EDITOR ~ KRISTY PILLINGER
A lawyer by training, I became aware of the lack of information about instinctual parenting as I prepared for the birth of my first child.
While I absorbed a great deal from mainstream parenting publications, it felt as though something fundamental was missing. It was not until I came across ‘Helping Your Baby to Sleep – Why gentle techniques work best’ by Anni Gethin & Beth Macgregor, that I realised there were more approaches than those most widely advocated, and that I was ‘allowed’ to listen to my instincts.
In researching natural parenting (attachment parenting and conscious parenting) it became clear that the lack of an appropriate publication had created a very one-sided market in Australia. With no idea that there is another, more natural way to rear a child, many parents struggle with a framework that doesn’t fit their needs.
After some thought, I have taken up the challenge of publishing Australia’s natural parenting magazine. Four months later, I have published the first issue!
