About Life Through Little Eyes
Life Through Little Eyes started as my way to reflect on my parenting.
Since studying the RIE (Resources in Infant Educaring) philosophy by taking the RIE Foundations Course I wanted to parent my boys with respect. RIE, which focuses on babies under 2 but the principles apply to any relationship of any age, gave me an understanding that babies are born competent and whole.
This way of viewing children helps me to support rather than fix; accept rather than teach and hold connection at the heart of my relationship my with children.
I aim to set boundaries respectfully and respond rather than react. Note the use of the words "I aim"! I believe in saying sorry, letting go and starting again. I parent not with the aim of being a perfect parent but with the aim of connecting human to human, where we all make mistakes, grow, learn and love. ❤

This is encouraged by using a range of simple play objects which stimulate the child to use their imagination rather than take a passive role, which many toys with lights and music do.
