Love multiplies. You know this, and your love partnerships reflect that deep desire for freedom and sovereignty. But living a polyamorous lifestyle can seem, on the surface, incompatible with the world of family and children. It doesn’t have to be.
Learn tips and suggestions that will help you with your most pressing questions:
- How do you explain polyamory to your kids?
- How involved should your partners be in your children’s lives?
- What do you do when you’re no longer romantically involved with a co-parent?
- How do you run a busy household with multiple adults and kids?
- What about when you break up with a partner and your kids misses him/her?
- How do you deal with being an alternative family in a mainstream society?
- What about school, extended family, and the holidays?
Even for those of us living radically progressive love lives, when it comes to parenting, we can revert to the way we were raised or mainstream parenting advice. But with an ethic of freedom, you can feel like a hypocrite trying to parent your children with a top-down, authoritative model. Looking for a better way?
Peaceful parenting will help you learn to:
- Extend sovereignty and freedom to your kids
- Create a stronger, more authentic relationship with your children
- Facilitate your child’s interests and passions
- Stop the yelling and communicate more effectively
- Release your need for control and coercion
- Move from a model of control to one of partnership
- Live more harmoniously together as a family
