Recycling is bad?

My 6 year old told me the other day that "recycling isn't good for the environment". That comment was pretty much blasphemy in our household since we are avid recyclers. I asked her what she meant. She elaborated by saying, " well, in order to recycle you need to use a lot of water to clean the stuff and then trucks have to use gas to take the stuff to be recycled, and then you use electricity to run the machines that recycle the stuff". I agreed with her. She went on "but… Continue

Kale in english muffins, yay!

Today, Jake was making bread and asked me if I wanted him to add any extra grains or healthy stuff. I suggested flaxseed meal, so that went in. Then amazingly he suggested adding pureed kale! This is coming from the same man who looked at his plate with disdain the first time I served kale last year. So he whipped up a cup of pureed kale and added it to the dough. Tonight he used some of the dough to make english muffins. I'm curious to the kids' reactions when they are served english muffins… Continue

Children Call For Change

My daughter started 7th grade last week. There is such a great change in who she is now compared to last year. She and her peers are so much more aware of the world around them. They are beginning to question everything, and want to know why. They are paying attention to politics, and creating sustainable ideas to change the environment. I just love hearing about their ideas. I think that they are so much more conscious than we ever were. They are simply amazing. However, this does leave adults… Continue

Co-Creative Parenting

I happened to mention to a few friends, that I would love to move back to NY, how I discussed the idea of moving with my daughter, and she is onboard with the decision. I received a look of surprise that was both amusing and unnerving. Did I say something wrong? “But, you are the parent”, was the response that I received. Yes, I am the parent, but I believe in co-creation. I cannot create something that involves another human being that is capable of making choices, and expect a good outcome… Continue
