Planting beds!! Having a landscape gardener husband, and given he’s just built these raised beds, means this year it’s time to get green fingered and embrace some veggie, fruit and herb growing!!!🌿 He has done really well creating different ‘zones’ in our garden that allow for lots of fun time outside playing and digging and investigating, but still keep our garden looking fairly tac free!

Looking forward to getting stuck in with the girls, i’m sure it will be chaos, but hopefully, even as amateurs we can grow something edible and will feel accomplished when we finally pick it in the garden.... 😆! #thebarenecessitoys #vegetables #vegetablegarden #gardensforchildren #gardeningwithkids #plantingwithkids #forestschool #naturesplayroom #funoutdoors #outdoorsfun #gardenplay #playgarden #growingvegetables #growingfruit #growingherbs #lessismore #momentsnotthings #gardendesign #landscapegardening #naturesplayground #havingfunoutside #gettingmuddy #thedanishwayofparenting #thedanishway

If you don’t like the yelling and the hands going up in exasperation, don’t do it. If you don’t like physicality, don’t do it. Sarcasm, irony and exposure of the things you dislike with your children’s behavior only foster distance and hostility. Instead, take responsibility for yourself, and guide your children, nurture them, and educate them. Children are supposed to push boundaries and test the rules. They are not bad and manipulative. This is how they grow. #noultimatums #childrenmirrorus #respectfulparenting #bethebetterexample #childrenslife #happychildhood #rolemodel #parentingtips #toddlerlife #motherhood #fatherhood #thedanishway #thedanishwayofparenting #playthedanishway #ibensandahl #ibendissingsandahl #writer #mom

Thankful for wise words this morning. #thedanishway @thedanishway

When you take the time to actually listen, with humility, to what people have to say, it's amazing what you can learn. Especially if the people who are doing the talking also happen to be children. #empathy #togetherness #love #happiness #family #childrenslife #childhood #motherhood #fatherhood #parentingtips #thedanishway #thedanishwayofparenting #playthedanishway #ibensandahl #ibendissingsandahl #writer #mom

Nach Weihnachten fängt die kuschelige Winterzeit erst richtig an! Mit warmen Socken und Wollpullovern, eiskalten Winterspaziergängen, verspielten Familientagen, heißem Tee, Kerzen und Kaminfeuer. Die Dänen nennen das Hygge und sind echte Meister darin. Auch in Sachen Erziehung können wir einiges von dieser „happy nation“ lernen. In dem Buch „Warum dänische Kinder glücklicher und ausgeglichener sind“ verraten uns eine Dänin und ihre amerikanische Freundin wie wir noch mehr Happiness und Hygge in unser Familienleben bringen. Sehr anschaulich, mit vielen Beispielen und einfach zu lesen. #buchtipp #thedanishway #mindfulparenting #hygge #empathie #starkekinder #ressourcenorientiert #elternsein #gefühle #familie

less than a 24 hour work trip to DC and I remembered to grab my copy of “the Danish Way of Parenting” on my way out the door! I typically never have time to sit and read my long list of “mama books” that are collecting dust , but WOW. To all my mama friends out there, buy this book. I only wish I would have read it sooner. It is amazing and puts everything in perspective . We are raising little tiny humans, and someday they will be adults and have to eventually navigate this big world without you, so teach them well. Let’s raise confident and capable kids. “Sometimes we forgot that parenting, like love, is a verb. It takes effort and work to yield positive returns. There is an incredible amount of self -awareness involved in being a good parent. It requires us to look at what we do when we are tired and stressed and stretched to our limits.” #thedanishway #thedanishwayofparenting #washingtondc

I love this tea from @moshimoshimind with mint, licuorice root and sea buckthorn berries.

Since moving back to Denmark I have fallen in love with buckthorn berries.
Apparently a single berry has as many c-vitamins as a large orange.
It is also rich in A-, B1-, B2-, E- og K-vitamin, antioxidants, amino acids and omega-3.
So I try to use it in different ways as it seems like a nice little berry to include in your diet. I buy them frozen and especially love to add them to my smoothies as they give them a freshness as the berry is bitter. 🧡💛

