This is the second year of The Parenting Passageway! I wanted to thank everyone out there for reading, for passing this site on to your family and friends. Last month this blog got over 40,000 hits. I don’t know much about computers and don’t really know if that is high or not, but I do know that is much higher than the very first month of The Parenting Passageway where we generated about 700 hits for the whole month. :)
Anyhoo, in order to celebrate this month, I thought I would do some “Back To Basics” posts about parenting. So, you may see some oldies but goodies and some new posts about realistic expectations, tools for the loving guidance toolbox, rhythm and probably a few on Waldorf homeschooling and a few Steiner-related surprises!
Thank you all for celebrating with me this month! I hope everyone is having a good month!
This has been a week of people acknowledging the work that goes into “The Parenting Passageway” blog and I just wanted to say thank you to everyone.
This blog, specifically this post on Children and Chores (http://theparentingpassageway.com/2010/08/15/more-regarding-children-and-chores-in-the-waldorf-home/), was mentioned in the September 2010 E-zine by Simplicity Parenting author and expert Kim John Payne. You can sign up to receive the free monthly E-zines here: http://simplicityparenting.com/forsimplicityparents.html
I also was one of the blogs voted on and recognized over at The Waldorf Connection as Number Two of “The Best Waldorf Blogs” here: http://thewaldorfconnection.com/uncategorized/waldorf-homeschooling-best-waldorf-blogs/
It is my fervent hope whether you are a parent seeking simplicity, a parent of small children or older children, a homeschooling parent or a parent whose children go to school, that you will all find something helpful here in this space.
Thank you all again so very much.

Thank you to Lola for translating……
See here for the first post my friend Fabiola has translated! I am so excited! http://fabiolaperezsitko.blogspot.com/2010/01/eres-un-padre-enojon.html
Fabiola, thank you for translating this for all of my Spanish-speaking readers!
At some point in the future I would like to move this onto a website and have it be more than just a blog. One thing that increasingly concerns me is that there are now something like 400 posts on this blog, and I would like to have more permanent pages so it is easier to find things – maybe pages by chronological age of the child or parenting topic.
I hope at some point in the future to gather some of the scattered information and compose them into e-books as well.
Any thoughts for what you all would like to see??
This blog got 700-something hits a MONTH in the beginning (last November) and is now getting over 1000 hits a DAY! Now that’s progress! Thanks everyone!
Thank you for reading!
Good Morning Everyone,
If you have found this site, welcome! Unfortunately, we have had a technical problem with our Domain Registration the result of which is the temporary loss of our domain name: http://theparentingpassageway.com
We are working diligently with WordPress to resolve the issue and we hope to be back up within the next 24 hours. We will be making some big changes in the future, so please continue to visit and tell all your friends about us as well!
A passageway, as one would guess, is a conduit to the next thing – a way that allows movement from one place, condition or stage to the other. This blog is entitled “The Parenting Passageway” as it is intended to help support and encourage parents as they journey from being a single individual and/or the duality of being a couple to being an awakened parent and unified family. The ideas here are not completely new, but hopefully will still provide you, the reader, with some “a-ha” moments of clarity to ponder in your parenting journey . Whether you agree or disagree with what I have to say…. Thanks for reading and welcome again to this site!
We’re happy to have you here.
