The spring issue of The Natural Parent Magazine is all about being thankful – and there’s plenty to be thankful for in this issue! Check out the beautiful adult colouring in page on page seven. According to experts colouring in calms the mind. Focusing your attention on this simple task, that requires repetitive motion, can act as a type of meditation and helps replace negative thoughts and create a state of peace in your mind. Make a few copies so that you can sit down and colour in with your children. We would love to see your finished results so be sure to share on the The Natural Parent Facebook page. We’ve got an interesting take on pregnancy and veganism – a question many-a-parent ponders, is it possible? Our breastfeeding section covers the issues surrounding ending the breastfeeding relationship, and we have an awesome piece on planning a party for children with eczema and allergies. We hope you enjoy all of the usual sections with wonderful natural parenting articles from the amazingly wise Genevieve Simperingham and Pinky McKay – there’s something for everyone – Happy spring!
