In doing so, Elli learned about the importance of attachment and connection as they extend beyond sleep and into the daily realities of daytime parenting. In doing so Elli learned that the traditional parenting strategies of punishment and rewards did not have to be the way that she parented her children. That in fact, children don’t need to be punished or rewarded to gain their cooperation or compliance. That instead, the power to parent comes from the connection between a parent and their children and that by prioritizing that connection families can thrive!
Elli now passionately supports families to gently parent their young children. Whether that’s working with them on getting sleep without sleep training, or supporting the parents to move away from punishments as a means of control. Elli loves working with families to empower them to parent from a place of connection that aligns with the current research on child development.
