Home is a space for everyone (including and especially our children) to practice being their most authentic selves, safely and joyfully. A place to grow, rest, heal, and play, freely and peacefully.Join us on Instagram LIVE! A conversation between myself, Sarah Sacco of Clutter and Lauren DeMarco of Makers Community Studio, and on Wednesday June 24th at 5pm.
We strive for our belongings to reflect ourselves and our values; building your own collection of belongings is a personal process. We are responsible for giving our children the space and respect they deserve to start this process for themselves. As our lives and families evolve, so does our space.
We will be sharing some ideas with you about how items that are beautiful to us can blend with items that are important to our family members, so that everyone can thrive under one roof!
We will discuss conscious parenting, boundaries, identity, ego, the importance of different types of play and creativity for building confidence, how our children’s belongings which hold inherent value can be integrated into your shared space, tips for home harmony, connection, and joy!
Lauren and I are so proud to bring you this content! We hope that if you take something away from our conversation you will dig a little deeper into our work.
