Gentle Parenting and Cycle breaking

There is no gentle parenting without fierce cycle breaking. They are two sides of the same coin. Unless we engage consciously in the fierce act of cycle breaking, with power systems, with society, and intergenerational toxicity with "elders", there is no way we can be warm, kind and nurturing, and empathetic to our young vulnerable children. In a world filled with violence and power over, the act of non-abusive parenting is revolutionary. "Good Girls" and "Good Boys" have their thwarted fight responses as children turn into abuse against their children when they become parents.
