Pay It Forward – 10 Ways to Share Hope And Inspiration With Positive Parenting

Pay it forwardParenting is not easy. Support along the way can help ease the natural (although not always smooth) transitions that are inevitable in nurturing new life.

Whether you are part of the mailing list, challenging yourself to experience more sanity in parenting, a silent reader or someone I know in person…

Thank you for making a difference in the world.

The example you share within your own heart, home and in the world offers solace to parents who are struggling. We need less struggle, and more ease, which is why I’ve created this list of ten ways you can share hope and inspiration with Presence Parenting.

1. Purchase practical parenting solutions

If you want to pay a dollar amount to receive practical parenting support for yourself or someone else (or you have just completed the challenge and you want to contribute financially), click the button below and input whatever amount you choose. (Feel free to include a note with any payment you make if it’s a gift for someone else or you’d like to share something with me).

2. Share Amy Phoenix – Presence, Parenting and Prose on social networks

It’s no secret that social networks are how many people share (and find) valuable resources. If you’d like to share Presence Parenting or The Sane Parenting Challenge, here are two links that may be helpful.

Sane Parenting Challenge –

While you’re at it, connect with me on Facebook and Pinterest (although I admit I’m a bit random in my social media posts). Also, you can browse the blog and share specific articles with the share buttons at the bottom of each post. Add your own experience and share away.

3. Comment on blog and social media posts

People need to know about the positive parenting options to benefit from them. If you see a post, picture or other sharing and find it helpful, please share your experience by commenting. Be courageous and be specific. Let parents know how you are benefiting and how it impacts your parenting experience. The more of us sharing helpful parenting resources the more parents will step up and use those resources.

4. Put a badge on your blog or website

Do you have a blog or website? Share the idea of sane parenting with your readers. Let the world know we’re on a mission to transform the idea that parenting has to be crazy (or at least make peace with the craziness)! Just copy and paste the code below the badge and put it in your sidebar or another spot that works for you.

5. Write or share an email, blog post or article

Even if you don’t have a blog, you can create an email or social media status update that shares your experience with positive parenting. Invite a friend to join the mailing list or the Sane Parenting Challenge. If you do have a website, maybe you could create a list of helpful resources, we could arrange an interview or you could feature some benefits of the Sane Parenting Challenge somewhere in an article. Also, if you’d like a guest post from me, we could work that out. Just contact me to discuss your ideas.

6. Share positive parenting in person

Do you know a parent who could benefit from a few moments of rest? No, that wasn’t meant to be a trick question! Share positive parenting with a friend, or even another parent who looks like they could use some support. There are several free articles on the site that can provide just what a parent needs for a quick break and a shift in perspective. Plus, the idea of sane parenting will lighten up just about any situation.

7. Share positive parenting business cards

Have you ever met a parent who’s steeped in anger, feels lost in their role or seems to really need some support? How would it feel to hand them a helpful resource like Amy Phoenix – Presence, Parenting and Prose? If you’d be interested in having a few business cards to share or post in pertinent situations, please contact me with your mailing address and I’ll gratefully send you some.

8. Share and post Sane Parenting Challenge flyers

Would you be open to sharing the Sane Parenting Challenge with people in your community? Often libraries, stores, fitness centers and other local venues are open to posting helpful resources for families. If you’d like to share the challenge with parents in your community, click here to download a printable flyer. Please make sure to ask before posting and date the flyer when you post.

9. Share your experience with me

Sometimes I include a “What Parents Are Saying” or “Mutual Gratitude” section on the site or with a specific offering to share feedback about the offerings here. If you have anything you’d like to share at any point, feel free to share it with me and I’ll put it to use (you can do so anonymously, with a first name or with a link to your blog/site – whatever works for you).

10. Contact me with other ideas to pay it forward

Maybe you have a fantabulous idea for sharing positive parenting that I haven’t thought of or mentioned. Do you know of a group or organization who would benefit from knowing about the Sane Parenting Challenge? Maybe you know of a radio show or other program where a discussion of sane parenting would peak the audience’s interest. I’d be happy to contact them and I’d love to hear your suggestions. Feel free to contact me anytime!

Thanks again for nurturing the loving presence that you are and for sharing positive parenting. Together, we are contributing positively to the lives of families all over the world.

Are you struggling as a parent? If so, I’d like to share something with you: a story and some hope.
