Thoughtful Parenting

Welcome to Thoughtful Parenting
My name is Catherine and with my... husband, James, we have created this group to be a safe, non-judgemental, corner of the internet to share and think about joys and challenges of parenting.

We only have two rules:
1. No selling or self promotions.
2. Be kind.

I am a work at home mum, who left a career as a molecular biologist after the birth of my daughter. I started my own business in 2014 when she began school.

My husband, James, is a child psychotherapist with some years working in the NHS and a history of work in both post-16 and Early Years education.

In this group you will find a host of up to date psychoanalytic, neuroscience, developmentally informed and evidence-based articles on childhood, parenting and life.

We will also provide activities, and arts & craft ideas that will engage your child, promote their development and whet their curiosity.

Creating moments in busy lives where we can connect with our children and experience unabridged parental love and pride. In this spirit, there will be limited edition promotions on my Memory Thread Co embroidered keepsakes, which capture those magical and fleeting moments of childhood.
