Parenting Peacefully with James Davis – 050

Direct mp3 download.

Link to episode 50 on Libsyn.

Join the Liberty Hippie and James Davis for episode 50 of the Homesteads and Homeschools podcast as they enter into the world of parenting to talk about…peaceful parenting! For some, peaceful parenting can seem a bit exotic, and almost impossible to achieve, for others, it’s just a form of laziness, and for those that practice it, it can become the facilliator of a beautiful relationship between parents and children, while setting those children up for great success in the future. Take a listen and see how peaceful parenting can benefit not just your children, but you.
