Natural Parenting Network - India

A group for parents who want to raise their children the way nature intended them to grow. Topics of discussion here include:

** Ecological Responsibility and Love of Nature **
Families strive to reduce their ecological footprint by living consciously such as by choosing organic , using cloth diapers, finding toys and clothing made of natural fibers and materials. Families spend quality time outside enjoying the natural world.

** Holistic Health Practices **
Parents research medical choices and make educated decisions regarding all health care (circumcision, vaccinations, medical interventions, medications, etc.). Many families choose to use alternative or natural healthcare such as herbal remedies, chiropractic care, natural childbirth, and so on.

** Natural Learning**
Families spend time together, and children learn through everyday activities. Parents try to facilitate learning without “teaching,” to help children ask questions that develop thinking, to develop consideration for others without shaming or training, to give choices while guiding the children, to listen to instinctual cues, to honor emotions and desires, to allow development to take place in its own time, and to engender cooperation and harmony without manipulation. This might include uncommon methods of education, such as alternative classrooms, home schooling, or unschooling.
