About

Hi I’m Connie. I’ve a full time job in a conservative American corporation that frowns on working from home. I have two loves – my two year old son and my coder-husband, and I am one of those fortunate grown ups who has a good relationship with my parents.

For the first 35 years of my life I led an entirely different lifestyle, an excessively playful one that took me places and greatly helped me in appreciating what I have now. These days I’m working on being a good role model to my son, and helping moms and dads discover less stressful ways to parenting.

I am not afraid to experiment to find out what works, and I am certainly unafraid to be an atypical mom. All my life I was a rebel, and I’m still a rebel now. I don’t expect to raise my son like a sheep, that’s the last thing I would like for him to become. It’s tricky having to balance disciplining and following our true paths but I continue to try.

We have to stay true to ourselves even if we are parents! I believe our kids and our partners will appreciate us for that. I tend not to follow generic guidance from corporations and health associations because let’s face it – these entities have hidden agendas to benefit them, not necessarily us. These unfold themselves when you follow the money, i.e. decipher the monetary, pride or power motivations behind their intent.

I hope my perspectives and insights will be inspirational to you. Every kid is different and every parent is different so let’s find out what works for our children, shall we?

Cheers!
Connie
