Re: Parenting labels. Anyone ever break free?

I'm so glad you posted this b/c I've really been feeling the same way! I'm considered very crunchy around here, but no where near that in comparison others. I love to be informed, however, I don't like the pressure to conform. That's what I feel is happening, whether it be from others or I'm putting that pressure on myself.

I don't know that I've ever given myself a label. My children have taught me there is a season for everything and I just have to figure out which season I'm in and act accordingly. I can't force the season by {insert any parenting activity} anymore than I can bring on winter by wearing snowshoes in August.
Hahaha, love it!
