I must add that good health is a plus, too.

I came over here from Beth (The Natural Mommy)'s blog, after reading your comments on her post about spanking. I have been looking through your older posts for some resources as I yearn to not spank my 18 month old daughter, but at the same time I don't know what it looks like to raise respectful, well-behaved children without spanking them. Anyways, I just wanted to say hi and I'll definitely bookmark this! If you have any specific advice I'd love to hear more. :-)

Hi, Ashley! Thank you so much for coming by. I am so excited to be with you on the gentle parenting journey. If you haven't seen these yet, they might be a good place to start:

Ultimately, though, there is no substitute for having friends who have already been there to talk it through at different stages, which is what I love most about GCM.

Lots of hugs to you, and if you have specific questions about how it looks in certain situations, feel free to ask.

warmly, Dulce

Thank you for the links! I will look through them.

I quick question - I signed up a few weeks ago at GCM but haven't heard anything, and even though I can log in I can't post. Do you know how long it takes to be approved?

I started a thread under the Questions About This board forum for you. :). I wasn't sure of your user name there, but maybe you can PM Jeri? Also, some forums won't let you post in them at first. Can you post in any of the forums? Looking forward to seeing you there. :)