ART + PLAY = LOVE ❤️ ✨

So it recently occurred to me that there would be a fair few here who don’t know a great deal about me. Of course there are my followers who are my dear & loyal friends but then there are the other 1200 odd that I have never met before but who have been kind enough to support these creative little squares of mine. So please, let me introduce myself...
.
.
Hi, I’m Laura, wife to Jason & Mum to Jude, 3 & Oskar, 12 weeks. My world revolves around these people & really nothing else matters, except for ART & PLAY but I’ll get to that soon
.
.
In 2014, Jason & I were blessed to be married in Italy, in the same church that my grandparents were married, almost a century earlier. Two years later, Jude joined our little family, bringing immeasurable light & joy to our lives. Oct 2018 brought us our beautiful boy Oskar (with a ‘k’ to honour his Oma’s German heritage) & completed our family. Life is pretty great right now, even with little to no sleep ✨
.
.
So then there comes art & play. Why do I care so much about art & play? It’s simple really. It’s because the human race needs art & play more than it has ever needed it. Because art & play teaches us to be kind to one another, to respect, empathise & accept. Because our children need to exercise their whole brains & express themselves freely. Because they are forced into an Australian education system that hasn’t been reimagined in more than 50 years & neglects to nurture innovation. Because if your kids can’t be kids at school, we NEED to allow them to be free at home. Free to create, free to imagine, free to be KIDS. Because only through art & play can our children truly thrive and grow up to be the change that this world needs & because WE need play in our hectic lives; to connect with loved ones & connect with ourselves
.
.
So, I thank you for supporting my passion & for allowing me to share it with the people that matter to you. I look forward to bringing a little more magic into your homes this year✨
.
.
John Butler said ‘Art changes people & people change the world’ The same could be said for play. I truly hope that together, we can all be a part of that change ✨

We have a responsibility to nourish our children’s minds with more than just entertainment and the transfer of knowledge. We should also nourish their ability to empathize. And as a narrative psychotherapist, I find the words we use extremely powerful - so let’s use them carefully. #empathy #lovelovelove #playfullearning #happychildren #growingup #caring #motherhood #fatherhood #happiness #parentingtips #thedanishway #thedanishwayofparenting #playthedanishway #ibensandahl #ibendissingsandahl #writer #mom

This book just rocked my world! I could not put it down- making it the second book I’ve ever read in a day. Not only did I learn numerous ways to parent better, it gave me great insight into myself and my own upbringing. I would highly recommend it to any parent or teacher. Okay, now back to trying to finish The Gospel Comes with a Housekey...

Who says meals on wheels is just for the elderly?? A meal all packaged up for my friend to collect.

2 years ago my friend and I (who lives close by @freshairmum !) came to the realisation that one of the hardest times of the day to parent is dinner time.
It can be especially fraught and stressful if you are trying to cook a fresh meal at this time with hungry mouths and tired eyes!

So we decided to do a meal swap!
One night a week each of us would prepare and cook a meal for the other and their family. The one not cooking as standard collects the food wrapped and boxed up like a take away!

It’s been fab as while we don’t confess to be the top of chefs (I speak for myself!) the priority is not in the quality or the complexity in the meal - it is that for one night a week we have a break. A break from cooking, a break from as many dishes to clean and ultimately a time we can devote to spending with the kids, knowing dinner is sorted!!
When we are cooking anyway - a few extra mouths to cater is barely any burden, but for the other it serves up a meal and a night of freedom - and the best gift, time!! 😍

These moments of sanity are gold dust, and if all you might have is a pocket of time with your children in the evening as you work, they are in school, childcare, or other, it allows you the chance to enjoy those precious moments! 🤗

Repost from @thedanishway using @RepostRegramApp - There is nothing more refreshing than going outside. Going for a walk together as a family, stopping by the pond to watch the ducks, throwing leaves up in the air in the forest or paddling with bare feet in the sea in summer. All these activities create intimacy and a sense of belonging. The important thing is to spend time together! #playthedanishway #nature #freeplay #lovelovelove #togetherness #familytime #happiness #parenting #happychildhood #parentingtips #motherhood #fatherhood #thedanishway #thedanishwayofparenting #ibensandahl #ibendissingsandahl #writer #mom

Repost from @thedanishway using @RepostRegramApp - Children who learn to value realness and honesty learn that pain is a natural part of life.

“I turned out ok” is not a good enough reason not to try to be better for our own children. One of the most powerful things we can do is choose one or two things we would like to do differently and focus on those. We can not change everything but one or two things we can and this is extremely powerful for the next generation. For me, I decided I would not spank or use authoritarian parenting and try to change a very unhealthy relationship to food. Both of these ran in my family and I work hard to try to make sure they run out in my own family. What have you decided to focus on changing in your parenting? #parentingmatters #thedanishway #thedanishwayofparenting #jessicajoellealexander #authorsofinstagram #authenticity #reframe #makingadifference
