What is Sage Parenting?

HempLeafLogoWelcome to the Sage Parenting Blog, a bullshit-free zone where compassionate and conscious connection reigns.

If words like loving, respectful, intentional, informed, bond, and attachment resonate with you, then you’re in the right place.

Take a little scientific research, add authentic mothering heart, mix in some professional experience perspective, told through snarky humor, and wrapped in a warm hug, and you are in the Sage Parenting Blog.

Our mission is to change the world, one heart full child at a time.

The Sage Parenting Blog covers topics such as:

  • breastfeeding on cue, full term, and in public
  • nighttime parenting through night nursing and cosleeping
  • homeschooling together out in the world
  • parenting effectively within the context of raising heart full people


Who are Sage Parents?

2014SchaljoSage Parents are wise mamas who are committed to raising their little ones in a radical way: with a loving connection and respectful compassion. So sadly radical in fact, that most of us Sage Parents can’t pull from our own childhoods or the child-rearing we see around us for inspiration.

This is our haven, where gentle parents can trust the research-based  information needed to make informed choices, seek guidance for practical challenges, and get lost in the heartsong of a fellow mama sharing the journey.

Sage Parents tend to be:

  • female
  • who are educated
  • aged 18-44
  • with a little one aged 0-5

This makes the Sage Parenting Blog an ideal place to promote a product or service that helps support new mamas and little ones on their journey to rock this parenting love thang and look good doing it.


How many Sage Parents are here?

The Sage Parenting Blog is not a behemoth in terms of numbers but the relationships cultivated with each Sage Parent have yielded a strong trust. Today’s numbers might be small, but the mamas behind them are fiercely loyal. This Sage Parenting movement is rapidly gaining traction and the Sage Parenting Blog is at the forefront. You can get in on the ground floor and join the Sage Parenting Family now as a sponsor.
