A Parenting Manifesto

Austin Born

So if you guys aren't familiar with Brene Brown, we suggest you check her out. She's a brilliant researcher and storyteller (and Texan!) who studies and writes about vulnerability, empathy, and shame. For a little taste,  right here is a brief (3 minutes, that's it!) and brilliant video talk she gave on empathy that will truly change how you interact in your relationships. 

I also recently finished reading her new book, Daring Greatly: How the Courage to be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent and Lead and fell head over heels in love with a snippet she calls "The Wholehearted Parenting Manifesto." It's simply too good not to share and you can even get this beautiful free downloadable poster of this manifesto from her website along with several others. I suggest you print it out and hang it out as a daily reminder for you and your family!
