    Hi, I’m not sure if this will appear in the right place as I can’t seem to find the thread, but anyway…the other day I read your ‘child-led life’ blog with great interest. Seeing myself in a mirror. One that I have already seen, but somehow seeing someone else write so elequently about the same thing somehow gave it more gravitas.

    This Sunday evening we went out for a quiet stroll to see the ducks in the local park and my partner commented ‘that hill will be fun to roll down when it’s not so muddy’, and with your blog at the fore of my mind I thought to myself, what a ‘parental’ thing to say! lol. I absolutely agree of course, and so I put the challenge forward that frankly, a bit of mud is not the end of the world and if something’s fuin, then it’s fun.. We asked our (newly turned) two year old if she’d like to… and no sooner were the words out of our mouths than all three of us were rolling down the hill, getting dizzy, then running races, and we spent the next half hour getting (only a little) muddy, but laughing and rolling and having great fun, just being daft.

    Thank you Lisa for breaking me (us) out of our ‘parent mode’ and into the less sensible, more care free mode of our child, it brought us a lot of joy today. 🙂

      Hi Andy,
      I moderated your comment while away on holiday and have thought about it many times since then. I wanted to thank you for sharing such a poignant vignette from your parenting life. It filled me with joy to imagine the three of you rolling down that hill. Wishing you many such joy-filled moments in your child’s life.
      Kind regards,

    Hi! just discovered your blog, + i like it v much so far; not least because you’re english too! (not american, as are so many good blogs) Im really striving for the Child-Led Life, but it can be a challenge. do you have a facebook page? im much more likely to get time to see your stuff if its posted to my feed. I look forward to hearing more encouraging/inspiring stuff from you soon; it was just what i needed tonight! thanx, Eleanor.

      Hi Eleanor,
      Thanks for your kind comments. Yes, leading a child-led life is a practice: not something we perfect, but a process that we allow ourselves to be a part of.

      Yes, I have a facebook page: It’s new!

      And I hope this doesn’t disappoint, but I am an American. I have been living in this country for 17 years. I love it here.
      All the best,
