Hello and welcome! This group is dedicated to bringing together parents (or parents-to-be) who are of a gentle parenting philosophy in the Riverside and surrounding areas. We center around the ideas of respect for children as individuals, both psychologically and physically. We believe there are much better ways to meeting the needs of our children, as well as parents, than outward verbal or physical aggression. Through empathetic communication, both parent's and child's desires can coexist simultaneously. If you are new to these ideas, we welcome you to join us in the exploration of positive relationships with our children and with ourselves!

This group is for anyone interested in spending time with like-minded individuals of the non-aggressive philosophy. While we are not an "attachment parent only" group, but we do aim to attract those who are inspired by gentle parenting and look to practice that as a general philosophy as a parent. We promote leading by example as a means of working with our kids, as opposed to aggressive forms of teaching such as spanking, shaming, etc. We set up playdates roughly once a month. Anyone who would like to join us is welcome!
