaved it together into what she calls TEAM parenting.
In this episode I share some of the gold nuggets I learnt from the book and how it has shifted our family system.
