Why We Need To Help This Gentle Parenting Icon

This is difficult to write about and I don’t know where to begin, so I’ll just start at the beginning of my parenting journey, when I discovered someone who wrote about children in a way that I completely felt connected to. Someone who stood for the respectful treatment of children and all humans. Someone who said, ‘It’s not our job to toughen our children to face a cruel and heartless world. It’s our job to raise children who will make the world a little less cruel and heartless.’ This and many more messages have become viral on social media, giving it the positivity it needs. Award winning author, LR Knost, is the founder and director of children’s rights advocacy and family consulting groups, Little Hearts/Gentle Parenting Resources, and Editor-in-Chief of Holistic Parenting Magazine. LR empowers and encourages positivity in households around the world, including my own. She’s also the incredible mother of 6 children. She was the reason I felt inspired to create Gentle Parenting Memes, with her quotes! Little did I know, years later she would also happily write the foreword in my first book!

LR Knost

LR Knost

A little more about LR:

It saddens me immensely to write of her battle with an incurable (Neuroendocrine) Cancer.  Read her story, in her own words, here. I’ve followed her journey for years and have struggled with not knowing how to help someone who, even through her personal challenges, still works tirelessly to stand up for human rights.

This feminist, and social justice activist’s work has been quoted from Hollywood to D.C. to South Africa, most notably in an address on children’s rights to the South African Parliament by the Minister of Justice. She lives in Central Florida with her husband and the youngest four of her six children. Her parenting books include the secular ‘Two Thousand Kisses a Day: Gentle Parenting Through the Ages and Stages,’ ‘Whispers Through Time: Communication-Based Parenting,’ and ‘The Gentle Parent: Positive, Practical, Effective Discipline,’ and the faith-based ‘Jesus, the Gentle Parent: Gentle Christian Parenting.’ Her children’s books include ‘Petey’s Listening Ears,’ the first in her Wisdom For Little Hearts series and her soon-to-be-released ‘Grumpykins’ children’s picture book series for ages two to six. Both series are humorous, engaging tools for parents, teachers, and caregivers to use in implementing gentle parenting techniques in their homes and schools. She has helped us all so much.

What could I do that would help, even just a tiny bit? Probably not much, on my own, but with support from peaceful parents who have also been touched by LR’s words, I can raise money to help with medical expenses and ease some stress so she can focus on her beautiful family.

I’ve created the Gentle Parenting Memes, LR Knost Fundraiser Pack:

  • Gentle Parenting Memes, Volume 1,
  • Poster #7
  • Magnet Trio

Valued at US$36.60*, for only US$25.20*! 50% of ALL packs sold, will go to LR Knost.

I will run this campaign for as long as it takes to sell 60 packs (raising AU$1,000 or approx US$766)!

If you wish to help me raise money for LR Knost and would also like her inspiration in your home, please purchase the Fundraiser Pack from www.gentleparentingmemes.com. Your help is truly appreciated! (*Note: prices based on current xe.com conversions. Prices on website shown in Australian dollars and not including shipping. Shipping available worldwide.)

Other ways to help: Donate directly to her YouCaring fundraising page – all expenses will go directly to her medical care, or support her purchasing her books on Amazon. You can follow her journey on her facebook page.

Kirsty Lee is a passionate and devoted mother of  a boy and girl. She lives in Australia and runs the @GentleParenting_Memes account on Instagram. Her aim is to #normalizegentleparenting, provide support and inspire parents wishing to guide their children gently through life.

  18. Thanks for sharing your ideas. I might also like to mention that video games have been actually evolving. Today’s technology and revolutions have helped create genuine and enjoyable games. These entertainment games were not actually sensible when the actual concept was first of all being experimented with. Just like other styles of electronics, video games also have had to evolve through many ages. This itself is testimony on the fast continuing development of video games.

  19. I have learned some considerations through your site post. One other thing I would like to mention is that there are many games available and which are designed specially for toddler age little ones. They include pattern identification, colors, creatures, and designs. These normally focus on familiarization as opposed to memorization. This keeps little kids engaged without experiencing like they are learning. Thanks

  20. Nicely I definitely loved learning it. This particular topic procured by a person is very efficient for accurate preparing.

  34. This web site definitely has all the information and facts I wanted about this subject and didn’t know who to ask.

  35. A further issue is that video games are typically serious as the name indicated with the key focus on mastering rather than amusement. Although, it comes with an entertainment feature to keep your children engaged, each and every game is normally designed to work on a specific set of skills or programs, such as instructional math or research. Thanks for your publication.
