Works-in-Progress.

Upbringing is a movement that empowers us all to engage bravely with the hardest aspects of parenting to create profound, positive change in ourselves, our families and the world.

No pressure or anything. But let’s get real— we all hope to raise compassionate, aware, respectful and fulfilled humans — a much-needed generation of peacemakers, innovators, disruptors, and thought leaders. Right?

And yet, we all struggle to reconcile our vision for the future with the challenging behaviors of our kids today. Upbringing builds intention, elevates skills, and aligns our values so we don’t undermine the very qualities we hope to inspire. When we work to accept their feelings, honor their bodies, and respect their will, we make the dream possible. When we choose trust over fear, connection over control and progress over perfection, we’re not just raising our kids— we’re raising ourselves.

It’s time to rise up! To challenge the inherited dogmas and limiting beliefs that disconnect us from the people we want to be and limit the kids we hope to raise. Let’s show up and grow up!

The Podcast

 

CONVERSATIONs

We’re better together.

The parenting experience is as universal as it is diverse, a magical opportunity to share and learn from one another. Our conversations seek to unite a tribe of conscious humans who bravely share their struggles, creatively pursue their dreams, and who passionately elevate the dialogue around what we do and why. Tune in every other Monday as we chat with artists, musicians, poets, nutritionists, podcasters, activists, designers, authors and more!

 

EMPOWERMENT

The hard stuff is the good stuff.

The children in our lives don’t bring out the worst in us — they challenge us to become our best. These episodes are a twin-talkin’ examination of ways to align our ideals with our daily parenting practices. The two of us will roll through a new Empowerment each week, and together, we’ll build skills around the only thing we can control — our own thoughts and behavior. Listen every other Monday on Apple Podcasts, Youtube, or our website.

Parenting is political.

 
 

An essential aspect of our work as socially conscious humans is to parent without hypocrisy. Activism through our parenting practice extends beyond toting our kids to rallies or buying them the right books. It demands that we treat our kids humanely, as equals. It invites us to view the HARDEST moments with our kids as opportunities for both personal growth and social change— a chance to advance the cause or undermine it. At its heart, our work begins with WELCOMING our kids’ resistance. Join us!

Our Empowerments

Some may call them beliefs, guideposts, tenets, or mantras; we call them Empowerments. Each reminds us of the sacred responsibility to reflect our greatest ideals amidst the shit-storm of our experience as parents. Empowerments are vital touchstones that inspire authentic alignment between what we believe and what we do.
