My name is Şirin (pronounced Shirin) and I am a Conscious Parenting Coach and mother, as well as the author of the Innate Parenting Blog.
I offer guidance (with plenty of proven, useful tools) to parents who wish to raise their children in a conscious and loving way. I empower parents on their journey to heal their own childhood wounds and traumas, break the cycles for future generations and align with their natural parenting instincts. For more details on the coaching I offer visit Coaching.
There is no such thing as the perfect parent or person (myself included). We are all on our unique (as well as collective) journeys of learning and doing the best we can with the experiences and tools that we ourselves were given. As the saying goes – ‘it takes a village to raise a child’ – so it is perfectly natural and necessary for us to want support and guidance whilst we are on this journey (especially in this system where that village is often non existent).
“Parenting has nothing to do with perfection. Perfection isn’t even the goal, not for us, not for our children. Learning together to live well in an imperfect world, loving each other despite or even because of our imperfections, and growing as humans while we grow our little humans, those are the goals of gentle parenting. So don’t ask yourself at the end of the day if you did everything right. Ask yourself what you learned and how well you loved, then grow from your answer. That is perfect parenting.”
